About Me


My name is Leonard James and I have been interested in photography since my early twenties.  In the beginning I played around with macro, landscape and night photography and genuinely enjoyed taking photographs. I took my first photography class at Cal Poly Pomona in the early 1979's where I learned photography basics including how to process black & white and color film.   I converted my closet to a darkroom and processed color and black and white images for several years.   Then life happened and photography took a back seat for two decades.


I started doing a little traveling in the early 2000’s and my interest in photography started to grow once again.  I bought my first digital camera in 2008 as I was about to leave for vacation in Alaska.  The camera arrived 2 days before my departure date.  Although I was unfamiliar with digital photography, the trip and the new camera re-ignited my passion for photography.  I took photography classes in 2009 and 2010 at Sierra College to review photography basics and learn how to work with digital cameras and digital files.


As I became more familiar with my digital camera and learned to process raw files, my passion for photography once again burned with intensity.


During the process I developed a keen interest in bird and flower photography. Now, I enjoy photographing wildlife and flowers. 


I enjoy sharing my photos with family, friends and others who share an interest in my work.

A very nice collection of photographs, Leonard.
We met last night in Rocklin at the reception party. Reading your "statement" on photography we had a similar occurrence. On a trip to Alaska we did a stopover in Vancouver, BC, for last minute supplies on our journey. We were only gone a short time from our van but someone had broken in and took my film camera and lenses. I had one secondary camera body in a different location which they didn't get. Further north in Canada I found a camera store and bought a lens for it. Once I got back to Auburn I went shopping for my first digital camera. I loved getting out of the darkroom and into the world of digital photography.
Keep up the good work.
