I’m a Derby based photographer who loves life, technology and traveling the World to take photos! If you want to know a little more about me, read away…

I live in a beautiful village called Darley Abbey in the small city of Derby. I have two brothers, a small group of amazing friends and of course, 3 chickens (Darcy, Chuckle and Beatrice!)

I first picked up a camera when I was a wee 14 year old lad for one of my school projects. I was so excited by it, I set up a lab in my parents’ shed and have developed prints ever since. My previous career was with Toni and Guy as an Artistic Director for ‘14’ years so I have gained a wealth of experience with both styling and cameras. It was here I realised that I wanted to work with the idea of photography more…and I have never looked back!

Needless to say (referring back to my first section above) I love life; outdoor life to be precise. When I’m not running around, trying to take the best shot, I am always outdoors with friends. I love surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding and, of course, I’m lucky enough to be quite good at them all.

My photography career has taken me all over the country and world, Italy, France, America,Spain, just to name a few and I still haven’t seen enough. I photograph for weddings, commercial companies and fashion shows and have loved every shoot I have done.

So if you like what you read, please do not hesitate to get in touch…I am completely at your disposal!

Was lovely to meet leigh yesterday even though I didn't get chance to have a good chat with Lee as we was all busy on the Photoshoot.
But he was very friendly and approachable and we had a laugh while he was shooting
.i can't wait to see the finish images looking forward to our paths crossing in the future.

Leigh was the photographer at our wedding in September and I could not recommend him highly enough! What we didn't want for our wedding was a traditional 'static' photographer who just got groups of people to stand uncomfortably poised for a photo! We wanted a natural feeling that captured the 'magic' of the day. We were not disappointed! The photos Leigh created for us were absolutely pieces of art in their own right - he allowed for a relaxed and natural environment and did an absolutely fantastic job of keeping me calm in the chaos and run up to the church. During the day he just blended in with guests and captured many spontaneous and special moments, without us even knowing he was snapping away! We have also been incredibly impressed with the attention to detail and editing of the photos after the wedding, well worth the wait! Thanks for making our day extra special Leigh :-)

Leigh and Renata went ‘above and beyond’ our expectations at our wedding on Saturday, not only helping me out when others went slightly off piste, but doing so with such a good natured humour and reassuring calmness, nothing was too much trouble. We can’t thank you enough and can’t wait to see the pics! X

'In a word…Brilliant!! We met Leigh at a friend’s wedding and absolutely loved some of the shots he managed to get on the day. So when we got engaged, he was one of the first people we called to discuss what we wanted for our wedding. From that first conversation Leigh put us at ease and really got caught up in the excitement of the wedding so much that by the time the day came he actually felt more like a guest with a really good camera! Leigh and Renata not only captured some beautiful shots of the venues, family and friends but also some more intimate and candid photos throughout the wedding which are among our favourites. The photos have been a great reminder of the day and the album allows to relive it all.'
