Additional suggested items to bring include the following: memory cards (formatted and ready to go); extra batteries; a mini tripod; the camera's manual; and, a small pocket size note pad and pen.

NYC Photo Safari Review 

5 stars

 I had a great time on Friday with Zim. She was very attentive, helful and kind to all of us amateurs. She gave great tips and instruction. I have already processed 4 of the 'greatest hits' and they seem to be a hit with strangers and friends. Keep up the good work!

Question: What is the typical class size?

Answer: There will be up to seven additional participants on the New York City Photo Safari.

Question: I was thinking of purchasing the Photo Safari in New York for my brother's birthday but I'm not sure what kind of camera he has. Are there any requirements?

Answer: Even a cell phone camera would be okay for this class. If he likes he can rent a camera from the photo school by contacting them directly once he has confirmed his reservation.

Question: Should I bring my tripod?

Answer: This is more of a point and shoot class. In order to keep pace with the rest of the group the school asks that you not bring any unnecessary equipment.

Question: How strenuous is the walk?

Answer: The tour can range anywhere from 1/2 mile to 3 miles depending on the group. Over the course of 2 hours it's not that strenuous at all.

Question: Does this tour get cancelled often for rain?

Answer: The tour takes place rain or shine so check the weather before you go. In cases of severe weather (like a hurricane) you will be rescheduled directly by the tour company.
