What you'll learn in this travel photography class:

Turn hum-drum travel photos into something to be proud of. Whether you're heading into or out of New York City, join us on this photo tour and learn to take better pictures before you start your trip. Whether it's buildings, statues, parks or your friends, this all around Photo Safari will show you how to find the best angles and lighting conditions so you can be sure to have memories that last a lifetime. On this "all around" Photo Safari you'll head over to New York City's newest and most talked about attraction: the High Line Elevated Park.

Located in the gritty Meat Packing District the High Line is a true example of the Urban Jungle with it's mix of modern, industrial city life with trees and foliage reminiscent of grassy hillsides. The Highline offers one of the NYC's best views of the Hudson River and the iconic NYC skyline so you'll take home great photos while learning how to do it yourself. 

This safari is appropriate for all levels of photographic knowledge from beginners to advanced hobbyists.

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.

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.

The instructor was very knowledgeable and I learned more about my camera. The timing was long -- 2 hours would be lots of time.

Zim has a very professional, no nonsense attitude which means that you get the most out of the 2 hour class. Definitely left us wanting more and with a lot to work on.
