Quick Photography Sessions in New York City

A few neighborhoods I like to visit are the South Bronx, Astoria in Queens, Brooklyn Heights and Financial District in Manhattan.  I am always up for a quick ride on the Staten Island Ferry as well.

Manhattanhenge in New York City

Manhattanhenge, this ‘couple-times-a-year’ event continues to grow in popularity.  It’s free, it juxtaposes a beautiful sunset with the dense NYC urban skyline and most importantly it’s as instagram worthy as any food item you love dripping with melted cheese.

Partial Eclipse of the Heart

Today in New York two rare events occurred: the city was on the path of partial visibility (71%) of The Great American Eclipse and New Yorkers held back their indifference and showed interest in one another for a little over 1.5 hours — during their sacred lunch hour no less!

Paris Photo Walk

An overnight flight between New York and Paris is around 7 hours.  If you find a good flight deal and have a long weekend, what is stopping you from packing a couple shirts, grabbing your best walking shoes and picking up your camera for a quick trip across the Atlantic.  (Note: this is not like my 48 hours trip to Iceland, but a few curated pictures I took while strolling around Paris to inspire you to book that plane ticket.)

Urban Photography: In and Around Manhattan

Whether you have a DSLR or smartphone, photo opportunities present themselves all the time in New York.  You might stumble across some frozen camel milk at a grocery store on 42nd and 11th avenue or find your way across the George Washington Bridge for an afternoon hike in the Palisades.  Walking around let’s you experience all this great city has to offer (and will give you some things to circle back on and visit for a more in-depth visit the next time around.)

32 of our Favorite Full Access Instagram Photos from the Past Year

I went through the Full Access NYC instagram feed and pulled 32 of our favorite photos from 2015.  We started the year with some real cold and snow.  Spring and Summer allowed us to get in some community gardening, fishing in Central Park and nice bike rides along the Hudson River.  Fall brought vibrant colors and neighborhood exploratory walks.  Winter came again but has been mild and allowed us to get in some additional outdoor activities before our annual 2 month hibernation for the start of 2016.  

New Museum Photography Tour

When friends visit and have never been to a museum in the city, I take them to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met.)  It is huge and has a collection of artwork that spans thousands of years and covers the entire globe.  Simple as that.

However, not all New York museums focus on broad collections.  Some represent niche areas of the art world and have a specific style of artwork or region of the world.  The New Museum is just that; a contemporary art museum located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
