TripAdvisors give New York City Photo Safari an average of five owl eyes, ranking it the number 15 attraction out of more than 800 in the city. The company's customer testimonials also snap a snazzy picture of the photography workshops:
- The Safari was an excellent class and photo shooting experience. Professional all the way, and yet down to earth where one would feel comfortable asking questions. Would attend another Safari. – Catbeer007, TripAdvisor
- The instructor went over some basics that really helped me understand my camera better. Then there were lots of chances to put those tips into practice, with individual 'assignments' so even if there are people at different levels of experience in a group, everybody can get something out of it. – Courtney L., customer testimonial
New York City Photo Safari
New York City Photo Safari coordinates year-round educational excursions that blend hands-on photography lessons with tours of NYC's most famous locales. Owner Diem "Zim" Pham—who works as a travel photographer, a position that often requires the skills to create compelling images in less-than-ideal conditions—and Zim’s team of instructors are all professional photographers currently working in the industry. Safari sizes stay cozy at no more than eight people, allowing for a wealth of personalized feedback and troubleshooting advice for each apprentice. The Metropolitan Museum of Art safari employs the lauded museum halls as a setting for lessons in the use of light and how to overcome difficult lighting challenges, whereas the avant-garde High Line Elevated Park course instructs eyes in the art of composition. Aspiring politicos can embark on the City Hall safari, which fills memory cards with crisp shots of neo-classic architecture and caped superheroes flying to and from the mayor’s office.
