Visiting old (and new) friends

East Grinstead, Sussex, Great Britain, January 2, 2014

We flew from Bangkok to Dubai to Hamburg to Gatwick in London on the January 1st and 2nd, and as my old friend Niki Lanik and his wife Ryan and new daughter Quinn live on a farm just 15 minutes from Gatwich, what more obvious idea than paying them a visit and stay overnight.

So we went to hang out and enjoy some homemade food in their 400 yaar old farmhouse, slept with the ghosts and went to London next day.

 

Ryan and Quinn. As a dedicated up-and-coming food critics as well, Quinn is figuring out how many stars to give for the dinner.

"Dear Mr Overgaard,
After visiting your site and seeing what a Leica camera could do I went out and purchased one. Thanks for all the great advice and tips, it's really helped me to understand the M240! All best.
"

 
  - J. L. (Singapore)  

 


Despite her young age Quinne is already making attempts to figuring out the answers to life's big questions...

"Towards the end of 2012 I purchased a Leica M9P camera and Leica 35mm lens; I did not know how much this little black box was about to shape all of 2013 for me.

In Jan 2013 I attended a four day workshop in London with Danish photographer Thorsten Overgaard. It was, not only, an incredibly informative few days but also tons of fun and I met some wonderful people. The encouragement I got from Thorsten and everyone else gave me an incredible boost to get 2013 started. In fact I loved the workshop so much I immediately enrolled on the Sept 13 session which turned out to be even better.

I found Thorstens straight forward approach to both using the camera and towards editing extremely refreshing but it was the way he taught me how to look for light that, honestly, changed the way I view the world.

I see differently now and because of that I also think differently. I've started to compose and record music in a way that is much clearer and for the first time in my career true to how I want to hear it.
"

Coffee & Leica Freaks Meetup London

London, January 5, 2014

As we did in Jakarta, Korea, Bangkok and elsewhere in the last months, we also tried to meet up with the Leica Freaks in London. So on the evening of January 5 we had a solid group of former students and local freaks and folks from THE LEICA MEET join forces at The Charlotte Street Hotel.

Also see the article "And Evening with Thorsten Overgaard" by Mike Evans.

"I was participant on your photo workshops in Malmö in 2011 and 2012. My abilities increased beyond imagination after that. Will you be offering a workshop only about portrait photography?"

 
  - C. B.  (Malmo, Sweden)  

 

     
 

"Do you know what's funny. I spend so much time reading your website regarding the M9 past few days because I bought an M9-P on ebay by accident (I did not have the money) and I felt so happy about the words you where writing. Because after working with the X2 and now with the M9, I feel so much pleasure taking photos again (after using D300 and D800).

Your website gives me so much support and I really love your work (photos and website). Thank you for supporting me, whilst not knowing me!"


 
  - T. F. (Hamburg)

A new Leica Store Burlington Arcade in London opened up as a pop-up bortique in end of December 2013. It is part of the Leica Store Mayfair complex and will be undergoing top to bottom renocations in spring 2014 so as to reopen as a new Leica spot on the map.
