We had a wonderful time in NYC and the photo tour made it unique. So we can take home not only beautiful (professional) pictures but also great stories. 📸😃

Had a great and very special experience with Abdiel. Would ALWAYS recommend him for photo experience in NYC. He was very kind and made us felt every minute welcome. If you book Abdiel you make definitely the right deal. P.S.: I’m not his brother, cousin or something else. This is my real opinion.

Abdiel was great!! He was very patient and informative. He had great stories and took his time showing us how to compose the shots and helping us adjust until we got the good ones. It felt more like friends exploring the city than a tour and photo workshops. It was a great way to see the city and work on my skills.

I highly recommend this tour with Abdiel. He is a very friendly and openminded guy and it was such a fun being with him. He had shown me fantastic photospots I would not have found by myself. Having a look at my pictures after the tour I cannot believe I took them. The tips of Abdiel made them looking so good! Go and do the tour with him: He is the best!

Abdiel was a great host. He shared very nice insights about photography, both artistic and technical. He has a strong connection with the city and made me feel the New York atmosphere, and guided me to capturing the essence of the city in my pictures. I do recommend this experience or another photography experience Tha he may organize, as he is a very friendly, knowledgeable and committed professional.
