Leigh is an accomplished commercial and fine art photographer with a studio in Healdsburg, California. He provides portrait, product, editorial, food and event photography for individuals and businesses, including marketing and communication firms, wineries, real estate brokers and publications.
Leigh’s quiet, confident manner puts people at ease in front of his camera and allows them to create genuine and unique portraits together.
Regardless of the subject matter, creating a well-crafted and beautifully lit image is his most important goal and he is equally at home using flash or natural lighting, whether in the studio or on location. Leigh shoots in both digital and film format and is a master at processing and printing both by hand and digitally in Photoshop and Lightroom.
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Leigh has lived and worked in Chicago, St. Petersburg, Pittsburgh and New York. While visiting Northern California’s wine country to work with their Lusitano horses, he and his wife were lured by the beauty, the people and the quality of life to settle in the Dry Creek Valley, just outside Healdsburg.
