  • Learn tips for photographing architecture at iconic landmarks like Grand Central Terminal, the Brooklyn Bridge, or the Empire State Building.
  • Practice photography tricks of the trade under the instruction of a professional photographer tour guide.
  • Capture the illuminated sights of Central Park after dark on a nighttime photo tour.
  • Admire cobblestone streets and cast-iron building features as you wander the visually rich neighborhood of SoHo on a photography-themed excursion.
  • Let a personal photographer capture the perfect image of you and a partner as you explore New York's most iconic sights.

Photo Shoot Tours with a Personal Photographer
Become the star of a New York City photo shoot on an excursion featuring your very own personal photographer. These customizable walking tours make it easy for you to relax and simply enjoy the scenery as your expert photographer companion snaps perfectly composed images of you. Most personal photographer tours explore Central Park, though more open-ended walking tours are available.
