Traveling to the US with your cell (read "mobile" Europeans) phone can be a costly exercise. For those without a good bank balance or indeed on some half decent roaming plan, the choice is often to go Wi-Fi only. Alternative is to pay those horrific per day international roaming charges. YUCK !
Thankfully T-Mobile has a great solution.
Visitors to the US (Including New York) taking the T-Mobile Tourist Plan will allow allow anyone with an unlocked phone to get a 3-week all-in plan when visiting for just $30. Which is sweet deal, especially as you can still use the many WiFi hot spots throughout the city in MTA Subway stations and on the street.
For security purposes, T-Mobile say Tourist Kits must be shipped to U.S. addresses. We suggest asking friends, family or hotel management to use their address or we can do that for you, just drop us a chat message and we can bring one along on your shoot.
You can always pop into a store and buy them yourself too.
Petapixel recently posted an article about the "selfie" phenomena. The popularity of the selfie stick has been an odd one, maybe a rise that couldn't be grasped by those in the photography trade as it demonizes everything about photography that we cherish. However a recent report kinda confirms what we already knew about "selfies" in the first place.
The original report (which is rather large) was conducted by a German Physiology journal which can be read here but one section contained the following which is a great way to sum up taking a selfie.
“People taking many selfies themselves tend not to like viewing others’ selfie-pictures, and rather wish for a higher number of usual photos,” the report continues “This expresses a somewhat paradox[ical] situation, where many people are engaged in selfies, but at the same time wish for a reduction of selfies in social media.”
Which is a fancy way is saying not even selfie takers like seeing selfies. That brings us onto why you would use them on vacation when many don't want to see them after their vacation anyway, another great reason to hire NY Tourist Photo !
There is so much to see in NYC, so many places to visit, so many things to do and New York Pass allows you to visit as many places as you want!
Visiting New York City attractions can be pricey, but not for NY Pass holders! No need to skip some Attractions because of the costs or because some Pass says you can visit only 6 - with New York Pass you can visit them all.
Did you know? The total value of attractions available for Pass holders exceeds $2000! That's enough savings for 4 flights to London and back.
Save up to 70% when visiting just 3 attractions a day using The New York Pass, its a super way to see the city at prices you just don't get at the major attractions.
Not only do you get over 90 NY attractions to choose from but card holders skip ticket lines at many of the busiest places. Also included in the pass is Hop-on Hop-off Bus tours which normally retail for prices often more expensive than the price of a single NY Pass.
Be sure to grab a card when you visit NY.
