Waiting

These are very challenging times. My business has come to a screeching halt as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. 85% of my business is tourists who come to New York City. I am currently offering gift certificates for future workshops and tours.

I do hope that you are staying safe and well. We are all waiting. This photo was taken during a street photography workshop in Chinatown in February.

Chanel in Chinatown

This photo is from a Chinatown Street Photography Workshop that I held in February 2020. We had a fabulous time! As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic all of my workshops and tours have been postponed until things get back to normal.

Until then I continue to offer gift certificates to be used at a later date. Thank you to everyone who has already purchased one. It is helping me to manage financially through this challenging time.

This is a photo that I took during a street photography workshop that I held on 29 February 2020. That’s Leap Year! While all my group workshops and private photo tours are postponed due to the Coronavirus, I continue to offer gift certificates for future events. This is an important method for me to continue to have an income during these challenging times. Thank you to everyone who has purchased them. Best wishes, Leanne

Life during Pause

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all of my workshops and tours have been temporarily postponed. This is my primary source of income and I continue to sell gift certificates for when life continues as normal.

In the meantime I have been doing a lot of updating on my website. You can check out my Greenwich Village photo gallery and also the neighborhood guide and think of it as a virtual tour.

Be safe and take some extra time to enjoy some photography or art! We can still hope and perhaps daydream.

Social Distancing

To all my friends and followers, as you may know, I make my living providing group street photography workshops and private photo tours. It is my sole source of income. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed that.

As I am not able to provide these services at the moment as a result of travel restrictions and social distancing, I’ve started to provide gift certificates for workshops and tours with the date to be determined after the pandemic passes.

So far many of my regulars have begun to purchase them and I thank them. I want to let others know about this. Whether the gift is for yourself or someone else, we can still plan for the future.

You can find more information on my site about private tours and group workshops.

Review by Vincenzo, Cambridge, UK

I think that I might very well have the coolest job in the world. Being a licensed NYC Tour Guide and a Street Photographer means I get to meet some amazing people. Below is a review from a recent private street photography workshop in Harlem.

“The deepest New York experience I have had. – The tour of Harlem and El Barrio was a journey in the deepest human side of street photography. Thanks to her, I felt so connected to the local people. I love Leanne’s approach to photography, the way she made me connect with every corner of the streets, with every building, every light and every shadow in such an immediate and spontaneous way.

Meeting Leanne made me feel I have truly met New York in its deepest essence. She is very knowledgeable of the areas we visited and of the history and culture of this wonderful city. I cannot wait to come back again and have a new tour with her. Highly recommended!” Vincenzo, Cambridge, UK
