Portrait Photography

Portraiture for both the private and corporate sectors, plus National and International Advertising Campaigns all form part of Les’s vast experience of photographing people. His association with Ida Kar, the Internationally renown Portrait Photographer and his participation with KarSEC, in the late 1960s’ proved an invaluable experience.

His training with Zoe Dominic, Britains leading Art’s Photographer and John Timbers, assistant to Lord Snowdon, has proved a sound foundation of experience for Les. This has evolved into his work now being in the National Portrait Gallery’s collection.
