What you'll do

We will walk into vintage coffee shops, speakeasy bars, and onto swanky rooftops as we explore the city. Sometimes we start off at Central Park and walk over to the Upper West Side, gliding through prewar brick apartments clad in neo gothic architecture. Other times, we grab a cup of coffee and head towards the lights of Timesquare. We go with the flow and your mood.
Every intimate moment and experience will be captured and blended into a dreamlike sequence. Let me capture your visit so you can relive it again and again.

P.s This is a group experience. There maybe 1 - 3 other people with you during the shoot. If you have any place suggestions, do message me before the shoot.
Other things to note
My style is a blend of moody light and film.

For the past four years, I have been traveling the world—walking by the canals of Amsterdam and driving through German ghost towns. My phone and digital camera enabled me to capture the essence of my travels. I started with landscapes, and soon my subjects evolved into portraits, capturing emotions, light on faces, and body movements. My goal is to share this experience with people traveling to New York City and give them a memory they can take back home.

Walking through Central park, running among yellow cabs with horse carriages in the background.
Get into a christmas market, and a subway station. Then we walk towards timesquare and rooftop/coffeeshop along the way. It will be spontaneous and there are always surprises!

Shamim was super nice and a great photographer! We walked around a few areas in Central Park & alongside it, and Shamim picked out great photo ops for us. He was very direct, always making sure my chin wasn't facing down too much, and helped direct us how to stand. We just received our photos, and we love all of them! The quality is very good, and we love the photo ops we got! We highly recommend!! Especially because he lives in NY and knows the best spots!

I booked this photo shoot to celebrate my birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Starting with logistics: Shamim offers great pricing and is flexible and accommodating when it comes to scheduling time and location. Additionally, he has a nice response time when you you message him. He is good at honoring his word of getting you your photos within 2-4 business days and had great edits. Shamim is very professional. In terms of the experience: It was really fun! Shamim has a vision and an eye for photography. He knows how to set up capture photos that represent NYC (ex: horse carriage, taxi, backdrop of buildings etc.) and set up fun photos (I took a photo jumping off a bench! He also listens to what you want and allows you to lead and works with your vision as well. I had so much fun and felt like model! If you are on the fence would definitely recommend!
