  • 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.
