LEIGH LASKEY – Leigh Benson Photography
My love for photography began when I was 2 years old. My Grandpa gave me an old Kodak Instamatic that no longer worked. I would wander round the house “taking photos” of anything and everything, loving the sound of the click of the shutter.

Fast forward to 2005 - I graduated from Rhodes University with a degree in Fine Art and a major in Photography. I’ve worked with, and for, some of the leading global image agencies including Gallo and Getty Images, Real Time Images, iStock, Reuters and AFP.


As a full time Photographer, I'm inspired by history and art. I’m fuelled by tea and a deep love for capturing the real, the raw, the honest, the candid. I specialise in Family Portraits, Corporate Portrait and Branding, and Weddings.

When I was growing up, having professional family portraits taken wasn't common, and I have almost no photos of my family together. I wish we had more memories to look back on as a family. I fell in love with family portraits and I started my business to encourage other families to exist in photographs. I wanted to create beautiful artwork that would be passed down from generation to generation.

That old Kodak Instamatic still sits on my desk today. I don't believe that photography is just about clicking a button. It's about so much more. For more than a decade I've been able to share stories through my photography, and I can't wait to tell yours.
