"My son who is 15 years and a passionate street photographer was keen to explore some street art and take candid shots of New York. Leanne took us to see some wonderful street art in Bushwick, & Williamsburg. Leanne hit the spot and took my son to some wonderful places that we never would have found on our own. Then on a second day we walked the Brooklyn Bridge and explored Dumbo, finishing with a specatular sunset of the Manhattan Skyline. Leanne was friendly and very informative, we would definitely recommend and book Leanne next time we visit NY." - Lee, Sydney, Australia http://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/reviews/2016/10/16/review-by-lee-sydney-australia #Bushwick #streetart #photo #tour #streetphotography #Brooklyn #NewYorkCity

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."
