Thank you for visiting Ken Leslie Photography, hopefully you have found something to inspire or interest you.
Ken Leslie lives in the Chalke Valley, near Salisbury in South Wiltshire. The valley falls within the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs AONB. It is an area of great natural beauty and provides a wide variety of subjects for a landscape photographer.
Art and nature have been important to Ken since childhood. It is this interest in and enjoyment of the natural world that is the main drive behind his photography.
He took up photography seriously about fifteen years ago as a less time consuming alternative to watercolour painting. The purchase of a 35mm SLR provided a great medium to record the scenes and moments that he wanted to capture. Since then his interest has expanded and his photographic ability has developed to its current level. Ken is entirely self taught.
Landscape photography is Ken's main interest, from classic views through to more isolated details. But all aspects of the natural world are an inspiration.
His photographs have been exhibited regularly in the Salisbury area. In 2008 one of his images was a finalist in the RHS Photographer of the Year Competition. In partnership with the Woodland Trust his photographs have been used in the Woodland Trust's Calendar and as a greetings card by a major high street chain.
