I’m super excited to tell you about a wonderful photographer and fellow Etsian Michelle Lesco from Let’s Go Lesco Photos. Michelle specializes in natural light photography but also dabbles in geometric and abstract mixed media mosaics.
Michelle is a natural photographer with a trans-Pacific background. She says, “By the time I turned 25, I’d lived in 6 places, 5 states and 2 countries. You could say I’m a fiend for travel. No matter where I’ve been, I’ve dove head first into as many art classes as I could find. I’m not good at sitting still and using my hands to create something out of nothing is my favourite way to use my time.” Outside of her small art business, Let’s Go Lesco Photos, Michelle works for a local Sydney non-profit organization, running a 2 person philanthropy department and giving back to her community.
I asked Michelle what inspires her photography and how she got started in the business. Michelle responded “I took my first photography class at 16 and I’m going on 10 years of practice. I learned on an old fashion manual 35 millimeter. From there, I started playing in the growing field of digital work. Then in the last year, I invested in my beautiful new DSLR, thriving with the doors that have been opened with its vast capabilities. If you browse through my art shop or blog, you’ll find that I love taking landscapes most. In particular, beautiful, sandy, ocean scenes are my favourite. A beach at sunset with someone you love? That’s a scene that we don’t forget. I love being able to hand that feeling to someone.”
Here are some of the photos in Michelle’s Etsy shop that I absolutely love:
