That Was Before was taken in September 2019 before everything changed. We can hope that one day it will return to some kind of normal. It will never be the same. You can see some of my abstract street photography on my site.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all of my workshops and tours have been temporarily postponed. This is my primary source of income and I continue to sell gift certificates for when life continues as normal.
Be safe and take some extra time to enjoy some photography or art! We can still hope and perhaps daydream.
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
Minimalism is great when you can capture. In my street photography workshops we work with what’s available. No experience necessary and even experienced photographers can gain.
Oh there are so many different kinds of photography you can do! Why limit yourself? I provide private abstract street photography workshops on a regular basis and I will probably create a group workshop in the spring.
Monochrome is a real favorite in street photography. This photo was taken during a private street photography workshop in the East Village.
The next street photography workshop in Chinatown will be on Sunday 9 February. There are a few spaces still available. And by the way, the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations will be going on then.
