Leith began his love affair with photography over 20 years ago, when he got his first film SLR camera studying photography at high school in his homeland of NZ.
In 2005 Leith completed a Bachelor of Media Arts majoring in Photography in Hamilton NZ. After freelancing while completing his degree, he then moved to Melbourne with dreams of being a full time photographer. After a break from working as a photographer, Leith began working on his photography career once again in 2016 and set up a home studio for photographing craft beer, an industry he had been working in for a number of years.
Combining his passion and expert knowledge of craft beer and photography seemed like a dream come true, which in mid-late 2017 resulted in Leith leaving his full time job to focus on his photography career.
