Did a custom photo tour with Zim that was roughly this itinerary on a day when it wasn't available. Zim was great. She is a very experienced photographer and accomplished instructor. In particular, she listened to what photography challenges we were facing, asked some great questions, and got right into helping us improve.

I was looking for help with composition and finding compelling images to create while walking around. Zim typically would have me take a shot the way I was inclined to do it and then would show various alternatives, sometimes with just a suggestion and sometimes by actually photographing. In any case, she did quick critiques of all images and was really spot on with what I was looking for an how to improve.

I take a lot of online classes and I like them, but working with an accomplished instructure directly is a great accompaniment to what you can learn in a class or on your own. I'm looking forward to doing another session with Zim elsewhere in the city.

Zim was a great instructor. She is very knowledgeable and gave me a lot of pointers to improve composition. She also demonstrated a variety of ways to enhance my images by using and explaining various features on my camera. I am an intermediate photographer and felt Zim's suggestions definitely added to my skill set. Highly recommend!

I got this tour for a family member and I as she was visiting New York. This was a great way to enjoy NYC and also learn a lot about photography! We took many memorable photos, and had a great experience. It is definitely something to try if you would like something new to experience in the city!

This was my second time tour with Zim during the last 6 months. I got lucky again as other people did not show up, so it was a private tour again. I asked her to dedicate this one to wide angle lens use. I learned more then from any books or Internet sites. Highly recommend to anyone who likes to learn and improve photography skills in terms of composition and camera settings.

I live in New York and I recently took this photo safari to learn more about photography and my camera. I gained new photographic skills but I also learned to see my city differently. I can’t think of a more unique way to spend an afternoon that is fun, educational, and helps you take better pictures. New Yorkers should do it. When your friends come to town, you should have them do it. We all love taking pictures. Up your game and take even better ones or help your friends to do the same.

Zim was my tour guide and she was Fantastic. She helped me with my skills and informed me how to develop my view on how to take architectural photos. She was so informative and helpful with my camera. Zim was really professional and I really recommend her for that tour. if I can give her 6 STARS I would. Thank you Zim

This was a great tour. My girlfriend wanted to get more in to taking pictures of architecture and when I read the reviews I knew this was the right tour to take. Zim does a great job of taking you around and critiquing shots so that you can get better. Since this class was for my girlfriend she was using a professional camera and I was using my cellphone camera. Zim showed me how to access so many more features that I never knew the device to have. She also went over some of the more interesting bells and whistles that I was unsure of how to use. All in all It was a great tour and we came back with a wealth of knowledge.

I totally enjoyed my photo tour with Zim. Very informative and helpful on how to set up my camera and position myself to take creative shots that actually look pretty cool both indoors and out! I definitely want to take another course when visiting Manhattan again.

This was an interesting tour. What I had not expected was the amount of technical information/skills imparted as the tour encompassed a number of diverse challenges in the photographic environment. Our instructor focused not only on the composition aspects but in the technical aspects. Very useful and informative, I learned a fair bit.
