Next Saturday is your chance to quiz long-term Leica beta tester and leading photographer Jonathan Slack. Jono will be giving a talk about his experiences of camera testing at Red Dot Cameras in Goswell Road, City, between noon and 4 pm on December 14, 2019.
Man of many parts
Jono grew up in Cornwall. His father was a doctor, sculptor and photographer and was a friend to many of the artist community, including Barbara Hepworth and Patrick Heron. He’s a botanist by training and a software developer by practice, but photography has been his obsession since his twenties when he gave up painting.
He has been working with Leica Camera AG as a beta tester since 2007, beginning with the M8 and including all the major releases since then. During this time, he has come to understand that Leica really is dedicated to the essence of photography and that the M10 is “the pinnacle of reductionist functionality”.
Low-down on testing
Here’s your chance to find out what it’s like to work with Leica as the company develops a new camera or lens. There will be a question-and-answer session and you can also get your hands on the new SL2.
