Join Joe DiMaggio for an exciting photo workshop during the holiday season in the ‘greatest city in the world’” and the one that Joe absolutely loves—New York. New York City is known to take on a special feeling during the holidays, a wonderful combination of sights, sounds, and energy.

We will start at the iconic Plaza Hotel where we will meet moving onto Central Park’s with it’s calm, tranquil beauty so lovely in any season; with a bit of snow it can be a winter wonderland and the perfect location for shooting scenics with the backdrop of the city skyline. Just past the many horse-drawn carriages, and a short walk into the park is Wollman Skating Rink, a great place to work on time/motion shooting skills as the colorful skaters whiz by. After finishing shooting in the park, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your questions with Joe during your lunch break. And then after lunch you’ll head down, to St. Patrick’s Cathedral, where you’ll work on low-light skills and other tricks of the trade. From there we will continue onto Bryant Park one of the best-kept secrets in NYC. Bryant Park has a great tree, great shops, and another ice skating rink. There is always a lot going on this time of year, without having to maneuver through the holiday shoppers, tourists and massive crowds you will find at Rockefeller Center, viewing the decorations and displays which sometimes can get a bit uncomfortable and difficult to navigate.

*Itinerary may be subject to last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances.


Equipment: Since this is an all-day walking event, you want to go as light as possible-really! Recommended lenses are one wide-angle zoom, preferably f/3.5 or faster, and one mid-range telephoto zoom preferably f/4 or faster. Bring more memory cards and batteries than you think you will use, a cleaning cloth, and a small strobe if you have one.

Clothing: We will mainly be outdoors so dress casually and comfortably in layers for the weather of the day, with good walking shoes. If the forecast is for cold weather make sure and be prepared, especially gloves to protect your hands (cameras get cold!) and possibly hand warmers stashed in your pockets if that appeals to you.

Level: All levels, from Photo Enthusiasts to Aspiring Pros.
