It's not surprising that many of the tours I do are for #streetphotography. Often the people who take my tours live in places where it's difficult to do street photography. For others, #NewYorkCity is a street photographer's dream. Chinatown is a favorite for shooting street as it hasn't been gentrified, providing the possibility of timeless photos. They could be of any decade. High season is closer than you think. No matter your degree of experience shooting street or with photography you can book your tour of any of the 5 boroughs with me here. Happy Shooting! www.shootnewyorkcity.com #phototour

I am so fortunate in my business to meet so many amazing people from around the world and to be able to become friends with them. I gave +Brigitte Bourger  a photo tour of New York City in June of last year and started giving her online Composition and the Art of Photography classes last fall. She lives in Tahiti and is currently working on a series of beautiful photos of surfers. I am happy to count her as a friend. She is just one of many friends that I have made through giving tours and classes.

Yes, I do photo tours in winter!!! "I found Leanne through her social media
sites where she contributed some really great shots from New York. We
decided to go to Coney Island, where we met these crazy polar bear folks
and walked around Coney Island. She knows the place really well and was
able to show us some great spots and tell us some wonderful stories about
the neighborhood. Leanne is a perfect companion for a walk and talk through...

Review by Mark, Salt Lake City, Utah (photo by Mark) - After I decided to spend a week in New York City, mainly for photography and particularly for street photography, I realized I needed a guide.  While I am familiar with the usual parts of the city, I wanted to visit places I couldn’t know about without having the time, months and years really, to explore the city.  I started to search the web starting with New York photography workshops and then New York photography guides.  In the process, I discovered I could photograph the city from a helicopter with open windows.  That would be a fabulous experience but it was excessively expensive.  I must say, though, the video distracted me for more than several minutes.  Then, I found Leanne’s website.

While I was looking for someone to steer me around out of the way places, what caught my immediate attention was her photographs.  Almost every one of her photographs was one I would have been happy to call my own.  Eventually, I started looking at the services she offered, her photo trips and her on line classes.  I decided to do both and each was a great experience.

I hoped to primarily work with Leanne on street photography in the weekly 30 minute on line classes.  While we did work on that, Salt Lake City doesn’t lend itself well to street photography.  It’s here, but it isn’t easy to find.  As a typical mall centered city, people aren’t on the streets all that much.  But, I did find opportunities and found Leanne’s feedback and comments to be very valuable.  Interestingly, her positive responses to another area of work I do proved to be even more valuable.  This year I’ve been working on photographing shadow pattern I come across.  I’ve rendered them using very high contract and solarization.  Leanne reacted very positively and encouraged me to pursue that direction further.  Given that my family and friends can be a little puzzled by these images, Leanne’s support was very gratifying.  And the outcome of that support was my decision to approach one of Salt Lake’s most established art galleries with a set of six of these photographs.  They were accepted for their winter show beginning next week.  Three to six of these 12″ by 12″ prints will be hung for the season.  I can’t expect that any of them will be purchased.  I’m simply enjoying the acknowledgement that there are people in the art community who appreciate my work.  I really don’t think this would have happened without Leanne’s encouragement.

After the classes, I went to New York and met Leanne 3 times for 4 hour photowalks.  We did one on the Lower East Side and into Chinatown, one in the Williamsburg section to Brooklyn and then the last one in Spanish Harlem after school on Halloween.  I am absolutely certain most of the shots to took over the course of those 12 hours would never have been made if I’d been on my own.  I might have wandered across some of them, of course.  But, it’s a very big city and personal exploration would have been far more random.  And, I do know how unlikely it is that I would have gone to Harlem without someone to show me the ropes.  Leanne did that and the entire experience was great fun.  And, I might add, Leanne is a great companion who brings her own enthusiasm for urban/street photography to each experience as she finds her own photographs.

One of the ideas Leanne suggested was to find an idea or theme or location or background as a way to add a layer of coherency and organization to the chaos of the street.  This was a new idea for me and added an additional challenge to the experience but it served to sharpen my focus through to course of the entire week I was in the city, not just when I was with Leanne.  The result was the idea of photographing people in repose while coupling it to the action and energy of the city.  I have some images I like and they would not have even been considered if not for Leanne’s guidance.  I’ll be looking for opportunities to pursue this idea in the future.  And, for me, the future holds at least one more possible walk with Leanne.  Her photographs of the Coney Island Mermaid Parade captured my immediate attention when I first visited her website.  I hope to be there with her in 2015.  I know I would have never known this parade even existed if not for her.  Thank you, Leanne.  I’ll see you there next summer. - Mark, Salt Lake City, Utah

