My NYC Photo Experience
Ann_O, Sep 2022
This was an outstanding photography safari. I learned so much and I stepped out of my boring comfort zone. I learned to looked at buildings and focus on what I was shooting. My perspective on picture taking has evolved. The instructor was a Gem.

Sanjaya_W, Jun 2022
Today was a photographic revelation. Having travelled to many parts of the whorls and having undertaken many different photo tours this was simply the best. Zim was amazing. Fun, incredibly knowledgeable and she simply knew how to get the best shots. All three of us on the tour were blown away by the images we got with Zim’s guidance. First class all the way. For those passionate photographers out there just book this you will not be disappointed

Dear Sanjay - Thank you so much for your glowing review. It's fantastic to hear that you think we are the best! All of our instructors are actual working professionals and not just hobbyists who enjoy photography, or tour guides with a camera. This is why they can provide detailed information about photography and since they are ALL local New Yorkers they know the city and the best places to photograph as well. Diane NYC Photo Safari
A great experience!
Helen_F, Jun 2022
It was great to learn how to get the best photos from an expert, from framing your shot through to reflective images. Rob guided our group of 4 to take some amazing pictures. We also went away knowing how to recreate these shots for future pictures. Thank you Rob!

Seeing NYC through a different lens
Lindsey_S, Aug 2021
Such a great way to see the city and learn a few things, too. The photos I took with Zim will be the best souvenirs I bring home from this trip.
A very impressive tour
ChloeJo, Jul 2021
The tour guide is very helpful and informative. Zim is really cool and what impress me the most is how "scientific" she is. She teaches me how to take the most from my camera along with very convenient and effecitve way of taking better pictures. The angle she shows me is very unique, and the picture taken transform dual photos into lively and interesting spots.
