Governors Island Photo

A special spot to wander about with a camera and a couple lenses is Governors Island, accessible via a very short ferry ride from Lower Manhattan (the departure point for our workshop) or Brooklyn.

Grassy expanses and older physical structures offer some unique visual opportunities, a chance to explore closeup former U.S. Army and Coast Guard buildings and two forts from the early 19th century. Bicyclists abound, but we'll be walking as we scout this island-park for impressive views of the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty and water traffic that sails by, stopping to capture the pounding waves that strike rock and send sprays high, right below the walkways. Public art sculptures and people watching are additional subjects that Governors Island provides for savvy photographers. A photographer's summer really shouldn't go by without a visit here, and this class makes for a visually rewarding experience.

The Governors Island Photo Workshop is one of a series of NYC area classes that I teach. See the entire schedule and sign up for my class mailing list to hear about new dates for workshops and photo outings.
