A Classic Challange

Chosen from thousands of entrants, the Leica Akademie was pleased to welcome four winners from a competition run by leading technology website, Pocket-Lint.com, on Saturday 5 November for an exclusive Leica SL workshop. Hosted by Akademie tutor, Robin Sinha, and Pocket-Lint’s reviews editor, Mike Lowe, the winners were treated to a full, hands-on demonstration of the high-performance mirrorless system, before taking to the streets of Mayfair to shoot with the camera for the very first time. Their challenge? To capture the spirit of the Regent Street Motor Show in a short series of images, documenting the atmosphere and special moments happening at the event, rather than just focusing purely on the cars.

The results? A spectacular set of photos that really embraced the spirit and ambience of the event.

Many thanks to Pocket-Lint for hosting the competition, and thank you to the winners for their enthusiasm and participation in the workshop. A successful day all round!
