Overview

Join us on this fast paced Photo Safari to explore some of New York City's most iconic buildings. Photograph *Times Square*, the *Chrysler building*, *Grand Central Terminal* and the *New York Public Library*.

We'll show you the best vantage points to photograph these landmark buildings as you hone your photography skills. On this architectural photo tour, you'll learn how to work with lines and angles to bring these buildings to life, as well as how to photograph architectural interiors and have a better understanding of white balance. In the end, you'll take home iconic pictures of New York City that you'll be proud to share.

Note that Iconic NYC safaris scheduled in the afternoon take advantage of the sky's changing colours during the fading light of dusk, and conclude as the city lights come alive. (sunset times available here: NYC sunset timetable) This photography workshop is appropriate for all levels of photographic experience and is a great companion to Iconic NY P1 which is not required for this event.

I participated in the NYC Photo Safari tour with visiting Grand Central Terminal. I was very fortunate to join a pleasant group of people, led by a great instructor. She was exceptional! I enjoyed her insights and very organized and effective tour. I especially appreciated her total engagement, positive and friendly attitude. The highlight of the tour was shooting the main Terminal with the famous clock from high above in the building. Make sure you have a wide angle lens with a quality tripod, especially to take photos from a low vantage point. I really enjoyed the photography experience.

This was the first time I was really learning what I can do with my camera and making good use of it! I got great shots of Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, New York Public Library and Times Square. I can warmly recommend if you're looking for a professional and knowledgeable guide to make most of your camera and build up your skills.

I was in New York three weeks ago and took the day time morning tour that ended in Grand Central terminal and got great shots of iconic places. We had a great teacher and she keeps things light and moving along. I also appreciate how direct she is. She's in many ways an ideal teacher for my personality. This is a serious photography workshop.

Had a great afternoon learning how to photograph a city I love with a new perspective. The three-hour session helped me rethink the composition of my photographs and taught me how to shoot in low light settings, which have given me problems in the past. The class was small so we received great personal attention and help.

Born and raised in New Jersey, it is crazy to think I have not seen some of NYC iconic sights but going on this photo safari gave me everything I had hoped to get out of this tour and more. With a great instructor, that managed to be attentive to all her clients, she gave one on one and group instructions that can help any level photographer grow and refine their craft. She is funny and professional. I love forward to doing more photo safaris in the future and highly recommend this to anyone looking to see NYC.

Very good photo tour! The instructor is very focused and good at teaching at different levels. You get nice photo shots of classic New York landmarks with you back home. I have taken several tours and they have all been very good.

It was an exceptional class. I was lucky to be the only one attending that day and hence, got to learn a lot more. The instructor provides a lot of details with demonstrative examples that I found extremely useful for low light/night photography.

Great experience seeing some of the iconic sights of NYC-Grand Central Terminal; The Empire State Building; Rockefeller Center; Central Park; Times Square; etc. in a small group photo experience with an instructor who knows her stuff! Our instructor knew the ins and outs of each site, each of our cameras, and taught us new ways of seeing and thinking about photographing the most famous locations in new and different ways!

It's a fun way to see and photograph parts of the city as a tourist, a hobbyist or as someone interested in urban photography. It's also excellent for solo travellers--see the city and concentrate on your photographs without the worry of being alone. I'm looking forward to my next Photo Safari and I highly recommend it.
