Venice Beach Sunset and Electric Light Parade Photo Walk with Brian Leary

September 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Ticket Registration

On Sunday nights Venice Beach lights up with a dazzling parade of illuminated bicycles.  Parade participants use LED technology to express their artistic nature, decorating and stylizing their rides for a weekly trip on the Venice Boardwalk.  Join Brian Leary at Venice Beach for a look at Venice Beach like few others have seen it and learn how to capture it in a different way.

We will start out with instruction on how to experiment through the evening to create truly unique images. Then you will be free to roam around to capture the sunset and blue hour. You will want a camera with manual exposure capabilities and optionally, a tripod, even if it’s a small one still able to hold your gear. A jacket for the evening wind is also recommended.

Brian Leary

Originally from Central New York, Brian Leary has lived in Seattle for more then 15 years now.  Early on in his time in the Pacific Northwest, Brian developed a severe addiction to travel.  Through the benevolence of bosses at two different camera stores for more than a decade along with shooting everything from weddings to real world with his cameras.  Curious by nature he dove deep into all of the facets of photography.  During this time Brian realized a talent for taking complex theories within photography and distilling them to an easy to understand level. This lead to working with people in both group and inidividual settings to help them learn more about photography and what makes their own individual style. He eventlually left the life of retail camera sales to start his own photography education and workshop company, Light Source Journeys.  Brian has been writing for the Zeiss lenspire website since 2016 with topics ranging from nighttime landscapes to street photography and all matter of things in between.  By writing, speaking, teaching and leading workshops around the USA and the world, Brian loves to share both the art form of photography along with the places and cultures he is so passionate about with new people, hopefully, giving them a similar desire to explore further and be curious.
