“New York City (NYC) Photo Safari”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Zim was Great! She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, funny, helpful and provided excellent photo opportunities. More importantly she freely shared information and provided good and useful suggestions about how to get a better photograph. It was fun way to spend three hours seeing NY through a professional's eyes and learning heaps about photography

Dear Steve N,

Thank you for taking the time to write a positive review about your experience. We're glad you learned a lot and had fun at the same time. We believe that if you are not having fun with photography you will never take a great photo! Do join us again the next time you are in the city!

This was one of the best parts of our trip. I used a higher quality camera and my husband used his iPhone, yet we both benefitted and learned a lot from this class. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it.

“A great evening learning stuff, in a fantastic classroom”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

I did the night-time safari and it was fantastic - I learned a load of new stuff and had a lot of fun doing it. Theres a good mix of technical instruction which is delivered at exactly the right pace, help finding new angles *and* silly camera tricks.

(and we all went for a drink afterwards, which showed how well the group of strangers had worked together)

My boyfriend and I took the Iconic New York tour with Zim which was fantastic! I am a novice photographer and my boyfriend is a little more experienced and we both found the tour incredibly informative and great fun. Not only did we get to see some of the main sights around NYC but got to grips with our cameras a bit more which in turn improved our shots for the rest of our holiday. Zim is great teacher and is good fun too! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to take brilliant shots of New York!
