LESLEY HOSTE – Being creative was always a part of me.
As a little girl I was always drawing and painting through my years of school.
When I started high school it may not be a big surprise that I choose Visual Art as major. I succeeded but was eager for more. I started and graduated as Bachelor and Master in Photography in Brussels and had my first exhibition that same year in the famous Tour and Taxis.
I love the atmosphere of fashion, lifestyle and beauty sets. It gives me the opportunity to work in my favourite place: My Studio. This is where I feel at home, the place where I like to make it happen: the search for detail, the control over light, the right set up and the perfect picture as a result.
When leaving my studio I love to explore the world. The different cultures and countries give me new input. These experiences will always appear as details in my editorial or private art work.
