My name is Marie Lee, and I’m a Norwegian photographer based in the south coast of Kenya.
Photography has always been a part of my life in some way, but the dream of making it into a living started for full when I was 15 years old and got my first DSLR camera.
A few months later I started studying at Noroff Mediegymnas, a media school where I focused mainly on photography, but also on other mediums.
During that time studio photography was my main interest, and I focused mainly on beauty shots, fashion shoots, artistic nudes and portraits.
I also spent some time working for other photographers, including photographer Linn Nilsen and Polyfoto.
As I’ve spent the last year and a half traveling, and I’ve ended up moving to Kenya, more and more of my time is spent capturing landscapes and wildlife.
Nature is so magnificent, so captivating, and so alive, it keeps me motivated to stretch myself further and further.
At the moment my main camera is a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. With this, the lenses I normally use the most is my Canon 24-105mm and my Sigma 150-500mm.
Although, for me, photography is not so much about the gear you have (even if it of course does make a bit of difference) – it is about the way you capture the light and the techniques you use.
A huge thanks goes out to all the people out there viewing my page and sharing the moments I have captured.
