Les is now a freelance photographer equally at home with fine art, documentary and commercial images. Her photography is most strongly influenced by her own background as an artist, and it is this instinct to assay and reveal the essence of her subject that distinguishes her work. Texture, tone and especially movement are her particular delight.
