Review by Drew, Saskatoon, Canada

“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. Derby Day

Harlem 125th Street

125th Street is one of the main streets in Harlem. It’s a fabulous neighborhood. It’s great for street photography and the people are friendly. New Yorkers are often so distracted with their digital devices and getting to where they’re going that they often don’t even notice you taking their photo. When they do notice, they’re usually happy. If you want to explore Harlem with a camera and do street photography, I have a workshop coming up on 4 June and you can register for it online here. You can also schedule a photo tour of Harlem if you prefer a one-on-one approach. – Photo, Harlem 125th Street, 23 May 2017, on photo tour. 125th Street-2

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.
