On September 22nd Save Ellis Island hosted Joe McNally, world renowned photographer for a one day Nikon Destination Workshop. Participants brought their own camera equipment and were given access to Nikon equipment – who wouldn’t want to try out all the latest Nikon DSLRs, lenses and Speed lights. The Nikon staff was on hand to assist with a selection of their equipment for use that day in photographing Ellis Island’s Hospital Complex.
The day started early with a ferry ride from Battery Park in New York City to Ellis Island. Mr. McNally provided an overview of the program and the Save Ellis Island staff presented additional historical data about the island and the surrounding buildings.
Two groups were then led by Save Ellis Island guides to various parts of the Hospital Complex including the laundry facility, morgue and autopsy room, ferry terminal and other areas. With Mr. McNally’s guidance, students were able to create their own one of a kind photo shoots.
Participants were amazed at the number of unique and thought-provoking scenes available to photograph.
A delicious boxed lunch and a Nikon gift bag were included in the day.
