Guest Photographer David Leyes

As the semester comes to a close the Lambton Digital Photography students took a welcome break from completing assignments to be entertained and informed, by celebrated commercial photographer David Leyes.

The guest appearance was one of our on-going speaker series, that the students will be developing into a video resource.

Leyes is a Toronto based, image-maker who has a diverse client base, of actors, celebrities, musicians, fashion, entertainment, advertising and business-world subjects.  

He creates photographs, for local and international clients including, Corus Entertainment; Sony Music; Universal Music; Cosmo TV; Unilever; Rolling Stone; CBC; The Toronto Star; The Globe & Mail; Live Nation and Universal Concerts to name just a few!

The students were exposed to two hours of Leyes' humour, education, advice, stories, background and insight into the professional photography world he lives.  His energetic and spontanious personality helped students understand how he works, and connects with his diverse range of subjects.  

The message to Practice, Practice, Practice was not lost on the Lambton students!

Thanks to David and his family for coming to Sarnia and devoting the time from their busy schedules to allow the Lambton College Digital Photography students to learn from another working professional photographer.
