Justin Leighton Photographer. Film-maker. Beginning his career over 25 years ago with a short-lived but instructional foray into magazine publication, Justin's creative eye and intrepid spirit have since taken him on a successful, diverse and at times personally challenging journey through the world of photography and filmmaking. His early career saw him commissioned by some of the world’s most prestigious publications to cover the extremes of the Balkan conflict, the first Gulf War, the Good Friday Agreement and the fall of communism in Eastern Europe. His extraordinary work marked him out and he joined Network Photographers, a prestigious collective of some of the best photojournalists of the 20th century. In 1997 he won Nikon's Press Photographer of the Year. In recent years Justin has brought a different focus to his work. With his love of photography, storytelling and cars, and a desire to undertake some fresh challenges he turned his eye on the world of the automobile, whilst also continuing to capture compelling moments, people and environments in the world around him. Justin has filmed and photographed some of the world's rarest and most beautiful cars in breathtaking locations across the globe. He has also shot some of the most iconic personalities of our time including Bill Clinton, Hunter S Thompson, Leonard Bernstein, Spike Lee, Wes Anderson, Ron Jeremy, Jeremy Irons, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher and Sterling Moss.
