Betsy Pinover Schiff speaks on the subject of New York City’s diverse and extraordinary gardens, having photographed more than 300, both public and private, for her books and for clients. Her most recent topic is New York City Gardens: Rooftops to Sidewalks. She often adds amusing anecdotes and welcomes questions in the Q&A about garden and landscape photography.
Betsy’s diverse speaking engagements have included a Patron’s dinner of The New York Botanical Garden, a national dinner of the Garden Club of America, The Colony Club, NYC, The Philadelphia Flower Show, the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons, and garden clubs throughout Metropolitan NY, Connecticut, New Jersey, and beyond.*
“Betsy is a consummate professional and sought-after photographer. She has walked the sidewalks of New York and gained access to many private gardens to inform her six books and her beautiful power point presentation. She peppers her presentation with information on the owners of the gardens and/or the organizations responsible for them. She is an excellent fit for those clubs who want to improve their members’ photographic knowledge and/or to have an entertaining and informative program.
