Taking pictures outdoors is a perfect way to focus on beauty, to capture it through our own unique lens, and experience it again and again through photographs. Leonard will discuss aesthetic intelligence and photography as a means of connecting with the natural world and expressing emotion.
Leonard places the emphasis on photographers -- not the subject -- and teaches them to express themselves using the camera. By using the camera, coupled with the intention to see and appreciate beauty, she teaches photographers how to harness images of nature to connect, inspire and even heal.
Leonard got her start in photography in 1979 when her father gave her a Nikon. Ever since then, Leonard has had a love of all things photographic, and has participated in photo shoots around the world. She moved to the area from New York City in 2010, and resides in River Hills, S.C., where she also has a photography studio.
