Jeff Berkes Photography just got a drastic overhaul on the website! New and improved galleries make viewing all  galleries faster and more enjoyable!

Whats new with the website?

Well, just about everything! The entire format has changed, litterally. The “image collection” has a brand new format with large thumbnails. Click on any thumbnail to enlarge it, see captions and descriptions for each image, click on that image again to return to the thumbnail gallery, simple right?

 The “Photo Tours” page has up to date information on 2012 workshops! As of now there are two (2) Nighttime / Meteor Shower Workshops planned for 2012, with others being added in this Spring. The “Exploring America”  Photo Tour page  has two (2) Adventures planned for August and September, one visiting Arches, Canyonlands National Parks, as well as Deadhorse State Park.  The other Tour will be in Yellowstone National Park – Geysers, Landscape and Wildlife.

Hope you enjoy the new design!  If you happen to find any errors please inform us, so we can fix any issue asap! Thanks in advance.. Feedback is always much appreciated!

New York City Workshop

Communication Towers in NYC

I just had a private workshop in New York City last Saturday with someone I had the pleasure of meeting over the summer. We had a full day walking around the city, taking pictures and discussing camera techniques all while learning to train our eyes to find those ever so important photographic opportunities.  

We met up at the WTC site Saturday January 16th, 2010 at 11am. We went over some tips for creating powerful imagery and then hit the streets with those thoughts  in mind.  Some spots along with way were the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Little Italy, Rockafeller Center, Sunset View from the Top of the Rock. We finished the night in Time Square photographing the people and energy that surround the location.

Here are a few photos I took during the workshop. (More to come)
