Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is David Leane , these days I am a part time photographer who just loves creating art that is good for my soul and the subjects

I work with, I am in my late 50s and live in a large country town in South Australia , Australia .. still living in the town I was born in.

How and when did you get into photography?

My interest in photography probably comes from both my parents being keen amature photographers and growing up with a dark room in the back room of the house and

Saturday nights with the kitchen transformed into a makeshift studio.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I think I have a diverse style but always based around photographing a subject , I need the conection with another human to be able to create art ...

I find the collaboration process is where the art is created.

Where do you get inspiration from?

Life and emotions and people... art I have seen and photographers whos images I fall in love with.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Sometimes , especially with projects that I am involved with the planning off.. but most times ideas are spontaneous

Studio, on location or both?


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

These days more a hobbyist but I still do some paid work

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Such a hard question , I have had so many amazing experiences and the most memorable are for many different reasons ... I photographed portraits of a 16 yr old who was dying.

dying from brain cancer so the family would have nice images to remember him, it was the hardest thing to do but the conversations we had and him reasuring me was an amazing moment.

Another was climbing down cliffs to reach a secluded beach, I dont like heights and I am not built to climb these days but being encouraged all the way by my amazing Muse and best friend

was so rewarding, not just in getting to the location but also the images we shot that day.

Studio, on location or both?


What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

I cant give business advice, I fail at that part but advice about photography would be to never be complacent and never stop learning.

What do you think of our new magazine?

I love the magazine, its so refreshing to have a space for photographers and models to experience the world getting to know who they are.
