Simon R Leach

Lifestyle Advertising Photographer

Specialising in an aspirational lifestyle for advertising, working with established brands and distinctive start-ups.






An aspirational lifestyle, refined and sophisticated, but attainable.

Inspired by elegance and light, crafting photographs that are simple and tactile. Ideas alone are not enough for me, using the technicalities of the medium and the tools at my disposal I believe the photographer needs to take control in creating the final image. The light and a consideration of my current influences are important for me to understand and use as a creative visual communicator, they help to make the images engaging. Informing my vision, my craft, my communication, my photography, I grasp new opportunities and challenges, there is always something new.

It could be said I have done many things, but always first is that I am a photographer and it has been that way for some time. I first picked up a camera around the age of 7 and started a professional apprenticeship at 16. I have worked as a photographic printer, a freelance assistant and studied at Blackpool College. Whilst you never forget the journey, it is not what I focus on.

"It's not about me, it's about photography."
