Taking a trip to New York City this season? Want to see the Highlights and the best spots for unforgettable pictures?
Join me on a professional photo walk and choose the best way to discover this awesome city. Experience the city that never sleeps. View NYC through the lens and keep awesome pictures as a lifetime memory.
We walk, talk shop, photograph and repeat over and over.
The photo walk is based on enabling you to get the best photographic shots of New York City. Each photo walk is special, depending on the prevailing lighting and weather conditions and the time of the year.
To ensure that you get as much attention as possible each tour will have a maximum of 4 participants. Whilst I aim to visit as many quality locations as possible during the photo walk and I also ensure that participants have the time to absorb their surroundings and learn how to fully ‘work’ a location.
Tours can be organized around your schedule and can be morning, afternoon or evening. Capturing New York City at sunrise or sunset can create dramatically different photographs.
How strenuous are the tours?
Anyone in general good health can handle the photo walk. Often there’s some place to sit, if needed.
What about bad weather?
We go rain or shine, though thunderstorms will make us take cover.

A camera is is the only requirement. Having a SLR (digital or film) is preferred but point and shoot cameras are just fine. A good camera does not make a good photographer. The best camera is the one you have.
Appropriate clothing, NYC weather can be unpredictable at best and rain is not uncommon. It also gets very cold and windy in the winter so the advice is be prepared, bring more rather than less, you can always take off extra layers if need be. Sturdy footwear is also recommended.

Discover and enjoy NYC together with me!
Since 1996 I traveled to New York City to discover more hidden places of this city. Join me on a photo walk and choose the best way to see it all is with a camera in your hand.
my name is Frerk Hopf and I was born in 1967 in Germany. I love taking photos. I’m not really a photographer, at least not a trained one but photography has always been my hobby and my passion. I got my first professionell camera in the young age of 10.
Since then I took thousend shots of people and nature while traveling worldwide. I trained my knowledge through several workshops and shootings. Now, in 2014 I turned my hobby to my new job.
