about  Leigh  Webber

Leigh Webber is an award-winning photographer based in Charleston, South Carolina who specializes in fashion, travel, lifestyle, and underwater photography. Webber’s underwater photos span the commercial and fine art worlds; the images have been exhibited throughout North America and are held in private collections across the globe. Webber is also a contributing photographer to various publications including Garden & Gun, Coastal Living, and Charleston Magazine, traveling regularly for commercial shoots (especially those where it’s warm and sunny). Her mantra, “Dive In,” permeates every aspect of her work. In her own words, “Dive In is an invitation to the viewer, and a command. It's a reminder to take risks, to go deep, and to get beneath the surface. It is a summons to seek uncertainty, possibility and to find the silver linings in the chaos.”
