    If your Reading this, Hello hope this finds you well.
    My Name is Leo also known as Paul Leonardo or Shotwithnoshoeson
    I've been shooting for a while... not that it shows! ha ha ... grew up with film mainly 35mm.
    My passion started young in exploring the world of annoying my mom with my experimental angles, they were never seen as complimentary ;-)
    I moved into commercial assisting work in Australia then into a lab for 3 years processing BW on mass, worked my way into the dark room for the final year as the digital format was rearing its head.
    the lab subsequently lost custom I lost my job.

    I furthered my studies in assisting the inspirational and talented Photographer Chris Colls for 7 years firstly till shooting polaroids and Pentax 6x7 then moving into the digital realm with Hasselblad.

    now out on my own shooting digital Nikon for commercial work.

    I've always shot film and collected old cameras from rangefinders to twins then moved into the wonderful 5x4 system by purchasing my beloved Linhof tech IV couple of lenses poly back + 6x9

    I'm also a lover of my home made the 4x5 pinhole.

    My personal Photographic passion has always been BW film to have the opportunity to shoot 5x4 and pull a sheet from the tank still warms my soul.

    so in closing thanks to Ian Barber for the great dedication he has for the Photographic Medium whether digital or film, I hope to be able to contribute to this wonderful community of VerY creative people, thanks for the inspiration.

    peace and good light

    Leo
