I joined this tour (Iconic NY 2) to take beautiful photos of iconic New York city sights from the right angle and hopefully learn a thing or two. Check and check. My tour was lead by Zim who is a profressional photographer and happy to share her knowledge adapted to my level.

Had a great time with Zim on a chilly Saturday morning. She really takes her time to help get the shot right and to help you understand how/why it works or doesn’t. Highly recommended regardless of skill level.
