About Me

Steve Lees

I have spent my life involved with colour and photography, with my formal training in colour reproduction, calibration and education.

Photography started as a hobby I fell in and out of my entire life, but for the past decade and a half I have found myself getting more and more involved with the art, mainly through my work. As such I have done many product shoots for various companies, from restaurants through to festivals.

With formal training in colour reproduction for the graphic arts, my career took me towards a life of colour calibration for high end scanners and printers, and ultimately to teaching colour to those involved in high end digital printing. Today I build websites for a living, but am frequently asked to do product shots for those same clients, as well as shooting for the pure pleasure of photography.

To date I have shot everything from product photography for restaurant food, hi-fi and components, through to festivals/events, modelling, resorts, cars and rock bands.

I started in the 2000s with a full Nikon D70 system and several Nikon and Sigma lenses. The moment the Canon 5D MkII came out with it’s extraordinary video capabilities, I made the switch to Canon. When Sony announced the A7R, I knew it was for me and purchased the A7R along with the few lenses available upon release. I have since upgraded to the far superior Sony A7R MkII and sold a few lenses to afford a couple of G Master lenses. A Sony A7R MkIV is most definitely in my future!
