A NYC tour of light, time and form

Images of the Lower Manhattan Skyline at sunset can be breathtaking. This photography tour aims at catching that beauty. I will guide you, just as the sun starts setting, from pier 11 on Wall Street across the East River via ferry to Fulton Landing. Photographers call this time of day, "the golden hour. "
We then tour Brooklyn Bridge Park and Dumbo, as we strategically set up our shots for the magical lighting provided by the sun's descent. The tour will culminate with a walk back over the Brooklyn Bridge to Lower Manhattan. This provides still more photo opportunities as natural light bows to New York's glowing electricity, glittering in the early evening sky.

Learn a bit about Lower Manhattan skyline and the history that has connected Brooklyn and Manhattan for over 400 years as you hone your photographic skills.
