I live in New York and I recently took this photo safari to learn more about photography and my camera. I gained new photographic skills but I also learned to see my city differently. I can’t think of a more unique way to spend an afternoon that is fun, educational, and helps you take better pictures. New Yorkers should do it. When your friends come to town, you should have them do it. We all love taking pictures. Up your game and take even better ones or help your friends to do the same.

I did the Iconic New York Part 1 tour with Zim. She arrived promptly at the appointed time and greeted me in a friendly, but professional way. She showed me a few of my camera’s settings that I wasn’t taking full advantage of and then we were off to The Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, the Subway, and finished up on the southeast side of Central Park. I learned lots of things, but my favorites were how to use angles to make my shots more interesting, how to better position myself, and how to shoot the subway using a slow shutter speed and still have the proper exposure. You need to be able to walk briskly, and it helps to have a Metro card, as you will ride the subway. Zim also shared some of her knowledge about the city and encouraged questions. She’s a great teacher, with a good sense of humor and enough patience to deal with tourists who want to take good shots of NYC. I highly recommend this tour.

I've just started out in photography (5 months) but I finally wanted to give night photography a shot. Getting started seemed a little overwhelming so I went on this tour hoping to learn a bit of the technicals and to get some good photos and I got exactly just that. Zim's expertise is second-to-none and her sense of humor is really good at keeping the mood light and fun. She's more than willing to answer any questions you may have and has some great stories up her sleeve. I would highly recommend this tour to any amateur photographer.

I had a great experience on the Iconic Photo Safari (Part 2) with Zim. Zim was incredible helpful, sharing her expertise and helping me (as a total beginner) understand more about composition as well as about my camera. She had great tips on how to frame photos and was very patient. I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for help on how to best photograph NYC’s urban environment.
