About Me - Lea Photo

Lea Photo

I am an Ottawa based freelance photographer with a passion for capturing the exciting, emotional aspects of sports and entertainment. I look for the magic, approaching my craft with creativity and technical knowledge. I am a professional dedicated to catching those special moments from my place at the edge of a soccer pitch, a football field, and opposite the net at the hockey rink ; a dancer in mid-leap, a gymnast tumbling across the floor or a SuperBike rider rounding the curve. I scramble up mountains to find just the right angle for snowboarding and skiing images. I have photographed surfers at Huntington Beach, California and skateboarding athletes in the local parks.

I began my professional photography career several years ago photographing weddings, portraiture and fashion shoots. While I enjoyed financial success and client appreciation, I have come to realize that sports and action photography is my true passion.
