Leica M and SL Hands on event with Robin Sinha

 On Friday 3rd November 2017 we are excited to host two events catered towards the Leica M and SL camera systems. In whichever session you choose you will be hands on with the cameras, allowing you to explore the remarkable capabilities of either systems.

The two sessions run as a morning session (10am-1pm) for the Leica M range and the afternoon session (2pm-5pm) which will focus on the Leica SL range. These sessions will be held at our academy on Parsonage Street in Dursley, Gloucestershire where you'll be given an overview of the camera system and its features. Following this you'll then be given time to test out these features within the local area; the sessions will then end with a Q&A with Robin whilst going over the images you have shot during the workshop.

If either of these workshops appeal to you then see below for a more in depth explanation of either session.

    Robin Sinha

    Growing up in Newcastle, Robin Sinha moved to London in 2003 where he’s remained ever since. Quickly side stepping a potential, and most likely disastrous, career in PR, Robin returned to university undertaking a photography degree at LCC, University of the Arts.While studying for this degree, Robin began assisting photographer Manuel Vason, and had his first taste of high budget, commercial photography at home and abroad.
    Soon after Robin began assisting at London’s Big Sky Studios working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry.Aside from painting coves and perfecting the art of tea making, Robin began learning the intricacies of studio lighting and began experimenting with portraiture. This marked the beginning of his love for people-led photography.
    In 2009 Robin joined Leica’s Akademie in Mayfair where he currently leads the photography training program while continuing to pursue his passion for portraiture, street and documentary photography. Robin’s work has been published in the likes of Dazed and Confused, Monocle and Black+White magazine, while previous clients include YouTube, COS and Clinique.
