Photography has taken me all round the world and has given me many opportunities, and it’s often surprising how building a relationship somewhere often leads you off in another direction.
I have worked in the Bahamas, Canada, Australia… eventually settling back in the UK.
Where I like to think I am different is being able to deal with all kinds of people – from the man on the shop floor of a factory to the CEO of a plc company.
I have shot a vast selection of people and products whether that be on location or in a studio.
I love the challenge of a shoot when you turn up and you often find you have a limited time to get that all important shot. Or you are asked to climb halfway up a mountain in Wales to cover an event.
Images can be very powerful and when backed up with excellent journalism they can take the reader on a fantastic journey.
Having freelanced at Future Publishing in Bath for the past ten years I have had the privilege of working with some great people on various magazine titles and have been part of the digital change over during that time.

Having used Simon’s photography on several different projects, I can heartily recommend him. His professionalism and vibrant personality shine through whatever he’s working on.”
Gregor MacGregor, On Your Bike/BikeRadar Website Editor
Simon is one of my favourite photographers to work with as a day shooting with him is never dull and you always get fantastic images at the end – that’s why I’ve kept working with him for more than 10 years! Whether it is in the studio or on location his relentless enthusiasm and professionalism helps get you through even the most difficult of shoots. His outgoing personality helps put any subject at ease and lets you get the perfect shot. He’s great at taking direction but is also always keen to give his input to help make the shot even better.”
Simon Lees comes highly recommended by me! He turns up on time with all the gear and works fast at putting it all together, checking the work spaces and light options. His time and excellent quality of work is reasonably priced. I’ve also seen him shoot two weddings and the energy he puts into it is amazing.”
Rosy Hall, Proprietor – The Bathwick Boatman Restaurant
Simon is a talented and approachable photographer. His work produced for Future, over the many years we have worked together is both technically perfect and creative. He listens to the brief but adds flair. Simon photographed my wedding, his shots were stunning. Not only did he take beautiful pictures but he managed to capture the feel of our day. After working with him for almost 9 years I can truly recommend his skills.”
