What you'll learn in this digital photography class:

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 colors 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..

This safari covers a lot of ground, so put on your sneakers and be ready to move.

Meeting point: 
Midtown Manhattan (Please see your email for confirmation of exact location.)

Refund Policy

Our workshops are kept very small (max. 8 participants) which means not only do we usually sell out but we often turn away customers. So if someone cancels at the last minute we lose money. This is a "summary" of our photo Safari cancellation and rescheduling policy and may be changed without notice at anytime:

If you need to cancel: You must cancel 48 hours or more prior to the start of your Photo Safari in writing or by phone (718-268-9634) to receive a full refund.Participant may cancel a Safari up to 48 hours prior to its commencement and receive a full refund or credit towards a future Safari. If Participant cancels 48-24 hours prior to the start of their Safari, Participant shall be offered a refund or credit, minus a 25% administrative fee of the price paid per participant. If Participant fails to cancel or reschedule 24 hours or more prior to the commencement of scheduled Safari, or does not attend said Safari, Participant is considered a “no show” and is not entitled to any refund or credit towards future safaris. If Participant is "no show", participant may reschedule by paying a 50% extension fee if Participant contacts NYCPS within 48 hours after the end of the scheduled photo tour. NYC Photo Safari is not responsible for cancellations due to Participant’s medical emergency, acts of God or traffic delays, etc. however exceptions may be made on a case by case basis at NYCPS’s discretion.

If you booked through a third party (e.g. Viator, Coursehorse, Expedia etc) you must contact the specific website for a refund.

If NYCPS cancels or reschedules: Although we make every effort to conduct our events as scheduled, sometimes it is necessary to reschedule or cancel a Safari. Any Safari canceled by NYCPS for any reason other than inclement weather shall be fully refunded to the Participant; NYCPS cancellations due to severe and unsafe weather conditions may be rescheduled by participant for any date available on the calendar. In the event of a cancellation or location change we will try our best to give you as much advance notice as possible.

If NYCPS changes the location: From time to time it may be necessary for us to change the location of a Safari due to severe weather forecasts or other unexpected city events (i.e. protests, transit strikes, street closures, etc.). Location change may include moving a Safari indoors or outdoors. We will try our best to give you as much advance notice as possible in the event of a Safari location change. No refunds will be made due to a location change; participants may reschedule per the rules stated above.

Zim was an excellent photography guide and mentor. I learned to see the city in a new way. I recommend others to seek out her guidance in this and other tours she offers.

This was my second class with Zim. As before, I learned a great deal key photography principles, I appreciated her healthy criticism (I'm a stark-raving beginner), her helpful suggestions, and I admired her persistence in keeping the group (4) on track. (She even oohed and ahhed sufficiently when I did get something close to right.) Zim's a pro, a good teacher and a good guide. I recommend the tour and Zim without qualification.

Good class and an instructor that is keen to both help you and push you to do better. You get good shoots with you back. Much more precise and focused than some other classes I've taken.
