Based out of London, Lesley works internationally between Europe, New York and Los Angeles, where she was based out of until her recent return to the UK.
Graduating from Salford University, Gtr Manchester in 2008, she became recipient of the Media Award for photography at the prestigious London Fashion Week event of the same year.
Within 3 months of graduating she had gained her first editorial commission from Paris, and was quickly named as 'one to watch' by the British Journal of Photography who ran a feature on her youth portraiture work.
Soon after, she had shot her first commercial fashion campaign for UK brand River Island, allowing Lesley to quickly expand her practice shooting for both women's and menswear fashion. She built her book over the next couple of years, shooting for UK high street majors before making a bold move out to Los Angeles in early 2012. She spent the next 6 yrs working with Stateside brands and advertisers, taking advantage of adding some West Coast light to her work.
An experienced producer, she is often heavily involved in the full production of her commercial projects, from casting, location, permitting, and post production.
Her eye for fashion, coupled with her empathy towards the younger subject, make her a perfect go-to choice for brands working in both the adult and youth fashion and advertising markets. Her personal work has attained numerous honourable mentions in the IPA Awards.
