I took this photo on 14 March 2020. It was my last street photography workshop before the isolate in place orders were put into place. I look forward to the day when we can go back and shoot on the streets and I am happy that so many people are purchasing gift certificates for when that day arrives.
Brighton Beach, Brooklyn is a very cool neighborhood. It’s fabulous for street photography and it doesn’t look like any other neighborhood. You can still register for the upcoming workshop there on Saturday 28 March. No matter your level of experience. And we always have fun!
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
There are so many different styles and methods of shooting street photography. We explore many of them in my street photography workshops.
I recently hosted a group street photography workshop in Harlem. Even though it rained for most of the workshop, we had a great time and got some great photos. I offer private street photography workshops in Harlem all year around.
I like to take my time when shooting street photography. If I see a background that I like, I wait for people to enter it. Slow photography is something that we often do in group workshops and even more often in private workshops.
There are some things that can’t be planned ahead of time. But when you have fabulous afternoon light with amazing shadows, don’t keep walking. Stop and shoot! This photo was taken during a recent private street photo workshop. I offer both group and private workshops.
This photo was taken during a recent street photography workshop in Soho. The winter light just drew us in to take photos here. We always find interesting street shots that can’t be planned ahead on workshops.
I often include graffiti in my street photography as it is so evident everywhere. Graffiti is rather like hieroglyphics, it is a language unto itself and it reflects the times. This photo was taken during a private street photography workshop in the East Village. On the right edge of the photo is one of many pieces done by Mosaic Man.
Monochrome is a real favorite in street photography. This photo was taken during a private street photography workshop in the East Village.
