Photo Location Guide: An Unconventional Way to Photograph New York

Living in Eastern Canada (Montreal) near the US border has a big advantage for any travel photographer or photo enthusiast; it puts you within driving distance of two beautiful and extremely photogenic cities; Boston, and New York I have a tradition where I visit New York at least once a year. Even if I have happened to visit during my business trips, I still try to find time to return on my own. Since I am not…

Photo Location Guide: The Best Spot for Photographing New York City from Above

It was the middle of August, and probably the hottest weekend of the year in New York. With temperatures way above 30 degrees and the humidity close to 100%, it felt like walking on a frying pan.
