Lindsey Harris

Photographer in Dorset, UK

Photo of autumn leaves by Lindsey Harris.

I live in Poole, Dorset.

Documentary and street photography is my preference, in addition to botanical imagery and landscapes.

I’m a member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), which represents a broad range of media professionals.

Since February 2012 I have been working on ‘The Lower Parkstone Photographic Project’, which photographically documents the various businesses of Lower Parkstone in Poole, Dorset. This is a ‘snapshot in time’ – a work still in progress, although I aim to exhibit my photos publicly.

My photos have been purchased by the public, estate agents, solicitors and charities, amongst others. I also regularly work to commission.
