Yosemite National Park is a dream destination for any serious photographer, but what if you can't simply pick up and leave New York at the moment? One alternative can be found very nearby - just head on over to Kissena Park in Queens for a nature photo workshop with a walk around historic Kissena Lake.

I've designed this workshop for serious photo enthusiasts. I lead the group and provide instruction and inspiration to help you hone in on the details in nature - the shapes, patterns and relationships that magically appear when photographers push themselves to see more deeply and also to think at times in B&W. In addition to technique and artistic considerations, I share some of my philosophy on taking photographs, while offering short assignments to the group to help you fully embrace the environment - be it majestic trees and leaf patterns, ducks, turtles, and migrating birds, or the human element that can be found interacting with nature. We may catch seasonal color changes in the fall and even some competitive bocce ball players, before finishing up at the historic grove, which contains some of the world's most exotic trees, reminders of Samuel Bowne Parsons' (1819-1906) once flourishing and famed nursery. 

This workshop is open to serious photo enthusiasts with all levels of experience. A digital SLR camera is recommended. A light but sturdy tripod, though optional, will be helpful for portions of the class.

Small class size - limited to 12 participants.

Kissena Park is easily accessible by public transportation from Midtown Manhattan (7 Train and Q27 Bus) and close to most parts of Nassau County, Long Island.

Kissena Park Nature Photo Workshop is one of a series of classes that I lead. Sign up for my class mailing list to hear about new dates for workshops and photo outings.
