Greenbrier, United States

My name is Leon Werner Heyns and was born in Cape Town, South Africa. I have lived in SA for most of my life and started taking photos when a kind lady sold me her old Minolta SRT 101 in 1980. Then it was all about manual settings and mostly black and white. Didn’t do much with my photography until recently and started paying more attention and are learning every day. Now I use a Nikon D80 with assortment of lenses and a Olympus Stylus Tough for underwater shots.
I am currently working as a private island manager in the Exuma islands of the Bahamas with my lovely wife Michelle, who manages our charter yacht booking site: www.bvicats.com which offer luxury charter sailing vacations in the British Virgin Islands and other Caribbean destinations.
Check out other photos that I have taken for our website:

Nice to be back

Hi everyone. You may not have noticed my lack of participation in RB for a couple of months now, I have been very active in sailing our new catamaran from France to our little part of the Caribbean here in the British Virgin Islands. That is why I have not been active in my photography or partaking in any of the RB activities. / I am happy to be online again and look forward to following your wor…
