Hello and Welcome

Photographer, mum and self confessed chocoholic, this is me, Leisa Hale.

My story as a photographer stared like this… I worked as a travel agent for many years before I realised that life was too short to be doing work I really didn’t enjoy. So I took a massive leap and enrolled in a Diploma of Arts-Photography at Moreton Institute of TAFE and graduated in 2001. I have been working as a photographer ever since and have loved every minute of it.

As you can imagine I now have a vast portfolio of work consisting of travel, portraiture, fine art and landscape photography some of which I have even won some awards for. I have tried many different positions as a photographer, from owning my very own photography gallery in Huskisson, Jervis Bay to working for studios in Sydney, Brisbane and Ireland. My work has been featured in magazines such as Vintage Bride, Women’s Health and Fitness, Backpacker and Lotta just to name a few.

More recently since becoming a mum in early 2010 I have moved back to Queensland, and focused primarily on my real passion… photographing people doing what they love. Be that in love, life or work I can be there to capture the real essence of the moment for people.

When I’m not working, I am usually hanging out with my cheeky little Miss Ella and my boisterous Labrador Ozzie.

Business Photography that Stands Out


I have 14 years experience as a photographer, a Diploma in Arts – Photography and am an accredited member of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers).


I offer a mobile service, and will travel to your business location.  I will guide you through the process from beginning to end and make it as easy as possible for you.


Having beautiful visual imagery on your site is one of the easiest ways to stand out from the crowd. As a photographer, no one understands this more than me.  The more appealing your product photos look, the more you will sell.

Here’s what my clients say…

“A huge thank you to Leisa for capturing the exact personality I wanted for my new website. Leisa is friendly, really listens to your needs and delivers. Her photos are beautiful and I would absolutely use her again and recommend her work to anyone wanting amazing photos.”

Angi King

“I had my first ever professional shots done by the amazing Leisa Hale. I was a little nervous, as I was not sure what to expect or even what kind of shots I wanted. Leisa was great. She put me at ease, was gentle and encouraging, as well as honest about my ideas; what would work and what wouldn’t. I was really happy with my shots and highly recommend her to anyone wanting professional shots that represent them and who they are. Thanks Leisa.”

Leisa has photographed for me three times now, initially for portraits of my son and I and more recently for my business. Every time she has managed to capture a natural,original and carefree essence with not a hint of stuffiness, her creativity and eye for detail is quite amazing, I am so very appreciative of her work and feel very lucky to have such amazing photos that I will treasure forever. I highly recommend Leisa for anyone looking for a truely professional yet pleasurable experience.

Your point of difference in imagery…

First impressions count. Using professional photography on marketing material and social media is your opportunity to convey professionalism, elevate yourself above the competition and reinforce your branding message.

I specialise in natural, creative and contemporary photography and would love to work with you to create images that reflect your personality as well as your business brand.

I am a professional portrait photographer with 15 years experience and an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers.

We have engaged Leisa Hale twice for our professional profile photos. Leisa has been able to capture the essence of our brand in the photos she took. They are beautiful, natural yet very professional. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Leisa as a photographer and would not think of using another photographer. Thank you Leisa for your work!
