"I started looking for a photo walk and came across reviews and website for Leanne.  I contact her about upcoming tours and signed up for her East Harlem walk.  The 3 hour tour, filled with great advice from a professional photographer as well as interesting facts about the neighborhood, was a highlight of my weekend. Normally I would not do a photo shoot in Harlem so it was interesting to get her perspective and visit a new area of the city.  

She not only gave photography hints and tips, but she also offered personal conversation and anecdotes. If you're visiting NYC or you're a native New Yorker and would like to see and photograph the city in ways you might not think possible, book one of Leanne's tours.  I will definitely sign up for another." - Keith, Brooklyn

Last week I had the pleasure of giving 2 tours to a woman from New Zealand and a full day tour to a man from Australia and a street photography tour to a man from New York City. It's so wonderful to meet people from around the world and even people from this city that I might not normally get to meet. I get to share my love and knowledge of this city with them and they share some of their experiences with me. Oh, and I tailor my tours to suit your interests. For more information go to my website http://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/tours/coney-island-and-little-odessa-tour #NewYorkCity #photography #tours #walking

She certainly did not disappoint! We had a fabulous day pounding the
pavements (make sure you wear comfortable shoes!) ;-) with a wonderful
guide, who was also good company! Not only did we learn about the
neighbourhoods as we wondered but amazing photo opportunities kept
presenting themselves and I have some great shots to show for it.

When I give a tour of the city I also make suggestions of other things you might want to check out here based on your interests. There's some much to do here and it's easy to miss the hidden charm and a number of the independent businesses. My suggestion is get off the beaten track and see the real New York City!
#NewYorkCity #tours #photography
http://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/nyc-visitors-guide/ditch-the-tour-books

Ditch the Tour Books

Ditch the tour books! Seriously, tour books don’t direct you to the Real
New York. You will end up going to all the places that other tourists go
to! That’s my opinion of course. To experience the Real New York, I suggest
going to independent stores, restaurants and cafés. They are owned and run
by real New Yorkers and they care about you and the money you spend there!

There are so many distinctly different neighborhoods in New York City! How do you even choose where to go and what to see? When my clients book a tour with me, we discuss through email or have a conversation via Skype or Google hangouts to determine their interests and which tour(s) will be the best for them. You can see more about my tours on my site.

When people visit New York City they often see various parts of Manhattan and sadly they rarely stray much farther. Manhattan has some fabulous neighborhoods to see and shoot. But there are 4 other boroughs! Oh, Coney Island! It is great for urban landscapes and street photography. Yes, we have (saltwater) beaches in NYC! You can book a tour off the beaten track with me.

People coming to New York City often have misconceptions of what this city is like and especially the people. Some of the best experiences you can have is meeting real New Yorkers. When you take a tour with me, we will likely talk to a number of New Yorkers. They don't normally bite :-)

It's Coming!!!

The count down to the Coney Island Mermaid Parade in on! It is the 33rd
Annual parade and it will be my 8th year of taking photos of it. I wouldn't
miss it! It's so much fun and a great photographic opportunity. I do photo
tours of it as well. If you're attending, I'll see you there! If not, you
can look forward to seeing my photos of it.

There are many reviews on my site from previous tours. I love this city and providing tours. I am very fortunate to be able to meet people from around the world and share some of the best kept secrets as well as the most beautiful aspects of the city. You can find more reviews and information about my tours on my site.

Review by Margaret, London, England

She certainly did not disappoint! We had a fabulous day pounding the
pavements (make sure you wear comfortable shoes!) ;-) with a wonderful
guide, who was also good company! Not only did we learn about the
neighbourhoods as we wondered but amazing photo opportunities kept
presenting themselves and I have some great shots to show for it.

People take my tours from near and far. Yes, sometimes even New Yorkers take my tours and they experience this city in a different way. You can see reviews, ideas for tours and my New York City Visitors Guide to name a few things on my website.

There's so much to discover in New York City. I spend much of my time when
not giving tours exploring neighborhoods, looking for things that are new.
When you use a tour guide, you get the benefit of their knowledge and
experience of this city.
