Staten Island, N.Y. — Staten Island Instagrammer Marc Leonard’s (@blasko25) dad Ron was his photography inspiration. “My father always had a camera on him,” he said.
His father preferred a small film camera made by Minox, he recalled.
“He carried that camera everywhere and took thousands of photos of places and his friends. Like my father, I wanted to take photographs and document the small things that were most important to me.”
Today, Leonard embraces digital photography. “Taking RAW images and using Lightroom and Photoshop to make stunning creatives are what I really enjoy,” he said. “I also utilize drones to photograph this world from a perspective that no land-based camera could ever capture.”
