On the Telephone

I saw this man with a hat walking in front of me. He ducked into the doorway and I walked past him, turned around and captured this shot. There was something about the way he dressed and moved that I decided he looked like a spy. Just like in the movies. I knew I was going to turn around to get the shot which meant that I had the opportunity to quickly make certain that my camera settings were good. Oh this was taken during a street photography tour.

People On the Streets

I never get bored of shooting street photography in New York City! I managed to capture a shot of this man all dressed up while providing a photo tour in Midtown, Manhattan. We always have fun shooting the streets. Are you ready to take the next step to beginning or improving your street photography? Look no further. You will find information on my site about private photo tours and group street photography workshops. You can make it a New Year’s resolution!

Happy New Year From NYC!

Yes, the new year is now upon us. What are you planning to do in the new year? I am always planning to up my photography skills and to share what I know through my experiences with others. I would like to think that I am always working to provide encouragement to the people who take my street photography workshops and private photo tours. Is improving your photography a new year’s resolution for you? Have a look at my website. Perhaps I can be of assistance. Happy New Year!

Coney Island Polar Bear Swim

If you’re looking for something fun to do on New Year’s Day, you can see the Annual Coney Island Polar Bear Swim. I have photographed it 3 years in a row. I’m not certain at the time of writing this if I’ll go this year as well. It is a big party! If you can’t make it on January 1st you can view them swimming every Sunday from November through April. It isn’t as festive. Either way it’s fabulous to photograph. This photo was taken in 2011.

It’s fun to work with repetitive patterns in street photography compositions especially when the person that you capture in the frame somehow matches the background. This photo was taken during a street photography workshop in Midtown Manhattan. We spent awhile hanging out and shooting here. There are so many methods and styles for capturing street photography and this is just one of the styles that we work with during a street photography workshop.
