One week ago, we held our first Seasonal Photography Tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and the submissions are in! Several tour participants shared photos they took on the tour on Instagram, and now we are sharing them with you.
Professional photographer (well known for his work at National Geographic) and Navy Yard tenant Robert Clark will be “liking” his three favorite photos from this crop of submissions early this week, and the photographer of each will receive two free tickets to any one of Turnstile Tours’ experiences at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. We will be holding three more photography tours in 2013, and after each tour, a professional photographer from inside the yard will select three finalist photos. At the end of the year, these 12 finalist photos will be entered to win either the photographer’s choice award, chosen by a panel of professionals, or the people’s choice award, voted on by our online followers. Each winner will receive a private tour of the Navy Yard for themselves and their friends.
Thank you to everyone who submitted photos from the winter tour – we have some really phenomenal contenders! To see the full credits for each photo below, please click on the image. Thanks to Jean Hong, Rocco Cetera, Xenia Diente, Ashley Boggs, P.J. Carlino, Yuki Abiko, and Michael Musacchio for sharing their work! (Note: we at Turnstile Tours submitted some photos for photographers who do not use Instagram, but the credit is noted in the photo description if you click on the image in the slideshow).
We will be posting this season’s finalists soon, and we look forward to seeing you on our next photography tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Saturday, April 20!
