There are so many great neighborhoods to shoot street photography and street art in. Bushwick, Brooklyn is one. I provide photo tours in Bushwick all year round.
New York City has a way of making itself a supporting actor if not the protagonist in street photography. I am quite happy to give credit where credit is due. In my workshops and tours we often focus on this aspect.
There are a few places still available for the abstract street photography workshop on November 24th. No experience necessary and all cameras and lenses are good. It is limited to 5 people. You can register online.
There’s graffiti almost everywhere in NYC. The difference between street art and graffiti is that for the most part street art is sanctioned and graffiti is always illegal. Either way, they can add some color or texture to a photo.
The East Village has always been a favorite neighborhood. It’s great just as a place to hang out as well as for photography. If you’d like to explore the East Village I have photo tours there all year around.
East Harlem also known as El Barrio is so photogenic. I provide private photo tours there all year round.
Dumbo is a cool neighborhood for photography. I provide photo tours to the Brooklyn Bridge/Dumbo area all year round.
