What you'll learn in this travel photography class:

Chances are that you’ve visited Rockefeller Center before, perhaps many times, but never like this! On the UPshot safari you will see it from the ground and from one of the tallest buildings in NYC. You begin at St. Patrick's Cathedral with its magnificent Gothic architecture and then on to Rockefeller Center where you will photograph the beautiful Art Deco that makes the Center so unique. The Center is also the home of Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Plaza (location of the NYC Christmas tree). Towards the end of your Photo Safari, you will take a ride up 70 stories to the Top of the Rock, which offers the best above ground views of both the Empire State Building and Central Park. During the course of your safari you will also learn how to use lines and angles to turn mundane images into unique photography. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of photographic knowledge from beginners to intermediate hobbyists.

Please note regular cancellation policies do not apply to this safari.

Meeting point: St. Patrick's Cathedral

This was pretty a nice workshop to me! There were a various situations at the park that we can learn some technical aspect as well appropriate way of thinking in advance of shooting. After taking this course, I definitly changed my attitude when shooting. Much helpful.

I really enjoyed my class yesterday. It was fun and I learned so much. Instructor is really helpful and hands on, giving tips and showed how to angle for taking good pictures. I will definitely recommend to some friends and register again for my next trip coming back to NY. It's really worth it for time and value.