"I have been shooting street photography for almost two years. It's been a long process, with lots of reading and following some established photographers. That's where Leanne Staples comes in. I decided to take a photo tour in the Harlem with her guidance. It proved a wise decision. Leanne is a knowledgeable person -- not restricted to the art of photography --, making for an enjoyable tour. On photography, which is really what brings us here, I can only say that I would have missed quite a few details of the Harlem without her tips in the tour. One can sense her photographic thought and use it to one's benefit; I felt that I changed my photographic approach to capture defining characteristics of the place. She will also break the ice with some "locals", which helps embed oneself in the place." - Alvaro, Lisbon, Portugal

New York City has some very beautiful architecture. One of my favorite buildings is The Chrysler Building. It was the tallest building in the world for a few short months in 1930 until The Empire State Building was completed. It is still the tallest brick building in the world with a steel skeleton. NYC has many iconic buildings. It also has some very nice architecture that is less well known. My tours include urban landscapes and/or street photography.

Whether you want to take a photo tour off the beaten path or capture iconic New York City, I create a tour that is designed around what you would like to capture. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is just one possibility. And Dumbo (down under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is a great place to take iconic photographs of NYC.

We were headed to New York for a weekend, wanted to do a Photo tour and an associate recommended Leanne.  Good recommendation, we contacted her and found her most accommodating.  We were given choices of times and places that fit our needs, she picked us up at the hotel and arranged the tour so we ended up where we needed to be for our next stop.   Communication was timely both through email and phone and best of all she took us places we would never have found on our own.  We chose Chinatown and got some great shots.  (You can see them on BearBytes.photography if you are interested) and even gave us suggestions for fillers for the next morning.
 
All in all, a very memorable and rewarding experience. Job well done, Thanks. Barrie and Marilee

On a recent Mother-Daughter weekend to NYC we went on Leanne’s ‪photography‬ ‪tour Leanne took special interest in the places we wanted to see and type of pictures we wanted. First she took us on the High Line, then into Chelsea Market, and then into nearby neighborhoods. She pointed out hidden gems, cobblestone streets, and architectural discoveries that we would have never seen without her. She let us take as much or as little time wherever we went so we could get what we wanted. The helpful photo tips and camera tricks that Leanne shared definitely improved our pictures. We feel very lucky to have found Leanne and hope to have many more tours with her.

New York City has approximately 500,000 tourists on any given day. There are of course, high seasons. But not everyone can or wants to be here during those times. Either way, my tours continue all year round. Typical tours are 4 or 5 hours. But I also have many that are 8-10 hours or even 3 days!

"We had the pleasure to take a #brooklyn   (Coney Island and Brighton Beach) #tour   with Leanne.  She  is very passionate about #photography   and her enthusiasm made it a great day. We are experienced with photography; even with experience, our pictures were greatly enhanced by Leanne's ability to find the spot and see the moment. She makes it easy to find inspiration. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to take unique images in cool spots around the New York City."

Meeting Leanne on my first visit to New York in nearly 20 years was a huge stroke of luck!  I had googled "photo tours New York" and she appeared...after looking briefly at her portfolio I was quickly convinced she had the right "eye" for what I was looking for in a photo tour of New York.  She encouraged me to have the confidence to look beneath the surface and grab the essence of whet New York IS.. Although it was raining we wandered and captured the essence of a rainy New York morning. She was a delight to be with and came up with easy suggestions to get fab pics.   New York can feel overwhelming to a photographer who wants to try to capture the heart of it, however Leanne made it all feel attainable in just a morning..I left her with a confidence to just walk the streets and look through my eyes and see it unfold before me. Highly recommended!

It's official, I have a new website just for my New York City Photo Tours! You can see it at www.shootnewyorkcity.com and there is also a link at www.leannestaples.com After much thought and a little help from a good friend, I realized that separating my photography and art from my photo tours makes sense. I have also done some improvements to this site. I hope that you enjoy it! Thanks!

Recently, I took a group of photographers from France on a street photography tour in Harlem. We had a wonderful time and it was the first time that many of them had tried street photography. Martine is on the left in the photo shown here. Je parle en Francais un peu. My tours are for beginners and advanced photographers as well as street and/or urban landscapes.

A recent review of my tours. " Recently my wife and I hired Leanne for two days to guide us around the Neighbourhoods of New York, in particular to assist us in our photographic opportunities and to show us around. To say it was a successful time would be an understatement, it was fantastic. Leanne's personality made us comfortable from our first meeting and it just got better from there. She pointed out many shot opportunities that we would not have spotted and many will end up in my trip book, including introducing you to New Yorks finest and photos with.

It was two fun filled and informative days and we grew to regards Leanne as a friend, if you are looking for a great guide who will introduce you to the real New York and improve your photos then look no further. . . . . highly recommend Leanne, she is totally flexible to work with your requirements and objectives. Be warned thou you will walk a long way....LOL" Brian and Sue, Australia.
