Instructor was outstanding in that she gave individual attention in a group environment. She was specific in my needs, and made my photography better.

We did the Central Park Safari. Our instructor was great and the class size was intimate enough that she was able to help each of us at our skill and equipment level. My daughter learned how to use her new camera and I learned how to use the camera in my new smart phone.

Did a Central Park photo safari with Zim on Friday 3rd May. She is very enthusiastic about photography and spends lots of time explaining how to get the best from your camera. Although there were about 7-8 of us on the safari she managed to spend time with everyone explaining things and looking at your pictures and showing you how to improve them. Who knew that shooting into the sun could create such images! We were really impressed. Would have liked to do another safari but we were on a very tight sightseeing schedule but this is definitely a top thing to do in New York if you are in to photography or want to learn more about how to take really good holiday shots to impress your friends. After this my shots of the rest of our New York trip were really good and my Brooklyn Bridge was very impressive I thought.

Learning about photo composition while walking around Central Park was a wonderful experience. I learned a lot, so much so that I would take the class a second time. I had Zim as an instructor and she was wonderful, she was very personable and helpful. She understood that my expectations were to just take better photos when I go on vacation or at an important event and she taught me a lot about how to do that through composition and few settings on my camera.

This class covered more in NYC spirit and photography learning than I realised - for the rest of my trip, I could 'hear' Zim's lessons over my shoulder and am so grateful! Learned about my camera and learned loads about the complex simpicity of taking a good-better-best shot - thanks Zim; wish I had been able to do more than the Central Park class, highly recommended experience.

We went on the Central Park photo safari with Zim on a very, very, very frigid January morning! There were a total of 3 students. The park was nearly empty because of the extreme cold. Zim was super awesome. She's a passionate, educated, effective teacher. She loves sharing her vast knowledge and skill with others. She's a LOT of fun to be around. She adapts her teaching to the level of each individual participant. She does a great job of devoting equal time to each student's learning and interests. Zim made sure everyone got attention and encouragement. She gave us specific assignments, then immediately reviewed our work and provided feedback for improvement, demonstrating exactly what she meant when necessary. I really appreciated that she encouraged us to contact her after the tour if we thought of any more questions. You really can't get a better experience than what we were provided by Zim and New York City Photo Safari!

This was the perfect setting to learn. Small class size maximized the individual attention provided by the instructor. By providing feedback on photos, you learn how to improve your photography skills. The instructor, Zim, was very knowledgable and extremely helpful. Would definately take another class!

Very easy going, well paced and adaptive. Highly recommended. Best for composition, I would be amazed if you didn't end up with more usable shots after the course. Great hands on instruction with plenty of show and tell, you show her your shot and she tell's you what to try to fix it!

NYC PS should break the classes into beginners and advanced levels. Trying to cater to both in the same 2.5 hour period is simply unrealistic. While I don't doubt the experience of the knowledgeable instructor, I just fundamentally disagree that the best approach is to buy a cheap camera, leave it on auto, and focus entirely (pun intended) on composition.
I think the value (time and money spent) of the "Central Park Photo Safari" is questionable for anyone above a beginning level SLR photographer.
If the compositional makeup of my group were different -- say all advanced amateurs, I think I would have had a different opinion.
