Who is Leon?
I am based in Auckland New Zealand where I live with my wife and 2 young children, however I travel to wherever my work takes me. I have completed campaigns in Australia and the Pacific and have production contacts throughout the regions.
My passion for photography stems from travelling the world for 7 years in my youth. I love to capture the world and its beauty, and of course all the fascinating characters I meet on the way.
Throughout my career I have developed and maintained strong relationships with clients across several industries and professions. I have helped thousands of businesses better connect with their market, by providing them with excellent service, dynamic photography solutions and ongoing support. I strongly believe in the power of customer satisfaction and the weight of networking along the journey.
In order to indulge my passion for landscapes, I regularly choose to drive to locations for clients' shoots rather than fly, allowing me to indulge in the languid observation of our worlds manifold beauty.
Being married to a French woman gives me regular opportunity to travel to Europe where the soft hazy winter light adds a different dimension to my landscape shots.
In 2015 I published a monograph on Muay Thai Kickboxing in NZ. This side project kept me busy for over 12 years. Completing & publishing this book with PQ Blackwell, “Live, Train, Fight like Thai” is my first published book. This photo documentary following the Muay Thai scene through my contacts at City Lee Gar gym has given me the chance to shoot a subject that is in complete contrast to my commercial work and more well known Landcape images.
I like to push the boundaries with my abilities and development - I call this growth!
