You may already be familiar with the work of English photographer Leon Steele. For the past 20 years his work has been seen by millions of people around the globe.
His high achievement as a commercial photographer and as an artist have seen him shoot on assignment for the world’s leading advertising agencies, bringing to life countless ad campaigns for prodigious global brands from Amnesty International to Absolut Vodka.
Leon has twice had work selected for the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition in London as well as exhibiting in Paris and New York. Prized amongst his many awards was winning the prestigious John Kobal Portrait Award (now Taylor Wessing). He also featured in the 10 year Kobal retrospective at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
Leon's continued involvement in photography at the highest level and over so many years, has bought with it many accolades and international recognition as one of the leaders in the field.
Gratefully it has also given Leon the opportunity to advance and refine his personal artwork and passion photographing equine and the landscape. The idea of combining both animals and their surroundings came about whilst Leon was traveling in Kenya in 1993. These camel landscapes were a turning point in the way Leon viewed his surroundings and a catalyst for his expanded vision.
Leon lives in Pittsburgh with the Actress Stacey Roca and their children Georgia-Rae and Julian.
Born in Winchester England in 1970.
