Born and raised in the UK, commercial photographer Lee Howell spent several years travelling the world as a Formula One mechanic before moving to New Zealand in 2006 and swapping his spanners for a camera. Not surprisingly, Lee began his photographic career shooting motorsport, but he quickly developed his skillset and is now best known for his stunning portrait work. He has a knack for capturing natural and engaging images of people, and this has helped Lee attract a wide range of top commercial clients.
Late last year Lee landed a plum assignment for well-known outdoor clothing brand Kathmandu. The job involved travelling to New York City in January to create images for the latest Kathmandu winter campaign.
