New York City – from Chinatown to the Brooklyn Bridge, from the Top of the Rock to Times Square, from Central Park to the Oculus – offers endless photo opportunities. Add Dumbo/Brooklyn Bridge Park, Coney Island, and the Unisphere, along with a private, sunset boat ride around lower Manhattan Island, and you have the makings of an awesome “images with impact” portfolio.


Canon Explorer Rick Sammon, along with a team of dedicated and talented Canon Live Learning professionals, will be your photo guides and photo coaches on this fast-paced, live-learning photo workshop. We’ll have some early morning shoots, including a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, and evening shoots, including a sunset shoot at Dumbo Pier in Brooklyn. Also we’ll have processing sessions where you’ll learn how to enhance your pictures in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
