"Composition must be one of our constant preoccupations, but at the moment of shooting it can stem only from our intuition, for we are out to capture the fugitive moment, and all the interrelationships involved are on the move." - Henri Cartier-Bresson
With the return of Spring comes non-stop festival season in New York City! So many photographic opportunities! Every year I look forward to photographing the Coney Island Mermaid Parade and the Gay Pride Parade to name a few. As well, the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg will be back outside in Williamsburg again soon!
I specialize in photo tours in all 5 boroughs in New York City including off the beaten track tours to Coney Island, Dumbo, Harlem, Long Island City and Williamsburg to name a few. I have also recently added NYC Subway art tours to the list of tours that I provide.

As a woman photographer, I am often asked if there is a difference between photography produced by women and men? And why photography is still very much dominated by men? Historically, many male photographers approached photography as a source of income. While female photographers focused on photography as a process of creation. Take Vivian Maier as an example. Clearly she was a talented photographer. Yet she made very little attempt to share her work with others. The fact that we know her photography is pure luck.
That said, we are living in very different times and women are still underrepresented in mainstream photography, in galleries and museums. Whether there is a difference between the photography of women and men is perhaps worthy of a lengthy thesis. But there is no doubt that when it comes to quality and worthiness, the two are equals, So why is there such an imbalance, that is a question that needs to be addressed!
