East Harlem Community Garden

East Harlem is a fabulous neighborhood and there are a number of community gardens there. This photo was taken on a recent photo tour in El Barrio and Harlem. Here’s a snippet of the review from the tour. “Best of all, Leanne helped me to get out of my “shell” and be more daring to take some good street photography snapshots.  Next time I am in New York, I plan to see Leanne again.”

Excerpt from a review on my recent El Barrio Street Photography Workshop. “Leanne guided us to locations for interesting pictures and provided details on composition and camera settings. We ended the long walk with a drink and a nice chat and review in a cool restaurant. This photo walk was a great experience for me (and I think the other four people as well). ” – Leaving Church, 16 July 2017.

Modern Architecture on the Highline

On a photo tour yesterday. We walked the Highline and took photos of modern architecture and also did some street photography as well. “I would highly recommend any tour with Leanne. She’s great from a photographic perspective and her local knowledge is a real bonus and adds to the experience.” An excerpt of her review.

Review by Gary, Houston, Texas

“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

Review by Enrique, Vienna, Austria

“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

“Street Photography with Leanne Staples – I have great hopes of becoming a better photographer than I am. I recently had the pleasure of doing a solo street shoot of Harlem and El Barrio with Leanne. I had a great afternoon and learned a lot about both NYC and street photography. This was an excellent opportunity.” – Drew, Saskatoon, Canada. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/5/25/review-by-drew-saskatoon-canadaHarlem Derby Day

Review by Mary Beth, New York City

“El Barrio Workshop – Excellent workshop! Leanne escorted us around El Barrio, taking us to areas I would never have found on my own. She also gave me lighting tips to help me get the type of shot I was seeking. I’m planning on taking another workshop with her this summer.” – Mary Beth, New York City. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2017/5/23/review-by-mary-beth-new-york-city
