Brooklyn Botanic Garden Photo Walk

Wander the paths of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden as Mother Nature shows off her softer side. This walk is designed to cover a wide range of shooting opportunities from macro to landscape to (if we’re lucky) some of Brooklyn’s native birds and animals as they shake off their winter blues.

Join us at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, one of the oldest and most beautiful botanic gardens in the country, for a morning photo walk as we discover the hidden beauty of this magnificent location. We will tour, amongst other picturesque locations, the famous BBG Japanese Garden and their fantastic collection of Bonsai trees. The Gardens offer a perfect opportunity to get some great shots, allowing you to practice shooting both close-up style photography as well as landscapes.

This photowalk is offered every Tuesday morning.

Later in March, these magnolia trees start to bloom in all their glory. In April, it’s the cherry trees. Every day something is in bloom. A great opportunity for fantastic floral images.
