Jonathan C. Leacock (J. C.) birth date Feb. 1, 1960, US citizen. Jonathan Charles Leacock was born in Portsmouth, OH in 1960 to British parents. His Father, a Director and Producer of film and television, was directing an episode of "Route 66", when J. C. decided to enter the world a bit early, on location as it were. Philip and Carolyn then returned to California where J.C. spent most of his boyhood accented by short stints in the U.K. J.C.'s father Phil was an avid photographer as was his Grandmother, Enid Slater. Phil, and especially Enid, who spent many hours with J.C. in her London darkroom, encouraged his photographic interests throughout his younger years. J.C.'s parents also enjoyed camping and backpacking, and took him and sister Rebecca out into the wilds of the Sierras and Baja at every opportunity. Inspired as he was by nature and the outdoors, J.C. eventually majored in Environmental Studies and Geography, receiving B.A.'s in each from UC Santa Barbara. While doing fieldwork for his studies at Santa Barbara, J.C. made numerous trips to California's scenic and pristine Channel Islands, where he was enthralled by their beauty. Capturing this beauty took his photography to a new level, and awakened a desire to photograph professionally. He then enrolled in Brooks Institute of Photography, also in Santa Barbara, and one of the premier photography schools in the country. Upon graduating from Brooks in 1988, J.C. moved with his wife to Colorado, a state he had fallen in love with years before, and eventually built a successful freelance photography business there.
