Join the NYC Photo Safari “3 1/2 Bridges Photo Tour”. Your tour will start in Queens at the Queensboro Bridge, then head to Brooklyn to the Williamsburg Bridge. From there enjoy a 15 minute ride on the East River Ferry to Manhattan. Along the way you'll have the opportunity to photograph the Manhattan skyline, the Manhattan Bridge, and the Brooklyn Bridge from the water. After landing in Manhattan you'll finish your safari by photographing the Brooklyn Bridge from the Manhattan side. During this photography workshop you will learn how to manage long exposures and color as it relates to night photography, with plenty of opportunities to do trailing lights. You will also learn how to take great pictures WITHOUT using a flash. Although a DSLR is preferred, you may use any digital camera with manual overrides; you MUST bring a tripod. (limit 6 participants per safari).

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.
Manhattan Photo Boot Camp: Cancellation and rescheduling policies above do not apply to Manhattan Photo Boot Camp. Participants must notify NYCPS no less than 30 DAYS prior to the start of the workshop to receive a full refund.
