Leanne Boulton has a passion for capturing life and how it interacts with, adapts to and alters the immediate natural environment. Describing herself primarily as a 'People Photographer' she is drawn to capturing those fleeting moments of humanity for better, or for worse. A passionate Street and Social Documentary Photographer, Leanne loves to capture those candid moments that offer a story to the viewer as much as she loves to spend time with someone, crafting the perfect portrait for them.

Leanne provides Street Photography Workshops for those looking to overcome their fears of candid photography or those wishing to expand their street horizons. Details and dates are available on Facebook or Eventbrite.

Next Workshop: workshops currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic - they will return as soon as it is safe.

 

Please note that I am uploading a lot of older shots and re-edited shots that would ordinarily remain in my private collection as I only like to publish my very best work. While I am personally shielding from the pandemic virus and the risks that it poses to me, I am unable to make new photographic works in my usual subject matter. I hope to return to photographing people as soon as it feels safe to do so.

Leanne, love your work. You seem to capture the essence of your subjects and their surroundings. Plenty of chuckles at some of the titles too. Great to see so many photographs of Glasgow.

Wow what a great portfolio of outstanding photographs. So glad you liked one of my pictures and by doing that i clicked on your name and came across these amazing photographs. So thank you Leanne.

The sign of a great photographer, is one of whose images are instantly recognisable as taken by the artist. Leanne has an excellent repertoire of candid and natural street portraits, I'm looking forward to seeing more of Leanne's images, keep up the fantastic work!

I love street photos and your images are just marvelous.

Leanne is one of the best modern Street Photographers that I know. Her ability to capture the every day people on the street, is always an inspiration. Long may her work continue to show "up and coming" Street Photographers how our genre is both an art form and a valued documentary of modern life.

When I think of high quality street portraits I think of Leanne Boulton, journalistic, artistic and full of detail. One of my favourite street photographers on Flickr.

The ephemeral nature of Leanne Boulton's photography lies in contrast with the timelessness of her subjects. Fashions may change, but the boldness of choice remains the same. Rivers of people will flow past unstopped every day. If you take the time to photograph it from a distance, it will feel removed and anonymous. I admire the courage and audaciousness to intervene and temper for a moment the harried state of a city resident. In doing this, Leanne's street photography feels connected and personal.

When I think composition, expression, timing, sense of story or proving street photography is Art .... I think Leanne Boulton.... her subject matter is truly the mark of creative hard thought and self-criticism, in my opinion her art should be displayed in books and gallery's all over the world.
