A Bite Of The Apple – New York Street Shoot Workshop

June 15th, 2017 – June 18th, 2017

For aspiring and fine art photographers, nothing beats street imaging in the Big Apple, yes that’s right, New York City. In this workshop we are going to do exactly that, scour the streets of Manhattan and its surrounding neighborhoods for the best street photography images we can find. Having shot so many times in New York, that they have lost count, our guides are going to navigate you to the best scenes, at the best times, for the best images possible. Over the course of four days, we will be visiting multiple iconic locations, that encompass some of New York’s best architecture, best views and best street life.

During the course of this workshop we will make the most of the city’s mass transit system and visit multiple boroughs of the city, in search of the ideal light, for the perfect sunrise and perfect sunset pictures. Nothing beats a sunrise looking to the West over the South Seaport section of the city, or an early morning walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Evenings can be magical when shot from the Jersey side, looking back at the Lower West Side, you just have to know where to be, and we do.

With walks through the Meat Packing District, the High Line, Central Park, Times Square, Fifth Avenue and the World Trade Center areas, you know we will be covering all the highlights of Manhattan. We have also partnered with a local guide to arrange behind the scenes access to at least two locations that almost no photographer ever gets to see, let alone shoot from.

No trip to New York would be complete without making the most of the city’s amazing dining opportunities as well, this is one area of the workshop where no detail has been missed. We will avail ourselves of some of the finest cuisine that the city has to offer. Finest cuisine does not necessarily mean the most expensive cuisine either, having spent many years in New York, we know the restaurants that offer fantastic meals, without fantastic prices.

So come explore the city with us, capture some of the best images of your life, see the city in a way that few do, and break bread with new friends in a town that really does offer it all.

Description:

Officially The City of New York, though more commonly called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States. Boasting a population of roughly 8.5 million in 2015 within a land mass of just 305 acres, New York also qualifies as the most densely populated city in the United States. The city, located at the Southern tip of the State of New York, is the center of the New York Metropolitan Area and is one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world. As a global power, New York exerts a significant influence on commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education and entertainment. The pace and pressure of a New York city life is aptly summed up in the phrase In a New York Minute. Hosting the headquarters of the United Nations, New York truly has an impact of international diplomacy and is often described as the cultural and financial capital of the world.

Comprised originally of five separate boroughs:

  • Brooklyn
  • Queens
  • Manhattan
  • The Bronx
  • Staten Island

New York was consolidated into a single city in 1898. Situated on one of the world's largest natural harbors, the city and its metropolitan area constitute the leading gateway for legal immigration into the United States. It is estimated that as many as 800 languages are spoken in the city, making it one of the linguistically diverse cities in the world.

New York City can trace it origins to 1624 as a trading post situated in what is now Lower Manhattan, at the time being founded by the Dutch Republic as New Amsterdam. The city and its surroundings came under the control of the English in 1664 and at that time were renamed to New York after King Charles II. Serving as the Capital of the United States from 1785 to 1790, it has been the country's largest city since 1790. Host to the Statue of Liberty, New York has long stood as a symbol of our country's democracy and welcoming spirit.

Long considered a tourist mecca, New York hosted 60 million visitors in 2015 alone and claims three of the ten most visited tourist destinations globally. Several sources have ranked New York the most photographed city in the world. Times Square, iconic as the world's heart and its Crossroads, is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway Theater District, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. The names of many of the city's bridges, tapered skyscrapers, and parks are known around the world. Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, and the city is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Manhattan's real estate market is among the most expensive in the world. Manhattan's Chinatown incorporates the highest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere, with multiple signature Chinatowns developing across the city. Providing continuous 24/7 service, the New York City Subway is one of the most extensive metro systems worldwide, with 472 stations in operation. Over 120 colleges and universities are located in New York City, including Columbia University, New York University, and Rockefeller University, which have been ranked among the top 35 in the world.
