Field Guide: Midtown Manhattan

  • 476 5th Avenue New York, NY (map)



Ask yourself: Is Midtown boring, or fascinating?   Is it an oppressive symbol of Capitalism, a glittering tourist trap, or a storied old-school neighborhood in flux?  Regardless of our preference for or against Midtown Manhattan, its importance as a main hub of commerce and its high concentration of available subjects makes it a uniquely fascinating area to photograph.   We'll dig deep into Midtown, checking out the New York Public Library, Grand Central Terminal, Bryant Park, Times Square... you know... NEW YORK CITY.   Ask yourself: Can these streets be captured in a fresh way?  Are there any new stories to tell?   Everything in the world has been photographed, sure.  But not by you.


What are Field Guides? 

3 hours of exploring new territory, re-analyzing older terrain, using the city as set designer for your ideas.  Each Field Guide meets on location where we quickly recap some of the greatest hits (or lack thereof) of our particular meeting point.  Following the introduction are two live shooting periods, divided by a quick meetup and feedback session.  Finally we'll reconvene for an optional drink/snack and chat at a noteworthy local establishment.

Field Guides are accessible ways to find inspiration, get motivated and out taking advantage of the city.   Wasn't there a reason you ended up here?
