What you'll do

We meet under the CLOCK in front of the Sherry Netherland Hotel. Carefully cross Fifth Ave through Grand Army Plaza and straight into Central Park...

Suddenly the scenes and sounds completely change and the magic happens...

We approach The Pond to get to know each other and to get impressions of everyone's hands on knowledge of their cameras.

Then we find the right position to create a perfectly composed photo with reflections of the Time Warner Buildings.

Walking north we get a spectacular view of the sky few people will experience.

We walk towards the Gapstow Bridge incorporating some plants into the composition.

Then to the underside of a tree to learn how to make mother nature dance.

Up over the hill to the Wollman Rink area to challenge your compositions skill with a photo ''pop quiz''

Bathroom break rest stop if need at Heckscher Playground Bathrooms.

Insider access to the Carousel and Playmates Arch.

Past Sheep Meadow and then to The Mall and Literary Walk

Bethesda Fountain is next with a great view of the Boathouse

Then a bit of a nature walk to Bow Bridge.

Then up to Cherry hill towards Daniel Webster Monument

And finally to Strawberry Fields and The Dakota.
Other things to note.

Guests must know ALL about their camera/iPhone equipment settings.
Be ready to walk for 2 hours. Bring Snacks and water if you want.
