My first interests in photography were at a very young age with this Kodak 127 film camera given to me by my Nana, which now comes with me to wedding shows, the camera that is..
Things have really moved on since then and through the film stages of photography learning on many formats from 120 to plate cameras at college, and also at my first job in a popular local studio where I trained and qualified with the BIPP & MPA at the time.
I was a photographer with this company for 12 years before stepping out alone to create Colin Leonard Photography.
In 2012 I joined & qualified with The Guild Of Photographers who are one of the leaders in today’s industry offering me regular workshops and ways to develop my style.
Today’s digital technology has really opened up the creativeness in many ways.
The darkroom these days is in the way of a dual screen computer in room light and long hours editing.
