  • Notes

    Groups are kept to a maximum of five people so that everyone gets individual attention. Usually, afterwards we end up at Nathan’s or a Russian restaurant for coffee and treats and conversation. We usually meet at the Stillwell Avenue “F” line train station but alternative arrangements can be made in advance. If there is a cancellation, it must be 48 hours prior the start of the street photography seminar, and either a full refund or credit towards a future Photo Adventure will be given. Any changes must also be made 48 hours in advance.


  • Tips on finding the best light, capturing street portraits, streetscapes and architectural details.
  • Technical pointers on settings: ISO, AV (F-stop), TV (shutter speed) and M, white balance, bracketing and compensation control.
  • Elements of composition.
  • Coney Island history and street photography lore.


Trip Info

Coney Island was the first stop in the new world that explorer Henry Hudson made in 1609. Over the next 400 years the changes that took place would have shocked him. By the mid-1800s, it had become a playground for very wealthy New Yorkers who arrived by steamboats and yachts, stayed in the swankiest hotels, and gambled at three racetracks.But as the century closed Coney Island became known as the “nickel empire.” Millions of New Yorkers who were poor and working-class escaped the heat of summer at the beaches and on the rides. It was an enormous carnival, a place of dreams. And it is still a photographer’s dream – a mesmerizing mixture of the old and of the new.

Your adventure awaits!
