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 a mountainside to find just the right angle for snowboarding and skiing images. I have been fortunate to photograph the Pan Am Games, PGA golf, NHL hockey,  World Championship Gymnastics,  pro skateboarding tour, the tennis tour, Paralympics, CFL, Supercross and many other events. 

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