    Groups are kept to a maximum of five people so that everyone gets individual attention. Usually, afterwards we end up at a topnotch local bakery for coffee and treats and conversation. We usually meet at the Carroll Street “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.

  • Red Hook history and architecture, as well as street photography lore.


Trip Info

Red Hook’s seafaring history dates back almost 400 years when it became one of the first Dutch settlements in Breucklen. A peninsula surrounded by the Erie Basin, Buttermilk Channel and the Atlantic Basin, Red Hook was the point where ships from all over the world gained access to the City of New York. By the 1920s it had become the biggest and busiest port in the world. What remains today is the most uniquely photographable neighborhood in New York City, a place where you can still smell the salt of the sea, walk on Belgian paving stones and where you can see the front of the Statue of Liberty as she faces toward France.

Your adventure awaits!
