Find out what your camera can teach you.™

Boston Harbor has witnessed the arrival of British soldiers, the influx of European immigrants, international trade and a certain “tea party”!

Times have changed and Boston has a new waterfront that’s trendy and overflowing with photo opportunities.

We will follow Boston’s original shoreline hidden near Faneuil Hall and take a vibrant route to Christopher Columbus Park. Learn how to capture amazing images of the picturesque views of Boston Harbor, the Long Wharf area, the colorful roses in the Rose Kennedy Garden and John Hancock’s office building. We will also take pictures of the dancing fountains on the Greenway and end our tour at the iconic Custom House.

All skill levels welcome. Advance reservations required.
