Alan Lechner


















Alan Leckner is an art director and heads his own graphics design firm. He is also a lifelong photo enthusiast who began photographing wildlife in 1986. Alan started attracting birds with a simple home-made feeder and quickly realized the challenges that go into making quality photo images.


He offers workshops, has been published in NY Alive Magazine and the Detroit Sunday Press, and exhibits at the Guild of Creative Art, Monmouth Festival of the Arts, and Township Libraries. Alan enjoys judging, sharing his methods, experiences, and knowledge at photo clubs. He also has created a series of slide presentations and lectures.


Although his home base is New Jersey and all of its wildlife sanctuaries, he travels throughout the United States and abroad to create thoughtful and artistic photographs of nature.


He is currently President of the Monmouth Camera Club in Colts Neck, NJ.




Alan received an honorable mention in the prestigious Sherman Hines Museum of Photography Postcard Competition, 2003. In addition, one of his photo images of Sandy Hook received the Blue Ribbon at the Monmouth County Fair in 2003, and in 2002, he was awarded both a blue and gold ribbon for nature photography, also at the Monmouth County Fair.
