Dive In and listent to my first podcast interview! I was defnitely newvous, but absolutely loved talking with Julie and Stacey of A Salty Rim for their GSD Entrepreneur Podcast!

"Leigh Webber is just an interesting human with a fascinating company. She sees the majority of life through her lens, literally, and turns photography into true works of art. She founded a business called Dive In by Leigh Webber, where she’s focused on capturing the beautiful moments of life underwater. Her career in photography started by becoming known as the wedding photographer in Charleston, and she’s now expanded her horizons to become known as the underwater photographer in Charleston and beyond. She’s shot BURU, Carve, products, and families on vacation and models while in the Caribbean, to name just a few highlights. Leigh works hard every day to marry happy moments...

I'm thrilled to be listed as one of Garden & Gun's top 25 Southerners to Follow on Instagram!

"@Leighwebber The name Leigh Webber graced the pages of Garden & Gun’s latest Lakes issue, so you’re probably familiar with the South Carolina resident’s talent and eye for underwater photos. Her images will cool you off—even when the air conditioning and an iced sweet tea can’t seem to offer relief from the summer heat."

Traveling to Lake Jocassee on assignment for Garden & Gun was one of the highlights from last year.

Canoeing, waterfalls, and cliff jumping all piled into one glorious weekend in the mountains of SC.

Thank you for this wonderful write up, Post & Courier!

Leigh Webber wants you to jump, swim and dive in

By Scott Elingburg Special to The Post and Courier

Water creates its own metaphors. If you look and listen closely, you don’t have to work too hard to identify the metaphors; they happen naturally. And, usually, when they do, Leigh Webber is there to capture it with her camera.

"There are a lot of metaphors you can use with water,” Webber says. “And there’s a lot of psychology that goes into photographing people, too. Just in terms of getting them to do what you want them to do for your picture.”

Combining the two elements, water and people, is what Webber has done for a new series of underwater photographs, Dive In. And the combination has stirred up a new creativity in her work.

"This is probably the most artistic thing I’ve done,” she says. "It’s a whole new environment, which...

I was lucky enough to travel to Harbour Island in the Bahamas in earlly April for a photoshoot with Wiggy Kit, a resort wear line out of London.

Wiggy herself is wonderfully creative. She is a postivie force with excellent style and her line of resort wear reflects that.

These behind the scenes photos are from her blog!

Pamela Lesch of Prime Time Pretty is one of the most genuine and heartfelt people I know. She is also one of the most talented estheticians and makeup artists that I know!

I am thrilled to be included in her collaboration with Diana Deaver, "The Photographer Project". Pamela worked her makeup magic on me and then I sat for a portrait by Diana. It was an incredible experience to be on the other side of the lens and makeup brush like that!

I loved answering her interview questions as they really made me sit down and think. Read below for my interview and go here to see more from this project!

Established December 28, 1748, the Charleston Library Society is one of the oldest libraries in the United States. I was thrilled to be asked to photograph their guest of honor, Julian Fellowes- who was most gracious and entertaining, on his grand tour of Charleston, SC!

It's always fun to see my photos in use! Last summer, I photographed the RESORT 17' Bumby Collection for Marysia here in Charleston. We did photos on land and underwater.

We were lucky enough to shoot at two adjacent houses on Sullivans Island that each has their own pool. Kids + 2 pools! + fashion = it doesn't get any more fun than this!

As someone who is used to being behind the camera and not in front of it, my first TV appearance was a little nerve wracking. But in all honesty, it was more exciting than anything.

I was flattered to be asked to come on and talk about the photos I'd taken here in Charleston during hurricane Matthew.

Proceeds from the fine art prints I am selling will go to benefit the Historic Charleston Foundation. Prices start at $150 and you can purchase them at shop.leighwebber.com.

Thank you to Garden & Gun for the feature of my photos, "Hurricane Matthew: Dispatch from Downtown Charleston" on both on their website and in their weekly newsletter, "Talk of the South".

I love that they used the photo of the palm tree in front of the Charleston court house on Broad Street. The palm is the symbol for the state of South Carolina and this photo feels very iconic to how Charleston has stood strong over the years.

Four select photos from this series are available as limited edition fine art prints. The proceeds will go to benefit the Historic Charleston Foundation for repairs caused by hurricane Matthew.

It is a total honor to be featured on APhotoEditor.com I met with Jonathan Blaustein at PhotoNOLA a couple of weeks ago and got some pretty hard core criticism as I showed him images from my series, “Collect Moments Not Things”. I’m not sure anyone’s ever been so directly honest about my work. With a little time, I realized that as much as it hurt to hear his opinion, it was also some of the best advice I’ve ever gotten. Thankfully, at the end of our conversation, he gave me the opportunity to come home and send him a re-edit of 8 images that might be more tightly connected and I took that challenge to heart. So I’m pretty excited to have my work featured on A Photo Editor today.
