Denise Laurinaitis is a New York City photographer specializing in street and documentary photography. While color and fashion play a large role in her images, she enjoys creating images where her subjects are one with the environment. She is also drawn to the dichotomy between human interactions and isolation in the big city. Denise slows down and finds peace at the beach, an escape from city living. 

Denise’s work has been published in Click Magazine. In March 2019, she taught at Click Away in Dana Point, California. In June 2019, she taught an online photography class at Click Photo School. Students raved about the class, the reviews of which can be found here. Denise will be teaching at the Insta Inspire Photography Retreat in Phoenix, Arizona in April 2020. 

Denise currently shoots with a Leica m10P and m6.
