Leif is a Northern European (Danish) photographer with a lifelong interest in taking pictures. After a lengthy break from photography, he got back into it around 10 years ago, and since 2010 he has been a regular participant in international photo competitions, resulting in more than 200 awards around the globe and exhibited pictures in 70 countries.
He has no set style – it is more a case of going where the image takes him. The subject decides the treatment the picture gets, from very naturalistic to heavily photoshopped. Subjects range just as wide with a tendency towards travel images and semi-long to long exposures.
