Leanne was highly organized and knew her locations very well. I had a wonderful day in Little Odessa and Coney Island.

Leanne taught us the right mindset and techniques to get great street photos, and then helped us find good locations. We had not done street photography before, and we learned a ton. We got to see some great parts of NYC that we wouldn't normally go to. Most importantly we had a great time.

We booked an all-day private photo tour with Leanne Staples of Shoot New York City, and it was the best decision we made for our anniversary trip to New York! My spouse and I both enjoy photography and wanted to experience Leanne’s New York. When she asked us what we would like to see/do for the day, we replied “Show us what you love about New York”, and she certainly did! We stayed in Manhattan (next time will be one of the boroughs), and Leanne showed us some novel (to us) ways to photograph familiar landmarks like the Empire State Building. I had wanted to see some street art (murals and “graffiti” and such), and we saw amazing work that we would have totally overlooked on our own. Leanne showed us how to notice opportunities for great pictures, and created fabulous memories for us! The pictures we have are awesome, and we are already discussing when we will go back. And the techniques she showed us have already been used in photographing our hometown. We have a slideshow that we run on our TV, and our family and friends love watching it (not like Grandma’s old slides!) and one couple is planning to go out with her next time they are in NYC. In short, we highly recommend Shoot New York City photo tours!

Great for the new or the seasoned photographer, with or without NYC experience. Our group of four had plenty of photo knowledge and experience and had a diversity of cameras. Street Photography is its own art. I guess like Sports photography, and requires a different eye. Leanne focused on that, getting us to see the opportunity to collect a great photo. She has a wealth of NYC knowledge especially the streets less travelled. We did the East Village area. May do another on the next visit. KBYG: the four hours goes quick. OK to plan a stop part way through. Best to be familiar with your phone camera or personal camera to focus (ha!) on ‘seeing’ the photos that are inobvious.

I spent a great afternoon with Leanne in SoHo last week. This lady knows street photography! I am a landscape photographer so this was completely different type of shooting. I learned how to see differently. There is no shortage of amazing subjects in NYC. Leanne will teach you how to “see” and what to look for. She knows all the best locations to shoot. If you want to come home with a true picture of nyc, this is the workshop for you.
