Life in a beautiful light.

Photograph of Michael Lees

I was born in the UK, in a small historic town called Bath. Anyone watching Bridgerton on Netflix has probably seen my old home in the background. I first got a camera as a teenager, where I learned to take terrible photos. I had no idea what I was doing and it showed. However, after many years of practice, I am now an award-winning photographer, living with my wife and a house full of animals, on the other side of the world in Hervey Bay, Queensland.

For me, a photograph is as much about what is not in the image, as what is. It is my goal to simplify a scene. To take the complexity of the world and distill it, down to its essential elements. To show life in a beautiful light. To guide the viewer through the scene and to allow them to construct their own narrative.
