I'm based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Working from my fully equipped, professional studio in Garforth, I offer an extensive range of photographic styles, develop model portfolios and provide Training and Development for both photographers and models.

My large, well equipped studio is available for hire. With nearly 600 sq ft of air conditioned space, we can accommodate a wide range of projects.

I shoot in a range of styles....including: Glamour, Boudoir, Fashion and location work. I'm very experienced in portfolio work and regularly book shoots for models wanting to add quality images to their book.

Shoots with models are usually paid commissions (ie...where I am paid as the photographer)....although I do sometimes accept TFCD

As most of my work is on a commission basis, I offer TFCD shoots very occasionally and on the following basis:
• All images remain my copyright (Mike Lester Photography)
• The model receives JPGs of the entire shoot along with a selection of photoshopped images for use on her site/page. Images are provided online through a password protected link, usually within 10 - 15 working days.
• I will also provide up to six additional photoshopped images of your choice from the shoot for website use.
• Images can only be used by either party for self promotion.
• You are free to use images as part of your portfolio. They cannot be displayed on a subscription or pay site that provides you with income and cannot be used for any purpose where payment is received without consent on both sides.
• All images must be credited to Mike Lester Photography.
• No payments will be made in respect of the shoot or other expenses

I also provide a wide range of Studio and Photoshop training days for photographers. Please see my website for full details.

I'm always open to ideas and looking for interesting shoots and projects. Why not get in touch to discuss a shoot together.

For full details of the services on offer please visit my website or send me a message. I always reply :-)

I had a super shoot with Mike! 
His pro studio is warm, comfortable and well equipped and Mike is a perfect host.  You can't go wrong working with Mike, he's a great photographer with a charming personality.  He knows exactly what he's doing and keeps the shoot fun and professional.  I highly recommend him and the studio.  Thanks Mike
