About me
Rich Leighton is a native Floridian professional photographer and owner of Leighton Photography & Imaging located in the Greater Seattle, Washington area. He splits his time shooting and focusing on outdoor/beach weddings and portraits in natural settings, and traveling the United States in a concentrated effort to photograph and preserve the REAL America. Whether on location shooting the most extravagant of glamorous beach weddings, wading chest-deep in the swamps of the Florida Everglades or high in the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific NW, he shoots with Nikon professional cameras, is an active member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and is constantly in pursuit of photographic excellence.

Together with his wife and partner, Galina - they are the creators and sole contributors of the widely popular FloridaNaturePhotography.com - started in 2006, it is a treasure trove of images, stories and articles about the natural history of the Sunshine State with a unique native point of view.

"Nature is a big component of my work. When shooting on location - I find the exact point of harmony between my subject and our chosen natural setting and use that as my guide. I want the bride to look like she was born to be on the beach, not just a woman on a background. I want my wildlife to be as alive as the backdrop - not in contrast to it. I want my subjects to both enhance and be enhanced by the beauty of our natural world. This is the true essence of the art of photography."

Rich Leighton's work has been sold all over the world and has appeared in magazines, books, newspapers and other places from educational exhibits to retail stores. He is currently becoming more involved in writing for numerous venues and clients, and recently finished his first book, "Native Orchids of Florida".
