JESSIE LEONG PHOTOGRAPHY
Photographer who focuses on extraordinary people drawn to adventure, capturing subjects in a reportage & portraiture style.
Born in the North of England, I spent my formative years growing up in a non – mountainous environment in the South. With no mountains to play with, I resorted to creating my own epic stories out of clothes scavenged from my mum’s wardrobe, running across the marshlands and creating an imaginary world in front of the camera.
My interest in storytelling and narrative has continued throughout my career and I developed an extensive portfolio in fashion, commercial & lifestyle photography, working for clients such as Waitrose Magazine, Harvey Nichols and private commissions.
After studying in Yorkshire, I found myself immersed in the outdoors at every opportunity. I no longer felt I needed to separate my passion for the outdoors from my love of photography.
Based in Sheffield, my focus is on documenting a number of varied projects that involve climbing, mountaineering and travel dotted around the world.
My goal in my photography is to show the character, strength and enthusiasm of people I work with.
Whether it’s set along a dramatic alpine setting or bivvying in a hidden cave, I focus on telling the stories of extraordinary people and their relationship with the environment, capturing their enjoyment and wonder of being in the outdoors.
