About

PhotoTrek Tours was founded in 2003 by native New Yorker Marc Samuels.  From a young age, Marc expressed an interest in photography that he has continued throughout the years.  In his early years, Marc was known to carry around his Minolta X-700 film camera capturing as many memories and scenic photos as possible.

Marc briefly worked in international trading and his employer would often ask him to entertain out-of-town guests, often from overseas.    He would invariably take his camera,  snapping photos of the people he was assigned to entertain.  While doing so, also providing an insightful tour of NYC.

It was at that time Marc had a “lightbulb moment.”   Having traveled extensively himself, often overseas, he realized there was a need for a local guide to double as a photographer capturing people together, in their own photos, while providing an insightful tour.  The year was 2003, the early stages of digital photography when PhotoTrek Tours was created.

To date, with a team of guides & photographers, PhotoTrek Tours has captured memories for thousands of guests from dozens of countries.   Our photos are certainly hanging on walls throughout the world.

We hope you will be our next guests to showcase NYC and capture wonderful photo memories.
