“A photograph is now, forever.”

– Leanne Kelly

NICE TO MEET YOU!

My name is Leanne – but you can call me Lee.

I’m a professional portrait photographer and former News Limited press photographer.  

I love a good caramel slice, ice-cream in any weather and a proper Daiquiri – like the ones you can only find in Cuba! I love the tropics, the beach and warm summer nights. I’m addicted to linen shirts and quickly wear out a great pair of jeans. I’m an Ironman triathlete, author, educator, environmentalist, wife and mummy. I take my camera everywhere and am a master of my phone camera. I still shoot film and love hybrid (film and digital) photography. I also really like sleep, but who has time for that!

WHAT I DO

I’m an old school, ex-press photographer who tells visual stories with classic photographs that are inspired by the painting masters, a little Hollywood glamour, and a lot of laughs!

I’m a bit of a purist. I believe that in photography whites should be white, blacks should be black, and your skin tones should be, well, skin toned. After all, how many people do you know with purple skin? I work to capture carefully crafted, timeless images with a cinematic edge and fine art styling that were created the old fashioned way – with great composition, technique and experience. I’m also a composite artist, and shoot and deliver natural photographic compositions for clients requiring a blend of images. I focus on capturing the things that excite me and love telling stories through my images and writing, working with clients who want something unique and beautiful. The world is full of incredible stories and I want to share them!
