Jeff FadellinI want to echo all of the previous praise heaped upon Lane Nevares. Two words keep reoccurring in reviews: 'Knowledgeable' and 'Generous' I couldn't agree more. I had a wonderful time, saw terrific photography and got background on not only the art and artists, but also on the galleries and the neighborhood. Lane was personable, insightful, and funny. Thanks again Lane! Jeff
Nancy peetAbsolutely recommend this tour! Lane's extensive knowledge of photography is matched only by his enthusiasm for, and love of, his subject. He is a gracious and wonderfully personable guide to the NY scene. His intelligent and patient guidance made my tour a most enjoyable and beneficial experience. His humor and integrity also enhanced the experience. Couldn't have had a more fun introduction! Nina Peet
Manuel FihmanThis was a really enlightening experience. We got to see so many different photographers' work, the contrast was astounding sometimes. Lane is very knowledgeable and really very generous with his time. He went well above the call of duty, as it were. A real pleasure.

Sarah KanadyLane did a great job of taking us to a wide variety of photography exhibitions and I really enjoyed beginning the tour on the highline! I would definitely recommend this for anyone interested in photography, regardless of your background on the subject.
Yasmin DalisayI enjoyed this tour very much. Lane was incredibly knowledgable about photography, and at the same time he was also very approachable and down-to-earth about answering questions. I had a great time and saw some wonderful photography while also learning about how to look at and think about art. We also had some interesting conversations with gallery owners about the work on exhibit. This tour is the perfect way to check out the best fine art photography that is showing at the moment. This tour would be great for New Yorkers and visitors alike.
tpal818 UserTen minutes into this tour you'll feel like an fine art insider as Lane introduces you to gallery owners, offers insight as to why one artist's work is popping at the moment and takes you off the beaten path of galleries to explore territory worthy of your time. Unexpected surprises abound (we bumped into one photographer who talked to us privately about the inspiration behind his series on display) and Lane makes sure the pace of the tour is perfectly timed. This tour is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
Phoebe GavinI didn't know much about fine art photography before this tour, but Lane was so knowledgeable! I learned a ton about it just the few hours we were together. Even though others on the tour were collectors, I didn't feel self conscious or out of place. The weather wasn't ideal but we spent most of the time inside anyway. I'll definite do it again!
