New Yorkers are so fashionable. I’m not talking about copying what they see in the fashion magazines. No. They have their own unique styles. That is just one of the many things that makes street photography in this city so much fun. If you’re interested in upping your game or you’re just starting out, I have a street photography workshop on 16 March. You can find more information and register online.
Whether you’re a beginner at street photographer or you’ve been doing it for awhile, I always work with everyone on an individual basis and well as as a group. From working on feeling better shooting street to finding new methods to shoot, there’s something for everyone. The next street photography workshop is on 16 March and you can register online and find more information about them.
I had a friend who learned to speak Japanese. He told me that the basics in learning the language are very easy. That provides you with the ability to speak like a 5 year old child. To really learn the language takes more effort. The same can be said about street photography. There’s much to learn and it’s always a moving target in more ways than one. Check out my upcoming workshops. You never learn everything all at once and many people continuously return to take another.
There can be as many as 10 million people in New York City at any given time. It is very possibly the most diverse city in the world. If you stop long enough to look around you will find people from all walks of life and I especially find that often people have their own particular style. If you’re interested in observing and shooting the streets of NYC, I have private photo tours and street photography workshops on my website. There’s something for everyone.
Many of my street photos are in black and white. It is a favorite for street. My guess is that I process about 75% of them in b&w. It is a personal preference. If you’re looking to learn street photography or to advance it, I have regular workshops posted on my website.
Did I mention how much fun shooting street photography is? I quite enjoy it and I especially like meeting people from around the world and providing private photo tours for them. My private tours are often like a one-on-one street photography workshop. Some people are a bit shy and others prefer to shoot one-on-one as they may be inexperienced with street or with their camera. This photo was taken February 2015 during a private street photography workshop. Just choose one of the photo tours or a length of time that you would like to work together.
There are possible photographic opportunities everywhere. The subway stairs lend leading lines to a photo and a sense of moment. I have a street photography workshop coming up on Saturday March 2nd in Chelsea. There are only 2 spaces still available at the time of writing this post. You can register online.
