There’s many photography tours out there but only this one will offer a real alternative perspective away from the tourist clichés. I will take insta-worthy portraits of you (with my professional DSLR camera or with your phone) in locations throughout Williamsburg, the capital of Brooklyn cool Along the way, I will show you classic spots that I have come to know and love after 5 years in New York, far from the crowded streets of Midtown and tourist traps of Manhattan. We'll start our classic Brooklyn photo session in along the river, in the new Domino park, the site of an abandoned sugar factory, with beautiful views of Manhattan. We will walk along the river and take pictures along the graffiti lined streets as I tell you a little bit about the history of the surrounding neighborhood. Many of the pictures will have a unique urban/industrial look that would be difficult to get anywhere else in New York! We will choose 10-15 of the best photos and I will edit and send back your Instagram-quality Brooklyn portraits within 3 days so you can have great memories of your trip to New York. We can also customize the tour to add more locations around Brooklyn if there are specific places you would like to go. Message me and we can tailor a special route for you! Thank you for considering my experience and I’m so excited to meet you :)
I am the Deputy Editor and Photographer for Chaos+Comrades, a Brooklyn-based magazine for young urbanites. I have previously photographed for Time Out Magazine and was a Hearst Multimedia Journalism finalist for a series of portraits I took of young, queer college students living in the East Village. I have lived in New York for five years and love showing people the true young spirit of the city. I started taking portraits of my friends 4 years ago and fell in love with portraiture. I hope that we are able to have some fun times together and thank you for considering my experience!
I will bring my DSLR camera for all the pictures
We will meet in Williamsburg, the "hip" capital of Brooklyn! We will walk to Domino Park, a new area with beautiful views of Manhattan and the former site of an abandoned sugar factory. We will explore Williamsburg by foot and take unique urban photographs in front of different art instillations and murals. Along the way, I'll give you a bit of history of the surrounding area- I hope you enjoy your time in my part of the city!
