About Maria

Maria Leekblade is a Level 3 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. She returned in 2021-22 as judge for PDI Round 2 and in 2023 she judged PDI Round 4. She was one of the judges for our 2024 Annual Exhibition.

She was on the committee of Southampton International Exhibition for 8 years.

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.

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.
