The capture filter for a MAC address is in the form of ether host xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx where x is a hexadecimal digit.

To combine multiple addresses and then exclude them, firstly "or" them together and then negate the entire list, e.g.

!(ether host 12:34:56:78:9A:BC or aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff or ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff)

Depending on your exact requirements it would be something like this:

not ether host 00:01:02:03:04:05 and not ether host 00:06:07:08:09:0A

but you can check the Wiki for more details.
