Review by Lorrie, Virginia

“The BEST way to tour Brooklyn and Dumbo – My daughter and I had a fabulous time with Leanne. She was kind enough to meet us at our hotel and we hopped on the subway for the Brooklyn photography tour. She was very patient with us while we took an insane amount of photos (did I mention my daughter is 16?) and she gave us suggestions and tips as well. We saw things we never would have seen wandering around on our own, and had lunch at a great little Mexican restaurant. Then a few days after the tour, she e-mailed me the photos she took while we were wandering around. If you’re looking for a tour that with some history of NY, great photography tips, and visits to some fabulous photo opportunities, this is definitely the tour for you.” – Lorrie, Virginia https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/6/5/review-by-lorrie-virginia-1

“New York Experience with Leanne Staples. I recently returned to NYC and did my second photo tour with Leanne. I have been to NYC many times but Leanne has it down when it comes to finding the spots most visitors miss. I have been able to capture images of the city, people and architecture with her guidance that are priceless !! I look forward to my next trip to NYC and my next tour with Leanne.” – Gary, Houston, Texas. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/6/4/review-by-gary-houston-texas

“Best way to see Harlem. I got this photo tour for my birthday during my visit to NYC and my girlfriend and I had an amazing time with Leanne. She really does combine her street photography skills with her local knowledge and great insights to give you a great tour of the cities coolest neighborhoods. We had the chance to see Harlem and El Barrio, we learned a lot about the area and got some great shots the whole day. I would recommend this to anyone interested on photography and in local urban culture.” – Enrique, Vienna, Austria https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/6/4/review-by-enrique-vienna-austria

Harlem 125th Street

125th Street is one of the main streets in Harlem. It’s a fabulous neighborhood. It’s great for street photography and the people are friendly. New Yorkers are often so distracted with their digital devices and getting to where they’re going that they often don’t even notice you taking their photo. When they do notice, they’re usually happy. If you want to explore Harlem with a camera and do street photography, I have a workshop coming up on 4 June and you can register for it online here. You can also schedule a photo tour of Harlem if you prefer a one-on-one approach. – Photo, Harlem 125th Street, 23 May 2017, on photo tour. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/blog/2017/5/24/harlem-125th-streetHarlem 125th Street-2
