Leonard’s Photography is a family owned and operated company that has been in business for over sixty years. While it is true that strong family ties exist within the Tucker family itself, similar family bonds resonate throughout the entire company, especially within the Photographic Lab. “We have all worked together for so long. We work well together. We are a very good team,” says Debbie Bates, the Photographic Printing and Digital Editing Supervisor. Debbie has been with Leonard’s since 1987. “When I first started we had film. Some of the photo printing was done in the dark rooms and we had to physically move the film by hand,” Debbie states. Since then, there have been incredible advancements in technology and the lab has worked together as a team to transition into the digital age.
“At Leonard’s we believe our advantage is the people on our team. With an average employee tenure of over 17 years, we have a strong family bond amongst us that is second to none! We have such a diverse line of products and services we offer, so the fact that we are all in one location, working together as a team, helps the process go smoothly. I couldn’t be more proud of our fantastic group!” says Randy Sellers, Director of Operations. With team members that have been with Leonard’s for over thirty years, such as Susan Winman, the Photographic Lab Supervisor, and Britt George, the Photographic Packaging and Finishing Supervisor, it is no wonder that the lab operates as smoothly as it does. Both Susan and Britt attribute Leonard’s success to organization, an efficient work flow, and most importantly, team work.
