Ted Leeming was born in Hampshire in 1966, moving to the Isle of Wight and then Cornwall when
he was 14. Following his degree where he studied Geography with Communications and Visual
Anthropology his real love of photography began whilst travelling through the Far East and
Australia for the following year.
He set up as a freelance photographer in the late 1980s in London working mostly for trade
magazines and commissions for actors and model portfolios. Following a commission to be the
photographer on a 6 month expedition to Chilean Patagonia in 1990 he returned to Cornwall with
an ever strengthening commitment to the environment. He became involved in the field of
renewable energy, continuing to take photos and setting up his own company with a friend in Glasgow in 1996.
Whilst maintaining a commitment to the environment, in 2004 Ted decided to acknowledge his
passion for photography, leaving the company and travelling for a year through Scotland, the
UK, Europe and Northern Africa to update his portfolio of landscape and environmental images -
the fields of photography he now specialises in.
