Last month I traveled to New York City for Bethany and Stefan’s engagement session and while I was there I spent a lot of time exploring the city and shooting street photos. New York is one of my favorite cities, if not my top favorite. Back in the day I lived there for awhile and fell in love with everything about it, so I never miss a chance to visit. In general, I’m a very savvy, some might call it frugal, traveler, but I ended up staying right in Times Square for dirt cheap (by NYC standards) which is a great place to photograph tourist and street performers. I spent a lot of time in that area during the early mornings and really late nights.
During the middle of the day I traveled a lot around different parts of the city mostly by train. I’m a little obsessed with fitness tracking on the Apple Watch, so I would often walk long stretches though key areas like Central Park to take advantage of different locations on my way to my main destination and to log exercise. I actually averaged about sixteen miles a day! Of course the trains are awesome for street photos and unusual situations as well. I also made some personal day trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Tom’s Restaurant, the inspiration for the diner featured in Seinfeld. Some of my favorite locations in Manhattan to photograph are the Times Square area, Chinatown during the day, the Financial District during the week when people are going to or coming from work, and the lower east side. This time around I didn’t really venture into the other boroughs, but The Bronx and Brooklyn are on my list for next time. Here are some of my favorite photos from my trip.My name is Matt Druin and I’m an Atlanta wedding photographer that specializes in unique, offbeat weddings for all awesome people!
