Hi, I'm Lesley: a scientist, engineer, photographer, dog lover, kayaker, and Washingtonian. My passion for photography was sparked in high school and college, which grew deeper while traveling around the world documenting my adventure with my 25 year old 35 mm camera. This culminated in a Certificate in 2018 from The Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, Washington.
One of the things I love about photography is that it allows me to utilize my science background to achieve what I want in my images.
I love the varied textures found in all sorts of items: tree bark, cacti, old machines, and the aging pipes and wiring in the basement of my mid-century house.
I am keenly interested in showing off the beauty in all things, especially things that most people would just walk on by and not notice (or pass off as ugly).
I predominately shoot locally in Seattle and the surrounding areas. I have a dog named Kevin Bacon who patiently waits outside my photography studio while I work.
