Time Out says

Aspiring photographers with a love for The Big Apple can combine two of their passions in a New York City Photo Safari tour. Led by professional, New York-based photographers, a photo safari is a guided tour meant to help participants capture beautiful shots of historic New York landmarks and imagery. Some of their most popular offerings include the Iconic New York series. These tours take participants to locations like Radio City Music Hall, the Empire State Building, and the New York Public Library while the instructor teaches students how to properly compose an image and which angles will best show off each landmark. The daytime tours are well-suited for beginner photographers.

New York City Photo Safari also offers various night tours for more advanced photographers wanting to boost their night photography skills. Some of the night safari locations include the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square. The night tours focus on essential night photography techniques, like long exposure and flash. Participants who are interested in attending a night tour must bring a tripod with them; a DSLR camera is preferred, but not required.  

Having lived and worked in the city for several years, the expert instructors know all of the tips and tricks to highlight the beauty of New York in every photo. All tours begin with a short discussion of basic photography skills and technical issues that may impact the location. Each tour is limited in size to ensure each student has time to ask questions and get hands-on support to get the perfect shot.  While there aren’t any photo safaris available specifically for children, young photographers under 18 may enroll as long as they’re accompanied by an adult. 

Folks who have attended a New York City Photo Safari class tend to enjoy themselves and leave highly satisfied with their experience. Many students report wanting to go on additional tours with the company because they learned so much, and the instructors are often praised as being enthusiastic, patient, and helpful. A lot of participants also reported feeling that they learned plenty of tangible skills to improve their photos.
