Leila collaborates with conservationists, ornithologists and sanctuaries around the world to find her subjects before forging an intimate relationship with the birds that she photographs in her studio. Through Jeffreys’ gaze, seemingly minor details such as the shape of a cockatoo’s beak, the rise and fall of a budgerigar’s plumage and the curious expression that flits across the face of a hawk are freighted with meaning.

Leila has exhibited in galleries around the globe, most recently and most ambitiously being her solo show ‘High Society’ which was exhibited in the Olsen Gallery in Sydney and Olsen Gruin in New York. In addition to her exhibitions Leila has published an award winning book ‘Birdland’ and has featured in many publications including The Guardian, Vogue, Australia Geographic, Harpers Bazaar and many more.

We have been happy to work with Leila in the past to make sure she had the right equipment at the right time - who knew birds could be such demanding portrait sitters!

This interactive seminar is sure to be a treat full of insight.
