Creative Lives — Photographer and director Leonn Ward: “Have a strong vision in mind, and just don’t stop until you’ve done it”
It would almost be an understatement to say that Leonn Ward hit the ground running after graduation. She was fresh out of Camberwell College of Art when she landed her first major job, shooting a worldwide print campaign for Adidas Originals. Sought after for her ability to capture a vibrant intimacy that puts individual style and character at the heart of fashion imagery, she has since worked for the iconic likes of Vogue, Isabel Marant and Stella McCartney.

Leonn spoke to us about learning the ropes with an early assisting job, the dedication and clarity of vision that has set her apart, and creating work to make her dad proud.
