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.
