Leo Howard Lubow is a writer, educator, and award-winning photographer who specializes in portraits, headshots, commercial & promotional images, and fine art prints. He offers courses in digital photography, Photoshop, street photography, and black & white photography, both in his studio and in association with educational organizations such as Johns Hopkins University (The Odyssey Program) and the Horizon Workshops (Summit, University of Delaware). Lubow also conceives, photographs and designs CD covers and inserts for musicians. Since 1997, when he gave up his practice as a business litigator, he has completed an existential thriller, written articles on interests ranging from jazz to boxing, and created a varied body of images for clients and magazines, including: Simon & Schuster, The Huffington Post, Good Morning America, Downbeat Magazine, Jazziz, JazzTimes, the Monterey Jazz Festival, NPR.org, Baltimore Magazine, The Baltimore Sun, The Luminous Landscape, NBC Sports, Style Magazine, and American Dog Magazine. Lubow also has photographed over 170 billboards/posters for the Show Your Soft Side Campaign, a pro-bono anti-animal abuse effort that continues to grow, presently reaching a Facebook audience of more than 300,000 each week.
In his personal work, Lubow’s interest lies in the individual or lone traveler, separated from the mainstream of life, whether it be a musician lost in the music, a sailboat racing a storm, a street artist with no audience, or a homeless person sleeping beneath a billboard of vampires. In short, he looks for emotional resonance in the isolated moment.
Lubow lives in Owings Mills, Maryland with his wife, Annette, and their cat, Chihuahua puppy & Havanese puppy, one of whom is very bad.
