The streets of New York are strangely familiar to every person who visits, made famous by the works of photographers such as Elliot Erwitt, Saul Leiter, Horst Harmann, David Bailey. A photographer can’t fail to be inspired by the iconic skyline, cosmopolitan buzz of the streets or the peace of Central Park. Join Paul Sanders (and Charlie Waite) as he guides you around one of the most thrilling and photogenic cities in the world.
You’ll have the opportunity to photograph the Big Apple from the heady heights above Fifth Avenue looking over The Empire State Building, capture the last light of the day as it sets Manhattan ablaze across The Hudson River or get up close and personal with the dazzling lights of Times Square.
Fall is the perfect time to visit this visual paradise with Central Park giving a colourful backdrop to the leisure time of New Yorkers. From landscape to Street, Architecture to Long exposure there is something for every photographer to experiment with.
Paul, formerly The Picture Editor of The Times newspaper, will show you around the city and will be on hand to answer any questions while giving you constructive advice to help you make the most of your time among the canyons of the city. There is also the possibility that we will be visited by Jay Maisel during the tour, to give a talk on his photography! (to be confirmed).
Paul will be joined by Charlie Waite on the 29th for the remainder of the tour, so you benefit from two great tutors for these days. The group is still limited to 8 partcipants so it is a great chance to work closely with Charlie Waite during the tour!
New York is not a city where you line up your tripods, it’s a city that has a different impact on every person who passes through it. Paul will encourage and guide you to find your own vision of NYC.
Of course no trip to New York would be complete without a little shopping trip - no not Tiffany’s (unless you want diamonds) but B&H possibly the world’s largest and most fascinating camera shop where goods are delivered to the counters by overhead conveyors and you can buy pretty much anything your heart desires!
We know that accommodation in New York City is costly and that some of you may prefer to stay with friends or other options, therefore we have priced the tour including and excluding accommodation. The cost of the tour including accommodation is £1999. The cost excluding accommodation is £1099. Please confirm by email when you book which option you would like.
(We have given this tour a 2 footprint as New York is very much a ‘walking’ city. Paul will be guiding you around the city on foot, how ever if you would like to take taxis then there is that option).
Staying at the Evelyn Hotel for 5 nights.
This tour is available with a 'no accommodation' option - please contact the office for information.
