Lee became fascinated by the natural world and developed an interest in the visual arts at a very young age. He started out sketching and painting in nature, and used photography as an aid to help him in the field. When he reached his teens, photography won out to become Lee’s major passion in life.
Lee has spent many years studying animal behaviour, natural habitats and field locations. This gave him a firm grounding in nature photography.
He became a professional photographer in 1989.
In 1990 he qualified with The British Institute for Professional Photography.
In 1994 with The Master Photographers Association and in 1997 he became
a Craftsman with The Guild of Photographers.
Many of Lee’s images grace the pages of photographic magazines, but of late he has
specialised in producing limited edition fine art prints for sale in galleries across the UK.
Lee first set up his photography holidays and Workshops in the year 2000 after being approached by several photographers wanting to explore the world of nature photography.
He started out running one day sessions, soon extending these into week long holidays and Workshops.
The Workshops were run at various top nature locations around the UK, and this brought Lee to his favourite location of all – Shetland.
He has now taken up residence in what he considers “without a doubt the best location for nature photography in the UK”.
