The Moose Cruise II Sponsored by Lexar and Circle Line
Thursday, October 3, 2013 | 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Join master photographer Moose Petersen as he takes command of a swift Circle Line Ship for the second year in a row. Get up close to iconic NYC monuments like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island; shoot from a unique vantage point beneath legendary bridges such as the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg Bridges and more. Moose will be on the ship board public address system to point out key photo ops as well as mingling with the attendees and spreading his wisdom. We have timed this cruise to provide possibilities for stunning photographs lit with a spectacular fall sunset.
Last year’s Moose Cruise was one of the most successful events we have ever done, but based on your feedback, we have made it even better! We have imposed a strict limit on the number of guests that are allowed to register (the ship will not be as crowded as the first Moose Cruise). We have also enhanced the itinerary from last year’s Moose Cruise, Moose will start the cruise from the Pier 83 southward around lower Manhattan and under the “Big Three” bridges and then turn us around to spend ample time in perfect golden hour light to capture the Statue Of Liberty and Governors Island. Lastly, one of Circle Line’s expert guide will be working with Moose to provide added insight to the magic place that NYC’s water ways are. Get ready to set sail!

Moose’s true passion has always been and remains photographing the life history of our endangered wildlife and wild places. Since 1981 he and his wife Sharon have dedicated their lives to this pursuit. Educating the public about our wild heritage is their hallmark. In recent years Moose has added aviation photography to his pursuits with the same goal of preserving our flying history, pictorial and oral for future generations. Along the way Moose has been honored for his photographic passion: a Nikon Legend Behind the Lens, Lexar Elite Photographer, recipient of the John Muir Conservation Award, Research Associate with the Endangered Species Recovery Program, just to name a few. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 131 magazines worldwide, author of 24 books including his latest, Captured and lecturing across the country to thousands upon thousands of photographers. One of the original Nikon shooters to receive the D1 in 1999, Moose embraced this new technology, becoming the only wildlife photographer in the world to shoot strictly digital in the early years. While a beta site for all the major hardware and software manufacturers, Moose continues being a creative innovator of new techniques both behind the camera and the computer, which is the driving force behind his photography and goals.
