A very nice experience. If you want to see New York City with the guidance of a photographer, then go on one of Leanne’s tours! Only she will explain the necessary tips to take great photos and its advantage Is that it she knows NYC as a person who lives here. She’ll tell you the stories of John Lennon and the store that dressed people like the Sex Pistols. Where lived Andy Warhol before being known and it moves from anecdote to anecdote and the NYC that is more than the eye can see! I am looking forward to returning and taking another tour with her!

We barely managed to catch our breaths from our most recent Harlem photography walking tour, a truly eye-opening for both the point-and-shoot novice and the experienced photographer.
Leanne took us on a visual enlightening tour to some of the most interesting and exciting locations in Harlem, showing us different aspects and angles of Harlem which we never knew existed and never would have found on our own.
Leanne shared a lot of her knowledge, by explaining to us powerful street photography techniques, discussing ethics of street photography, approaching strangers for street portraits as well as dealing with difficult situations that might pop up.
We defined strategies for capturing the rich daily life of people on the street and selected spots with a lot of foot traffic with an interesting background and waited for people to come to us. The subjects entered our 'space '. In this way we felt much more comfortable photographing them.
All levels of photographic experience can benefit from Leanne's NYC walking photo tours, a great way of learning more about photography while enjoying the sights and sounds of Harlem.
We highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to New York. - Luc, Patricia & Leonor, Cairo & Lisbon

"After googling the internet, I signed up with Leanne after reading several of her reviews. I will rate my experience as 5 star. I really liked her professional, easy-going approach. She questioned me before we ever met to get a sense of my photographic style and interest. Once I was there, she took me to several locations that had great places to see and photograph. During the tour she gave me excellent tips on what I wanted to learn more about regarding my process. Leanne has the knowledge and experience to help you get the most out of your photographic tour. I will certainly use her again on my next trip to NYC!" - Gary, Houston,Texas

"After spending a day with Leanne exploring Harlem, Coney Island, and Brighton Beach, I can highly recommend her as a guide with whom you can authentically explore the multitude of faces that, together, make up New York City. Leanne is a talented street photography who has an easy way of imparting her knowledge of the city surrounds and the art of photography. All in all a highly enjoyable way to spend the day!" - Catherine, New Zealand

Leanne Staples is primarily a urban photographer, artist and writer. She was given her first camera at the age of 12 by her father. For many years her concentration was mainly as an architectural photographer. It was, as she has said, "an obsessive pursuit for an unreal purity." One day, after being annoyed by people walking into her shot, she decided not to fight it anymore, to shoot people passing by the buildings. Without knowing it, that began her venture into street photography!
She started out in film and after some skepticism about digital, she finally made the transition in 2006. A self-described gonzo photog, you can find her on the streets with camera in hand searching for the perfect backdrop in which to shoot. A few things that she is always seeking out are shadows, reflections, patterns, motion blur, clouds, graffiti, interesting people and of course architecture.

I could name about 100+ people who inspire me. It's just too many, so I'm going to do something slightly different here. here's the beginning of my favorite photog list. It is a work in progress.
"1976: I had been going out with this girl for a couple of months kinda scene-makin photog-lolligagin around Detroit. She'd decided I was a fag since one nite in Oct/Nov thereabouts at a Barry White concert when we'z sittin behind Ohio Players, the world's worst opening act, and she sez, re the bass player, "He's got a nice ass" and I sat up a bit to look and she gave me a weird stare and that was that. So anyway me and this snope-lobe keep a-datin', but no sex. I was clumsy and shy and she, well, I guess her cameras woulda got in the way."
