When I see an amazing person on the street I can’t resist taking their photo. The majority of the time they are candid photos. On occasion I will later ask someone if I can take their photo. Usually I prefer the candid. But asking to take their photo means I can converse with them. We typically meet people on the street in my workshops and tours.
El Barrio is such a cool neighborhood. You can still register for the street photography workshop in El Barrio on Sunday 16 July! Explore East Harlem with a camera and learn about the neighborhood and about street photography! “We did Harlem and El Barrio which was an amazing experience. Street photography challenged me – in a good way – but I’m now hooked!!” Summertime and the living is easy, 26 June 2017.
“Leanne’s tour was a lot of fun! She keeps the groups small so as not to be too imposing and unmanageable. The El Barrio photo tour was particularly good as it takes you to a neighbourhood full of warm people that might otherwise be overlooked by visitors to New York.” – Excerpt of a review of an El Barrio Street Photography Workshop. The next workshop in El Barrio is on Sunday 16 July and there are a few spaces still available.

New York City is filled with characters! If you standstill long enough they just appears. Street photography is a gas! It’s about discovering the people who inhabit this space which is often crowded. New York City brings something out in people.
