Vintage Vegas
with Julien McRoberts
February 5 - February 9, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


Ever wish you could swing back in time and experience the real Las Vegas? The Vegas of Sinatra, Elvis, mobsters and showgirls? The crooners may be gone but the spirit lives on and the hot downtown area of Las Vegas is a photographer’s paradise

Working out of the Freemont street area we photograph the Neon Museum’s Neon Boneyard; it’s full of retro neon signs dating back as far as 1930. We explore night photography, capturing the restored Freemont Street neon signs which come to life at night, along with showgirls and characters galore. Also on the agenda are vintage casinos, quirky wedding chapels, mid-century architecture, the Mob Museum and the First Friday Arts Festival. Keeping with the vintage theme, we dine out in the classic lounges, diners and restaurants that were favorite haunts of the Rat Pack and Hollywood celebrities.

During our photo adventure we focus on honing our travel photography skills and our personal styles. The schedule includes daily field demonstrations.

On Saturday we venture to the Strip, experiencing the Vegas of today, including many of the endless sites and hotels along this famous route. Sunday morning you can photograph on your own as well as have an individual review of your work.

Join Julien on this unique photo journey that is a must for nostalgia buffs.

Includes tuition and entry fees to the Neon Boneyard and the Mob Museum. Transportation, meals, and lodging are extra. Hotels in the Freemont Street area are very reasonable, ranging from $35 - $89 per night for three-to-four-star hotels.
