About Kwame 

For award-winning film-maker and visual artist Kwame Lestrade, stills photography is where it all began - and what continues to drive him.

A self-taught photographer, he developed his technique as a fashion photographer - using medium-format cameras,  scanning negatives and editing published editorials in 2001.

Fast forward to 2020 and he has developed a vibrant and versatile portfolio across multiple categories - working with brands including BBC, Historic Royal Palaces, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Royal Shakespeare Company, Sainsbury's, Hugo Boss and many others.

"I love how photography can take me anywhere - any situation, any location at any time."

Kwame is based in North London, is an avid reader, pretty decent cook and professional coffee drinker.
