About Leigh Nicholas
It is truly wonderful when you discover a pursuit that totally works for you – and photography is that for me. I am relatively new to photography but I love exploring what I see through the camera lens. The more I learn and practice, the more I want to explore and grow. In photography, I'm a visual explorer, discovering ways to show elements in my life I am most passionate about: plants, the sea, nature and scenic NZ.
My career as a landscape designer/gardener has imbued in me a love of plants, an appreciation for the intricate beauty of flowers and an unceasing amazement at patterns created by nature. I live beside the Pacific Ocean observing the daily shift in sea moods that fill me with a sense of wonder. It is a privilege to be able to experience the natural environments NZ has to offer; from our majestic native forests, to wild alpine regions, to dynamic coastlines.
It is my pleasure to share with you my photographic versions of these.
