The art of Story.

My story

"I create, because I am created."

I am the camera-mamba-ninja, the light wrangler, a photon cowboy. I tame wild ideas, break concepts in and saddle them up. 

I make eye-poetry.  

This is my service to you: translating thoughts and experiences into visual journeys, using storytelling to connect viewers with the underlying message of a brand, product, person or experience. 

If you want images that truly speak a thousand words, let's connect and make it happen.

Leon has photographed a vast amount of my jewellery that’s on my website. I just love his creative eye and his composition. He knows exactly what kind of look I am after and he gets it spot on every time. Thanks, Leon. You make me look good.

Weddings


Treasuring memories: a new journey beginnings!

Your wedding day is a unique expression of who you are as a couple. It marks the beginning of a new journey.

The sights, sounds, smells, people and details that define your day are planned and well-thought out.  Your photographs should be able to transport you back to the day your adventure started - a reminder of the promise you made to one another.

I love shooting weddings because it gives me the opportunity to tell a different story each time.

If you are looking for "recipe photography" or copies of something you've seen before:  I am not your man.  But if you are looking for something different, something unique and creative that is tailored to you: that is what I do!  

We had the privilege of having Leon take our wedding photos. Class and sophistication, with the utmost professionalism and ingenuity! We had a lot of fun during the photo shoot and could not have asked for any better! The photos are stunning and captured our special day and moments to be cherished forever!
