The Living Marsh: Landscape Photography in Wild Urban Parks with William King

Thu 27th Jun, 2024 – 5:00pm

Posted by APA New York

Adorama, 42 West 18th Street, New York City


Many New Yorkers are unaware of the Marine Park Salt Marsh, the largest park in Brooklyn. It is a wetland marsh with a wide variety of species of wildlife and plants, and walking trails to enjoy all the nature for as far as the eye can see. It’s a place New York City landscape photographers should explore!

Veteran photographer William King has made it a personal project to photograph the Marine Park Salt Marsh, and with stunning results. In this presentation he will show you how you can too. As he presents his images, William will discuss the considerations for photographing  in this wild place; various photographic shooting styles and equipment, as well as the special items a photographer will need on their check list to be able to create images out in the wilds of Brooklyn (or any other wild place)!

This event will be held in-person at the Adorama Event Space.
