Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting.
I am Leon Besaans, Lifestyle Photographer.
I am authentic
Telling passionate stories about nature and people is what I do through my camera lens. I capture inimitable moments in time that can only be retold in pictures.
My work is unconditionally natural, colourful and modern. I never risk taking the natural essence away from a special moment with artificial post-production adjustments.
I use flash – as a matter of fact, I love flash – not in a way that you will notice. My secret? I blend the ambient light and merely lift contrast with flash. Of course, I am not totally blind to natural light photography, and will look for those moments when they are presented to me.
My work finds me in interesting places, meeting interesting people – the driving force behind my passion.
I am Nikon
I use my trusty Nikon full frame cameras with a full set of professional lenses and flashes. I expect the unexpected – I carry a spare Nikon body and flash in case something goes wrong.
I generally work alone, but that all depends on the requirements and the type of event.
Sadly, I have no passion for videography. Video is unfortunately not part of my service offering.
I am passionately understanding your expectations
For weddings, I absolutely insist on a meeting to discuss your expectations and requirements. I advise my clients to do an engagement session, as that will give us the opportunity to spend some time together and get a complete understanding of what you’d like to see on your special day.
In my quest for authenticity in my photography, I do not use baits or calls to attract animals on nature shoots. Everything is done 100% naturally.
Making things easy for everyone
I will only provide you with a cost estimate after a consultation – your expectations are the main considerations and I need to ensure my delivery is aligned accordingly.
I ask for a 50% deposit to confirm your booking and thereafter, 25% one week before shoot day. The balance of 25% is due on completion of the digital / printed images.
