The Big Apple is just that -- big! It can be intimidating to someone who's just beginning to shoot the city's streets. Whether one's recently relocated to New York or simply visiting for the weekend, locating the ideal neighborhood for producing street photography aligned with their personal style is a monumental -- if impossible -- task. I'm here to help. I've spent years exploring NYC's every nook and cranny with my camera bag and have produced award-winning street photography because of it. From classic New York street photography to street art to street portraits to geometry-based images or even billboard-spotting, my experience has afforded me the knowledge of which city streets are consistent hotbeds of these streets are a hotbed for specific street styles.
*Bring your own camera; basic working knowledge of your gear expected
Though not a replacement for a street photography workshop intensive (for that, I recommend Eric Kim and the Leica Store's offerings), my guided New York City street photography photo walks will help streamline your time in the city, and, hopefully allow you to make photos you otherwise would be unable to make with a limited knowledge of one of the largest and most-photographed cities in the world!
Let's go make some street photography!
