NYC Sightseeing Photography Tour

This Photo Tour Helps Your Visit To NYC Be Picture Perfect

Pho­tos last a life­time. Your moments in the city need to be cap­tured. Unde­ni­ably New York City is home to some of the worlds most pho­tographed land­marks. From icon­ic build­ings and bridges to land­mark loca­tions like Time Square, Grand Cen­tral Sta­tion and Cen­tral Park, there’s a lot to cap­ture in the city.

Are all pho­tos the same? That’s the ques­tion we asked our­selves before embark­ing on a pho­to safari with NYC Pho­to Safari.

Cer­tain­ly all pho­tos are NOT the same.

Pho­tog­ra­phy loves rejoice! You can see NYC through the eyes, (and lens) of pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­phers thanks to NYC Pho­to Safari. Pho­tog­ra­phy pros share their pro­fes­sion­al insight and insid­er tips with tourists and pho­tog­ra­phy buffs alike.  We fall into the tourist cat­e­go­ry, but were in good com­pa­ny with plen­ty of seri­ous pho­tog­ra­phy lovers.

What We Liked

Pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­phy gear was not a must for this tour. While many par­tic­i­pants brought a wide range of equip­ment, we were able to shoot using a smart phone. Our guide did an amaz­ing job instruct­ing us though how to use our cho­sen “Tool” to receive the best pos­si­ble out­come. From light­ing and per­spec­tive to focus and depth, it was amaz­ing to learn from a pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er how to max­i­mize images using a smart phone.

Added Bonus

Through­out the safari, our guide shared with us a great deal of his­to­ry and inter­est­ing facts that only a true New York­er would know. Not only did we learn how to see the city through new eyes we also learned some pret­ty amaz­ing tid­bits about our favorite icons.

Who is this safari for?  Hon­est­ly, it’s for any­one want­i­ng to tru­ly cap­ture New York. Sure we could roam the city on our own and snag pics, but we would have missed so many details in cen­tral park.  It was so fun, and well worth the expe­ri­ence to slow down and focus on cap­tur­ing for­ev­er memories.

As one of the high­est rat­ed pho­to tours in New York City, NYC Pho­to Safari has a broad mix for tourists and pho­tog­ra­phy lovers to choose from, includ­ing week­end safari’s. And for the tru­ly adven­tur­ous, they lead inter­na­tion­al pho­to safaris all over the world.

We don’t fall into the cat­e­go­ry of a hard core pho­tog­ra­ph­er, so we stuck to the day­time safaris. Our two favorites were the Brook­lyn Bridge and Cen­tral Park safaris. Next on the list is the icon­ic pho­to tour which is a favorite among par­tic­i­pants and one of their high­est rat­ed tours.
