This is a joint talk with Durham Photographic Society.
Leo classes himself as a “Jobbing Amateur” who will photograph anything that takes his fancy though he has developed a love of taking environmental portraits when travelling.
Having acquired an interest in photography whilst a schoolboy, and teaching himself to take, develop and print pictures he has been a “club photographer” for many years and is an avid entrant in photographic exhibitions throughout the world. In the past eight years alone he has amassed over 1000 acceptances, achieving numerous medals, ribbons and awards from over 30 countries on all five Continents.
He is also a Photographic Alliance of Great Britain Judge and has been the Selector for National and International Exhibitions as well as their own Awards for Photographic Merit Scheme.
Leo does not give lectures but “talks” which, besides illustrating some of his work, also points out the idiosyncrasies he has experienced especially at the hands of photographic judges throughout his life.
His love of travel has taken him to many countries in the World and he has a special interest in India where he enjoys introducing friends to the joys of photographing the people and wildlife on his visits.
