My name is Leela Cyd -- I'm a photographer, lover of tea and nibbles, blogger and story teller. I was raised around a table full of artists and writers, about a block from the Pacific Ocean. My home base is in Santa Barbara, CA but I travel on assignment around the world. I find a good cuppa wherever I go.

I teach photo workshops in Italy every year, join me May 2013 for a week of picture making, bicycle riding, Prosecco drinking and laughter. Here are the details.
