One way or another Lesley Simpson (Photographer), has been gazing through the aperture of a camera lens for more than 40 years, driven by her Father’s passion photography was having a profound influence on Lesley’s life before she could walk or talk. Lesley’s childhood memories are very clear, growing-up
she rarely saw her Dad without his camera, boasting a unique and artistic eye, much like her own, no matter where he was, night or day Lesley’s Dad, (Brian) was constantly peering through the lens of the Camera.
These days it’s Lesley who’s on the creative side of the lens, producing any number of magical snapshots, whether she’s attending a Wedding
in her capacity as a Social Photographer or pursuing her new interests in Advertisement and Product Placement Photography there’s one
thing that separates Lesley Simpson from many of her contemporaries and that’s her commitment and attention to detail, regardless of the assignment.
Prior to setting up her own Photographic Studio Lesley dabbled with all sorts of career options including a fruitful spell with a printing firm where she honed her skills in the fine art of Label Design Imaging, before too long though the wedding photography requests began to dominate her diary, Lesley received numerous invitations from friends and family on a regular basis each one anxious to have Lesley capture the magic of their Big Day.
Interestingly these early assignments came with a little added pressure, you see Lesley’s Dad went along for the ride too in those days, he was especially keen to make sure his daughter wasn’t going to make any embarrassing mistakes, (she didn’t incidentally!), into the bargain as Lesley
was borrowing her Dad’s expensive camera for those early assignments you might say he, (Brian) had a vested interest in nurturing his daughters Development in her chosen field of professional photography.
By 2002 and deciding once and for all that a career in photography was her preferred option Lesley enrolled on a 2 year course in “Professional Photography and Digital Imaging” at Reid Kerr College, she qualified at HND Level in 2004. Following 2 years as a freelance provider to the world famous Kodak Company here in the West of Scotland Lesley eventually upped-sticks and headed down under to begin a new life in North West Australia (Karratha), where she continued to develop her skills particularly in the art of Promotional, Aerial and Industrial Photography thanks mainly to her close working relationship with one of the worlds largest British/Australian metals and mining multinational’s, “Rio Tinto”.
During that period other examples of Lesley’s work appeared in a variety of publications including The Financial Times & The New York Times.
Never one for complacency Lesley recently returned from a Photographic Master Class Series under the tutelage of the renowned photographer Karl Taylor whose eclectic collection has been endorsed by a handful of the worlds leading global corporations.
