-ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER-

LESLIE ROGERS ROSS is a freelance photographer whom dedicates her time and talents to capturing  nature and urban environments. Much of Ms. Ross' work has been curated and sold with numerous top stock photo agencies, including, ShutterStock, Adobe, EyeEm,, 500px, CanStock and the esteemed Getty Images among others..  Leslie has also had the privilege of having her images featured in both print and online editions of Arizona Highways ' travel photography expeditions and has been featured for her artistry in photography in VoyagePhoenix online magazine among other honors.

Leslie was born in NYC, NY and raised in a small suburban town just outside the city in New Jersey. She feels equally at home in the fast paced  life of crowded, vibrant cities as she does in the quiet solitude and vastness of nature.

Leslie Rogers Ross moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1987, continued her career as a Special Eduction teacher (recently retired after 30+ years) and raised two daughters who are now grown.  She admires and respects the unique beauty that is the southwest. United States.  When she is not on a photography trip or workshop and traveling to a distant place, Leslie enjoys exploring  and capturing all that Arizona and other southwest states have to offer.

The art of photography is an all encompassing passion. It encourages the one behind the lens to see, feel and experience their environment in new and varying ways. Seeing all aspects of our world through eyes of respect, awe and gratitude motivate Leslie to explore, photograph, promote and foster this same sense of wonderment, adoration and respect  for the world through the sharing of her images. It is Leslie's sincere hope that we all become stewards of the world in which we live and find a revived respect for our selves, other living things and these gifts given so freely but yet so delicately balanced.
