Spark Your Creativity customizes photo hunts for you or your group. The Photo Experience teaches the skills of creativity through The Photo Hunt, iPhoneography, and Creativity Building. Whether in New York, London, Paris, Marseille, Rome, Venice or Berlin, The Photo Experience engages participants in 'Sapere Vedere' (knowing how to see) adventure to get you off the grid. The Photo Hunt in NYC embraces a creative mindset for participants to learn new skills, have some fun, and grow. The average 3h photo hunt includes a 1h hands-on lesson, 1h photo hunt (exploring classic, iconic, and unprecedented locations), and a 1h photo review (over coffee, lunch, aperitivo, or light meal). Creativity Building half- and full-day sessions are also available and offer drawing, private docent-led museum tours, artist studio visits, gallery walks, photo critiques and more.
