There's more than meets the eye in New York City. But perfect for the camera. From Times Square to Central Park, from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Highline, Photo Safaris are unique photo classes for small groups & individuals who want to learn how to capture the allure that's distinctly the Big Apple. While using NYC as both backdrop and classroom, these photography workshops provide unique photographic opportunities to sharpen your skills and capture memories for a lifetime. Groups are small, so you’ll get hands on instruction on how to use your camera and compose your pictures from an experienced professional photographer. These photo tours are also a great way to go on a Safari Manhattan style. NYC Photo Safaris are similar to walking tours with an added bonus of a photo class. Beginning your NYC holiday with NYC Photo Safari is a wonderful way to take a walking tour of the city and take home skills and memories for a lifetime.

Over 4500 participants from 45+ countries & 500+ cities have joined our photo tours..
All safaris are hands on shooting safaris, with the exception of Nuts & Bolts. Shooting safaris begin with a short discussion on composition and lighting; some safaris may include a discussion on technical issues specific to that particular safari. Participants are then given a photo assignments. The instructor will give feedback and direction on how to improve each participant's photographs.
Nuts & Bolts is a photography class designed to help participants better understand the inner workings of their camera and photography in general. This is not a shooting safari.
All of our photo safaris are kept small to insure that everyone has a chance to get their questions answered.
