About Maria

Maria Leekblade is a Level 2 SCPF judge.

She developed her photography skills as an adult learner at Brockenhurst College and by being an active member of Lymington and Southampton Camera Clubs. She also found time to be an active member of Winchester Photographic Society for several years.

In 202-21 we welcomed Maria as our judge for PDI Round 1, and she returned in 2021-22 as judge for PDI Round 2.

According to her profile on eventbrite,

Maria has lived in the New Forest for nearly 20 years and her love of photography started with her animals.

Maria is one of the team that runs the Southampton International Exhibition of Photography.

However, Maria’s heart lies at home – her animals are always a firm favourite and the local landscape, people, flora & fauna that share our stunning Forest will always be her first love, and being able to capture them remains the motivation and pleasure for picking up the camera.
