Lisa Leslie, Photographer & Writer

I view the world through the eye of a lens. The textural complexity of a flower study, the flawless arc as a dolphin clears the water, the essence of a child’s personality revealed in a perfect instant – I feel compelled to capture the beauty that surrounds me.

I am based in South Africa’s Garden Route, one of the most spectacularly beautiful places on earth. Since completing my National Diploma in photography, I have been fortunate to have worked across multiple genres. From the high gloss pages of travel and lifestyle magazines to gritty newsprint, my images have appeared in a wide variety of publications.

I have also penned hundreds of articles over the past 15 years, writing primarily about nature and travel within the Garden Route and Klein Karoo region, while also covering many important conservation issues, including the threat of invasive alien vegetation and marine and wildlife concerns.

I am passionate about children and love documenting their free spirits and unadulterated joy from birth and beyond. 

An ardent conservationist, photographing and writing about the environment and the various eco-tourism destinations of South Africa fulfils my intense love of the natural world.
