Wild Earth Fine Art Photography is a collection of wildlife and travel images captured by Lesley Wood during her trips around the world.
Lesley has a Bachelor of Science degree with honours in Applied Biology, with specialism in ecology and conservation. After twenty years working in the private sector as a research entomologist she embarked upon a major career change in 2006 to follow her passion and became a professional photographer.
Under her brand Lesley Wood Photography she specialises in people and animal portraiture, capturing families with their pets and horses out at natural peaceful locations. Her big passion, however, lies with photographing the wild and natural world and this is presented here through her brand Wild Earth Fine Art Photography.
Now an award-winning, fellowship qualified photographer Lesley also trains other photographers at beginner, amateur and professional levels through her seminars, workshops and one to one sessions both in the UK and overseas.
