I am passionate about creating story-telling images that you will cherish, and will want to proudly display in your home.
Based in Portslade, East Sussex, I have been a photographer for 5 years. In that time I have photographed numerous families, weddings and events, both by myself and working collaboratively with other photographers. Whilst the majority of my work finds me in the South East of England, I love to travel and have had the amazing blessing to have travelled to Kenya and taken pictures of children in school whilst there.
It is important to me that you feel comfortable with having your picture taken and enjoy the experience. All of my shoots are on location and I encourage you to pick somewhere that means something to you. Your photographs should tell your story, they shouldn’t be about the poses you “have to have” or the way you have been told to stand. With a high level of emotional intelligence, I can tell if you are worried, and have a number of tricks up my sleeve to make sure you feel at ease.
I care about people and am currently undertaking a year of running events to raise money for Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, a hospice that is local to us in Sussex. I am also working on a personal photographic project showing the work of the Street Pastor team in Brighton, a group of volunteers who look out for people on night out, make sure they are safe, and make sure that they can get home.
My own family are used to me taking pictures everywhere, whether it is with my camera or my trusty i-phone. I share a lot of recent work, and an insight into our life, on my Instagram feed, please do follow me @lelhurstphoto
