Richard Rejino
Richard is the Executive Director of LHSA - The International Leica Society and a part-time professional photographer. He is also a classically trained pianist, writer and published author. His book, "What Music Means to Me" is available from Hal Leonard Corporation.


I’m of course disappointed that the Society will not be meeting in person, but I’m thrilled the meeting is happening (virtually) anyway!

    As are we, Michael. We’re hopeful that by next spring we will be able to meet for our Spring Shoot.

    With best wishes – Richard Rejino

      I actually love the idea of being able to attend it, Since I wasn’t able to travel to the US for it previous years. So I would love it to continue next years, Even as an additional event to the physical one.

Yes, the virtual event suits me as I wouldn’t be able to attend otherwise.

Dear Richard,
I have just booked for the Virtual Annual meeting.
Looking forward to Dublin- whenever.
Philip Ramsden

Hi Richard, In 45 years of membership in the LHSA I’ve only been able to attend, in person, one annual meeting. I welcome the opportunity to attend virtually. Thank you! Stan Blevins


Will the Annual Meeting sessions, such as the one by Antonio on the M10R be recorded in the event that we cannot attend a certain session?


Hi, Richard—Will any of the sessions be recorded? I may have to miss a session.

Registered. Look forward to the talks

The sessions will be recorded but will not be available for quite some time, and perhaps for a fee.

Will have to work in between work meetings, but looking forward to seeing everyone. Thanks for putting the meeting on!

So happy to be able to attend virtually. My first annual meeting.
