"The camera is an extension of my head & my heart" - Leesa Maree
Obsessed with her camera and playing with light, Leesa Maree is a photographer and digital creative that loves visual storytelling.
She is passionate about capturing life, people and stories with both her photographic stills and the moving image. She has been a professional photographer for 21 years and run her own successful studios during this time. Leesa has worked in the Film & TV industry in various roles such as Art Director, Director, Assistant Director, Personal Assistant, Stills Photographer and EPK, (behind the scenes shooting).
Leesa's wide skill set traverses through all stages of production, from pre-production to shooting, all the way through to editing in post production. She has assisted and taken stills on set for a number of TVC's & films, and lead a creative team at her production house JamHQ for over 10 years. You can see some of Leesa's video work here.
In following her dreams, as well as in her fathers footsteps, Leesa will continue to document life's stories that surround us each and every day. These stories are what we have to pass onto future generations and are the storytellers of our future. Some purely offering entertainment and escapism, others to inspire, educate & motivate to have positive impact on our evolving world.
Leesa Maree has spent many years focusing her lens in the area of social impact, and worked alongside a number of wonderful organisations and charities. Some examples are Heartfelt, Conscious Conversations, Kids with Cancer, Project Gen Z, Ambisie, Make A Wish, Very Special Kids, Camp Quality & Muso Magic to name a few.
