About: Lee Howell ABIPP

Award-winning commercial photographer and creative retoucher Lee Howell is based in Edinburgh UK, specialising in creative advertising and contemporary editorial portraiture.

Equally at home working out on location as he is in the studio, his work is distinctive and unique in style, producing strong, vivid imagery, using a combination of photographic capture and post production retouching techniques to achieve his trademark style.

"Though I am a photographer first and foremost, I see myself more as an image-maker, using photographic capture to bring together all the elements that go to make up the final image. Creating composited imagery I am under no illusion that these are as much works of fiction, as they are photographs, where it is quite clear to the viewer that what they see before them is not real life but an idea that plays to our preconceptions of what we think something should be like, to which I then usually add an element of romantic escapism”.

No stranger to success his talent has already won him numerous industry awards over the past few years in the categories of advertising, fashion and portraiture receiving acclaim in 2013 for winning the Gold award at the National BIPP Towergate Fine Art Awards, his image 'False Advertising' was awarded 3rd place in the Prestigious IPA Awards 2103, in the category of Advertising, as well as receiving 3 honourable mentions in the categories of Portraiture, Fashion and Beauty.

Last year Lee was awarded his BIPP Associateship in Advertising and Editorial portraiture, as well as securing BIPP Best Student Portfolio 2013.

More recently Adobe named Lee as one of their team of 'New Creatives', featuring his recent TRIBE project on the front of Adobe Inspire Magazine, he was also honoured to be asked to join the Creative ProShow team to talk about his work at their conference in Rome.

Recent projects have featured extensively on various renown online related websites such as SLR lounge and Phlearn, resulting in his website www.leehowellphotography.com regularly getting in excess of 130,000+ page views a month and his Bēhance portfolio has also exceeded 100,000 views and appreciations.

With upcoming commissions in London, New York, New Delhi and Miami Lee's sights are firmly set at the top, further establishing himself as an emerging UK talent.
