A very good article on how to collect #art  !!!
 
Love this article!
When art and commerce mix, a certain level of mania is inevitable: it’s what you get when passion and pragmatism collide.

Although I do specialize in photo tours, I also do walking tours for those who just want to explore this great city! As a licensed New York City tour guide, I have a wealth of interesting information to share. Whether it be walking through Times Square and discussing some of its history and marvels or the East Village or the Flatiron District, I can tailor a walking tour around your interests.

It's not surprising that many of the tours I do are for #streetphotography. Often the people who take my tours live in places where it's difficult to do street photography. For others, #NewYorkCity is a street photographer's dream. Chinatown is a favorite for shooting street as it hasn't been gentrified, providing the possibility of timeless photos. They could be of any decade. High season is closer than you think. No matter your degree of experience shooting street or with photography you can book your tour of any of the 5 boroughs with me here. Happy Shooting! www.shootnewyorkcity.com #phototour

Introduction
Photographer, Artist and Writer.
a passionate urban landscape, street, social documentary photographer & artist aka ifotog on the internet
On G+ since July 8, 2011. 


I sell my photos through my website . As well, I have a number of photos and other items available on Etsy, Blurb and Zazzle. If there is a photo that you would like to purchase that isn't available on these sites, let me know. There's a list towards the bottom of this page of most of my social network sites.

I also give private and group lessons in the art of photography, composition, street photography, portfolio review and photowalks. Address inquiries to info@leannestaples.com


• Co-founder of Shoot the Street 

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.


Also known as ifotog on the internet.

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.

In 1979, Lester Bangs wrote an article for The Village Voice about previous New Year's Eve dates. I was his date in 1976. Here is a brief excerpt.

"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."

You can find the entire article in his book Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung.

"Ultimately, Photography is subversive not when it frightens, repels or even stigmatizes, but when it is pensive, when it thinks." - Roland Barthes
