I am so glad that we are having Leigh for the day. I have known him for many years and, apart from his photography, Leigh is a brilliant raconteur and wit and a thoroughly nice guy.                                         Barry Collin, webmaster.

I can recommend you read this brilliant short account of his life in Britain in the 50s and 60s, taken from his book “Shadows Of Change” published 1993 and still available . . .read the extract here

In the morning he will be dealing with the ART OF SEEING pictures - which alludes to the use of location, using picture space, the placement of elements & design within a picture, the emotional content of an image and how that is affected by light.

After lunch (please bring your own or eat locally) we shall be treated images that encompass Street life, photo journalism/travel, industrial landscapes ,some work to show design, a few character portraits and some landscape work, along with some images that have a humorous element and images that concern themselves with the darker episodes of 20th century history. all will be in themes and sections.

Leigh has been involved in photography for nearly 30 years as a freelance photographer, club lecturer, international salon exhibitor, author, and regular contributor to magazines. An FRPS in both the Visual Arts and Darkroom Printing panels and a member of the London Salon of Photography and Arena, his main interest is travel and landscape photography, both urban and in the wild.

Leigh still produces monochrome images in the darkroom, but his main output is now digital prints. He has a passion for atmospheric monochrome work, often working in a thematic way and enjoys the whole process from finding the images to their production and presentation and enjoys passing on his knowledge to other photographers.
