I had a fantastic experience with Zim. She gave me the perfect amount of guidance, I have already implemented the tips and my photos have improved greatly. I highly recommend this experience with Zim!


This is my 2nd NYC Photo Safari - and I'll be back for more! Not only did I have the opportunity to explore the city with a local, I learned so many things that are going to make me a better photographer. We talked about composition, light, and how to better leverage features in my camera. I came away with some great shots and lots of tips and tricks to build upon. I'll be back!


I came in with zero knowledge of photography and walked away feeling pretty confident in using my camera in my upcoming trip. Zim walked through the basics of the camera, did real time demonstrations of the differences between the settings and then applied it in taking some pictures around Central Park. Truly a wealth of knowledge and truly a blast to hang out with! Would highly recommend anyone curious about photography or looking for some guidance in navigating NYC photography.


This tour taught me more about photography and how to take a good picture in 2 hours than I learned in 2 years with online videos. Zim was incredible and was beyond patient with me! I will definitely be back to learn more and get more shots!


My 15 year old son took the “tour” and learned so much. It’s definitely more of a workshop with lots of instruction on how to best use your camera features. The small group size (in his case only 2 people) meant everyone got individual time. His instructor was super experienced and got him thinking on how he could use this hobby to earn a living.


Zim, our instructor, was awesome. Right from the start you could tell she knew what she was talking about (she had 25 years of professional experience). She was easy to talk to, and made us feel comfortable. It was fun and totally recommended


Zim was a pleasure, she knew how to unlock things from my camera I didn't know existed. Was able to think about how to take pictures in a whole new way and get the most out of every shot. Highly recommend to anyone looking to capture great photos of NYC


Had a great experience on the photo tour led by Zim! She did a great job relating her experiences and also understanding my skill level and needs. I learned a lot on the tour and would definitely recommend it!


We wanted to highly recommend the Central Park Photography Tour. Our guide Frank really knew his stuff and showed the group how to capture beautiful photos of the park. We highly recommend it if you've been to the park many times or its your first trip to NYC--it's a new and fun way to experience Central Park and have beautiful photography show.


Zim is a great instructor! She met each of us in our family of 5 where we were in our journey toward becoming better photographers. I learned so much about composition, framing, when to zoom or not to zoom….. It didn’t matter if you had a DSL camera like my husband or an iPhone like me. She had us laughing and learning the whole time. Zim also did a fantastic job communicating with us before the class -she answered our questions and sent us clear instructions about where to meet. I highly recommend NYC Photo Safari.
