New York City Photo Safaris are led by professional photographers with a wide array of industry experience. We are first and foremost photographers; we have spent our careers pursuing photography. It goes without saying that we are passionate about it. The question is why and what are we passionate about? Perhaps the photo equipment? Photo gadgets are cool, but there's more to it than that. We want to share our vision. The opportunity to teach photography to amateur & emerging photographers via a photo walking tour is an opportunity to share our joy of digital photography. 

Our motto: "Turning Picture Takers into Image Makers." 

Whether you live in Lower Manhattan and are just looking for unique NYC things to do on the weekend, or a visiting tourist, our photo pros will help you take home great photographs of New York as well as photography skills & vacation memories that last a lifetime. While most photography walking tours provide historical information, our tours will help you improve your photography techniques & skills so you can create your own memories.

I have tried to learn photography skills from a number of sources and found Zim's approach to be most effective. She has a great combination of talents: extremely knowledgeable, listens well to what you want to learn, teaches in a way that you learn and won't forget.
