Born in Hong Kong and educated in the UK, Alexandra Leese developed an interest in photography after purchasing an old film camera on Portobello Road upon recommendation of her university tutor. After switching her BA degree from Fine-Art to Fashion Photography at London College of Fashion, Alexandra went on to assist renowned photographers in both China & London whilst focussing on her own work and subsequently joining Saint Luke in 2014.
Drawing inspiration from her fine-art background, Alexandra’s eye for colour and composition elegantly captures youthful fashion photographs, with her dual heritage a resounding influence within her editorial and personal work; most namely her recent personal project ‘Boys of Hong Kong’.
Editorial clients of Alexandra’s include i-D, Office, V Magazine, Document Journal, Vogue Italia & Heroine, with commercial clients such as Fiorucci, BLK Denim, Liudmilla & Lane Crawford.
