Puzzle Pivot with Scott Leggo
How Scott Leggo turned his landscape photography into jigsaw puzzles.
The first few months of 2020 have been challenging for many small business owners. For award-winning landscape photographer Scott Leggo, the journey has been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride. The bushfire crisis during the summer and the smoke that came with it slowed foot traffic to his gallery in Kingston, ACT. And just as things were returning to normal, COVID-19 forced him to shut the doors entirely.
Determined to find a way to adapt, Scott launched a brand new range of jigsaw puzzles, featuring some of his most iconic photographs. Initially developed as a response to the coronavirus, his puzzles have become so popular that Scott has decided to continue producing them.
Available in three different sizes (252, 500, and 1000 pieces), Scott’s puzzles are suitable for all ages and interest levels. They’re the perfect family activity for cold, winter weekends indoors, plus they make great gifts for birthdays, Christmas, or even just for the puzzle lovers in your life.
A QUALITY, AUSTRALIAN MADE PRODUCT
From the beginning, Scott’s photographic prints and cards have been made in Australia and held to the highest standard of quality. While many jigsaw puzzles are mass-produced cheaply overseas, Scott felt strongly that his puzzles should reflect the standard set by the rest of his product line. He works with a supplier in regional Victoria to produce the puzzles, and has recently received Australian Made and Owned accreditation for his entire range from the Australian Made Campaign.
Scott is a passionate outdoorsman, combining his spirit of adventure with his skills as a landscape photographer to create unique photos of the Australian landscape. From the snow-covered heights of the Australian Alps to the deserts of Central Australia, Scott has spent nearly fifteen years building his Australian landscape photography collection. Seeking to immerse himself in the environment he photographs, Scott often endures mother nature’s worst weather to capture the heart and soul of a location.
He has received over 100 Australian and international awards for his work – most notably, the coveted title of ‘Master of Photography’ by the prestigious Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). Scott has also won titles of landscape photographer of the year and professional photographer of the year in the ACT.
