I am Leigh Webber and I have been a photographer for 20+ years. Many of those years have been spent photographing weddings and portrait sessions for families living in and visiting Charleston. I’ve also photographed a wide variety of editorial and commercial shoots along the way.
In 2018, I launched my new branding, DIVE IN, to better express who I am as an artist and photographer. If you’ve known me a long time, then you know I have a new logo and you might be wondering why.
The Back Story - In 2015, I began photographing underwater while doing a 365-day project. It was as a way to challenge myself and to flex my creativity. But, it did a lot more than that, it totally changed my approach to photography.
You see, when photographing underwater, there is a loss of control- over your environment, your subjects, your camera. Communication is difficult and nothing stays still. As a result, I had to learn to trust the process, to let go, to allow serendipity to come into play.
After 20+ years as a working photographer, I gained the confidence to be an artist.
What to Expect - I enjoy photographing a wide variety of assignments and bringing a fun, authentic experience to each one. Whether we're creating lifestyle imagery for your new product or destination, creating custom underwater fine art of your children for your home, or traveling on assignment, I will dive right in and give you my all.
“Dive In is an invitation to the viewer, and a command. It’s a mantra to remember to take risks, to go deep and get beneath the surface. It is a summons to seek uncertainty, possibility and to find the silver linings in the chaos.”
