Bio - Ron Leckie

Ron Leckie


Hello,

My interest in photography started as a teenager at senior school in Edinburgh, Scotland, when I could be found between classes, at sporting events, etc. taking shots of the pupils and teachers. I primarily used 35mm film, but was occasionally seen with an 8mm movie camera. Television seemed like a promising career to combine my photography and electronics passions, but I was persuaded to go to university first and study Electronics (sound advice as it turned out). I built my own darkroom at home in the 1960s, and while going through University, managed to make "spending money" by doing professional wedding photography (black and white).

At University, I was active in the amateur Television Society, which was fun but helped me see that I should pursue my electronics vocation and keep the photography media as a hobby. This was a decision that in hindsight I have never regretted, letting me enjoy a successful career in the "boom" years of semiconductor technology, transferring to Silicon Valley where we now reside.  This technology career permitted me to reserve my passion for photography as a hobby - only to enjoy seeing them converge completely in today's digital age.

Digital media has revitalized my interest in photography and has opened up new tools and technologies to create some great images. I hope you enjoy viewing the results of my photography activities and perhaps consider buying some of the products. Contact me if you have interest in other products and sizes not shown on this site.
