Reviews on Leanne Staples' Shoot New York City Photo Tours.

Review by Lorrie, Virginia

"The BEST way to tour Brooklyn and Dumbo - My daughter and I had a fabulous time with Leanne. She was kind enough to meet us at our hotel and we hopped on the subway for the Brooklyn photography tour. She was very patient with us while we took an insane amount of photos (did I mention my daughter is 16?) and she gave us suggestions and tips as well. We saw things we never would have seen wandering around on our own, and had lunch at a great little Mexican restaurant. Then a few days after the tour, she e-mailed me the photos she took while we were wandering around. If you're looking for a tour that with some history of NY, great photography tips, and visits to some fabulous photo opportunities, this is definitely the tour for you." - Lorrie, Virginia

"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.

"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

"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.

"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.

"Bushwick Street Art Tour - The Bushwick Street Art photo tour was wonderful! This is my second tour with Leanne and she is very knowledgeable about photography and the neighborhoods where she tours. She shows you different photo techniques and is able to explain the neighborhood environments. The tour is a worth while experience!" - Fred, Albany, New York.

"Bushwick Street Art Tour. Loved my experience with Leanne! It was an awesome tour and I got to meet Fred, who was the most wonderful man. We took a tour around Bushwick, got some great shots, stopped for coffee! This is a must, if you're in New York and want to see a different side of the city!" - Muna, San Antonio, Texas.

"NYC Street Art Learning Motion Photography with Leanne. I'm a big fan - of both photographing street art and of Leanne. I have seen Street art around the world, from London to Brazil and around the US. Leanne showed spotted new murals I'd missed before and taught me some cool new approaches - especially around capturing motion in photographs. I had fun and look forward to my next tour with her." - Sherief, New York City.

"Fantastic and informative day photographing the city! I recently took one of Leanne's NYC street photography courses and I can't say enough about Leanne and the class! Our group spent the day shooting a variety of unique locations in the neighborhoods of El Barrio and Harlem, and the instruction and insight provided was well worth the price of admission. Leanne was great at tailoring guidance to photographers of all levels all the while offering personal insights on the locations and venues we shot. In addition, it was simply a fun way to spend the day in NYC. I came away with newly-discovered and applied knowledge of street photography techniques and made some new international friends and contacts at the same time. I highly recommend taking one of Leanne's street photography courses if you have the chance!" - Jamie, Philadelphia, PA.

Review by Emma, Perth, Australia

"Great guide to the "locals" New York. Leanne was a fantastic tour guide, she catered to all of our needs and made the tour very enjoyable. We came with 16 students and only a few were actually interested in photography - however, every single student came away raving about the tour and loved the experience. Leanne met us at a convenient location and then took us to Chinatown. We explored the non-touristy parts of the location and were given great subjects and locations to shoot. Our students also had great fun acting as models and shooting on site. We will definitely do this again on our next tour to New York." - Emma, Perth, Australia - class trip, April 2017.
