Learn key photo techniques while privately touring some of the city's most interesting neighborhoods.

If you are an avid photo enthusiast and want to improve your photography while exploring NYC, this tour is for you. YOU choose a neighborhood from the following areas to explore and learn: Chinatown, East Village, West Village, Financial District, Central Park, Soho, the High Line and far west side, Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo. I route a lively path where you can make interesting images and learn how to enhance your photo skills. Concepts like exposure, aperture, depth of field, shutter speeds, and ways of seeing that will improve your photos are the order of the day. I'll show you illustrations of these concepts while we work, so that the theory can be visually understood. You'll learn about in the colorful and surprising local history, and I'll point out places to visit or where you can get great food. Whether you are an advanced shooter or a beginner, I can help you think about better ways to make pictures. My tours are marked by an enthusiasm for teaching, photography, and my love of New York.


It depends on the neighborhood.
For example, in Soho:
Cast iron buildings. Historical background while examining details through photography. Broadway. Prince St. , Grand St. ,
landmark buildings. Old St. Patrick's church; final destination is the intersection of Little Italy and Chinatown.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will either meet you where you're staying or at the location where we'll tour, whichever you chose.

End location: We'll stop at a central place in the neighborhood we've been touring.

Duration: 3 hours

There will be more time to tour if we arrange to meet in the neighborhood of choice, rather than my picking you up.


We'll be doing light walking. If I pick you up at your hotel, we can take the subway ( preferable, especially for photos) or a cab. It's your choice.

What’s Included

We will be walking around a neighborhood or two, of your choice. Just have comfortable shoes on for walking!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 USD - good idea to have some cash on hand for items or purchases of a personal nature.

What’s Extra

You need to bring along a camera.
