Chasing Light with Grant Legan

LUMA is collaborating with renown commercial & editorial photographer Grant Legan on Chasing Light, a new seasonal photography walk and conversation series. Kicking off on June 5, 2019, this exclusive series will explore the concept of light and photography within the Times Square, Garment District, and Bryant Park neighborhoods that intersect at LUMA Hotel. Grant will lead an engaging discussion on harnessing light as an inspirational tool in everyday photography.

Open to hotel guests and locals, the tour takes place during the magical “golden hour,” when the city transitions from afternoon to evening, offering a unique opportunity to photograph the city through a captivating light. Grant will lead the conversation around how light plays into photography, while attendees manipulate light to capture stunning photography of the surrounding skyscrapers, billboards, greenery & more. The walk will conclude in one of our suites overlooking the city, for a final photo-worthy moment from a unique vantage point.

Guests are encouraged to follow along on social media at @lumahoteltimessquare and @grantlegan as well as through the hashtag #ChasingLightAtLUMA.
