What is the Photo ExperiencE?

The Photo Experience curates team activities to unlock creativity and promote personal growth and professional development for startups, businesses, corporations, nonprofit organizations, schools, and other educational, professional, and social groups. Whatever you do professionally, you will do it more creatively after this workshop.

The Photo Experience offerings—The Photo Hunt and Creativity Building—provide participants, in small groups, with new ways of seeing and interpreting the world through their cameras. Each experiential photo walk is grounded in the philosophy of sapere vedere (exercises in seeing) and increases participants’ visual vocabulary while hands-on camera practice encourages technical skills as a platform for play and self-expression.

The sessions are for all levels of experience and are tailored to meet the needs of the group:

The Photo Hunt is a 3h, day or night, smartphone or DSLR, group photo walk that explores iconic and off-the-beaten-track locations throughout New York City’s five boroughs. The Photo Hunt sessions offer insights into hidden, often unobserved aspects of daily life amid both ordinary and historically significant city locations, and foster the kind of connection to people, places, and things that only a camera can register. Night Photography is for DSLR aficionados who wish to work with a tripod for long-exposure photography. The goal of all The Photo Hunt sessions is to explore imagination as a tool to improve problem-solving skills and develop inventiveness and vision to boost productivity.

Creativity Building is a half-day (4h) session for hands-on photo exercises, docent-led museum tours, artist studio visits, and gallery walks to encourage a better understanding of art, both historical and contemporary. The sessions are customized and incorporate other modalities, lessons by multi-disciplinary artists, such as drawing paired with iphoneography, among other options that are designed to increase creative skills—observation, imagination, and communication—that help professionals better meet on- and off-the-job challenges.

Whether in New York, London, Paris, Milan, or Berlin, the sessions spark fulfillment and greater productivity when group members return to the workplace, office, boardroom, or classroom.

The Photo Experience, leading photo hunts since 2011, formerly available on Trip Advisor, recommended by Goop for things to do in NYC, and shortlisted by the Luxury Travel Guide for 2016 and 2017, is now bookable for team activities exclusively.
