Nikon School Presents: Photograph Ellis Island with Nikon Ambassador Joe McNally

This exclusive one day hands-on workshop with world renowned photographer and master of light Joe McNally will take place on Ellis Island. Attendees will access Ellis Island’s Hospital Complex and south side of the Island not readily open to the public. This private hard hat guided tour hosted by Save Ellis Island and led by Nikon Ambassador Joe McNally, will give students the opportunity to view historical buildings and capture haunting images of the site before its full restoration is completed.

You will learn tips and techniques for making the most of your photography in this historical setting.

During the course of the day, Joe McNally will educate on lighting, like only he can, and mentor students to create one of a kind photographs while Save Ellis Island’s staff will provide historical data about the island and buildings.

To enhance your shooting experience and personal gear, Nikon will provide access to lenses, DSLRs and Speedlights for you to use to take these extraordinary images and try something new.
