About Leigh Preston

Leigh Preston's Photography encompasses a variety of areas within the modern photographic scene, including tuition, image processing and, of course, actually taking photographs.

Leigh has a relatively specific approach to what he chooses to make pictures of, and relies heavily on atmospherics, dramatic lighting and strong story lines to convey an individual style.

Leigh holds two RPS Fellowships, one for pictorial images taken of the mill towns in Lancashire and Yorkshire  and  the  other for Darkroom printing and belongs to the ARENA group of photographers and is a member of The London Salon. Leigh has published many books and has had a number of one-man exhibitions in London, Dublin, Birmingham, Reading, Manchester, Gloucester and Belfast.

Now semi-professional, his work revolves around teaching at college or on workshops and at seminars all over the UK also in the USA and Europe and enjoys the chance to share his experience and his passion for photography. His website can be viewed at www.leighpreston.co.uk.
