Hi! I'm Lee - a creative photographer, husband and daddy to Alfie (8yrs) and Ava (4yrs). I love photography (obviously), going for walks in beautiful places and I may or may not have a slight obsession with drinking good coffee.
Creativity is in my DNA!
My Dad taught me to draw as soon as I could pick up a pencil and at school I stood out in Graphic Design and art. I also enjoy painting and restoring old, and once loved, bits of furniture.
I spent every weekend with my Grandparents growing up and my Grandad (who everyone calls Bank) always had cameras and video cameras, albeit the old ones with actual film in them. From the age of 5yrs I was enlisted as his "little helper" during shoots and editing sessions. It was here where my love for pictures and storytelling began. I'd often spend hours every weekend sifting through boxes at junk shops and car boot sales, looking for pictures that inspired me.
Although photography began as a hobby, it soon became my favourite way to be creative; telling stories through pictures and a preserving special memories for friends and family members.
I went on to train under a member of the Royal Photographic Society and I also studied wedding photography at the prestigious London School of Photography (LSP). What I learnt along the way, helped me to create my own unique photo journalistic style.
My role as a documentary wedding photographer is to tell a story, hunt for natural light, capture all the small bits as well as the epic moments, and do so in an unobtrusive way. I steer away from controlling the scene as much as possible (those dreaded posed shots) and simply photograph my observations in an honest way.
So, that’s a little bit about me. I'd love to know your story? Please get in touch so we can discuss you, your plans, and how I can help you record this amazing chapter.
