Lesley lives in the beautiful village of Stretton, near Warrington, Cheshire. She is mum to two grown-up sons and owner of two cheeky spaniels.
She grew up in an environment with strong family values where photography featured prominently in recording significant events and relationships. Very much a people person Lesley relates easily to babies, young children, teenagers and adults alike. Clients always comment on how relaxed they feel and how their whole portrait experience was just like being with a close friend. Lesley also grew up with a love of animals, surrounded by pets from horses to tarantulas! A graduate biologist, she has a firm understanding of animal behaviour which is very useful when working so closely with them.
A horse owner for many years, she recently lived a dream by riding on other continents … in Africa along the Zambezi River and also in South America high up in the Andes mountains.
Lesley is a fully qualified professional photographer. She is a Licentiate of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) and an Associate of the SINWP (Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers).
In January 2009 Lesley was delighted to be awarded the much sought after “UK Pet Photographer of the Year” in London by the professional photographers’ international society, the SWPP. She was also awarded the “Overall Natural World Photographer of the Year 2013” in January 2013.
She is a national and international speaker, training both amateur and professional photographers on the delights of people, equine, pet and wildlife photography.
Relax in the knowledge that you are in the hands of a true professional and someone extremely passionate about people, horses, pets and photography.
