About Lee Searle
A short introduction to Lee Searle
Lee Searle has built a successful career as a professional photographer in Cornwall combining his love of telling stories through photography with his unique personal style.
While recovering from a serious illness in his late teens, his Uncle handed him a camera and that was the beginning of a love affair with the lens, using light to create spectacular images.
Working in a camera shop gave Lee the chance to shoot images and process them quickly and a picture snapped one day changed his hobby into a profession.
“I was on my way to work one morning when I captured a silhouette of some fishermen pulling in a boat. I got my first sale from this image in a local store as a greetings card. I earned about £5 but it was something.”
He is highly respected by other professionals and regularly reviews photographic equipment.
Based in Cornwall, Lee takes every opportunity to capture the stunning Cornish landscape and changing light. If there is a big storm you are likely to find him out in the wind and rain capturing the ferocity of the waves.
What makes Lee stand out from the crowd is his instinctive and natural style combined with his easy-going and humorous personality which results in his wedding clients sending him genuine, heartfelt testimonials time after time.
“Thanks so much for being so great on our wedding day and providing us with an emotional collection of wedding photography images. You were really flexible and got stuck in with all the goings on, you made us all feel completely at ease. It was brilliant to see your enthusiasm about the awesome photo opportunities!” — Rachel and Gavin
He meets with all his wedding clients personally and works with them to create a memorable album of the wedding from beginning to end, capturing the moments that occur naturally throughout the day. He has an innate ability to put people at ease and understand what they want as well as injecting his own unique style into the resulting images.
However, it is not words that will show you what a great photographer he is; Lee’s images speak for him.
