Extreme Tourism

Let’s kick off the GoPro NY Meetup group with an EXTREME romp through NYC. The final result will be an action packed video featuring the site and sounds of New York City - GoPro style. Bring your GoPro camera(s), charge your batteries and get creative! Don’t own a GoPro? Now is your chance to try one out.


We are teaming up with San Francisco based Meetup group Renegade whose fearless leader Martha Blanchfield is in town for the Photo Plus Expo at Javitz.


If you can’t take off work or have other plans, don’t fear, we will meet again during off hours.


If you have already RSVP’d Please email me at [masked] so I can send you my cell phone #


What’s the Plan?

Start downtown and work our way up, hitting landmarks along the way and capturing NYC in the mose extreme way we can :)  This will be an all day romp. We'll break for lunch and finish the day at Central Park with a special aerial "grand finale". Afterwards we can visit the Top of The Rock for panoramic views*


I will edit together footage of the day into an action packed piece that we will be posting and sending to our friends at GoPro!

    Saw the finished video, nice. Some of the scenes could have used a bit more color correction but over all it was cool.

    • Keith H.

      Agreed! If I had the time I definitely would have but I had hours of footage from many cameras to edit!

    Outstanding! Keith picked a superb trail for us to follow, the video clips will be a riot and the pple who came out for the day were treated to ample serendipity...a bull, a baboon, a few babies and boys leaping through the air.

    This event couldn't have gone better. Everyone was excited to be there and brought their own creativity to the shooting

    Inspiring, great team spirit. Hope to work with the team again in the future, and tell stories with the GoPro (and other) cameras.
