In the late 1940’s, Les’s passion for photography grew out of his first hobby of “birding.” It was his fascination with birds that drew him to the camera as a means of recording and sharing his enjoyment of their beauty. His search for photographic subjects quickly expanded to encompass all of nature, people and landscapes. Les Campbell has been photographing the Quabbin Reservoir most of his adult life. His work can be seen in his Sky Meadow studio in Belchertown as well as the Quabbin Visitor Center.
