A self taught photographer, Lee has been interested in photography for over 40 years. During this time, he has worked in B&W, color, prints, slides, 35mm, 6x6 and, more recently, digital. He has also dabbled in portraiture, corporate work, graphic arts, landscapes, seashores, macro, travel and architectural photography.
Lee developed his eye early on in life when, encouraged by his artistically talented mother, he became involved in the arts through the mediums of charcoal and oil. He purchased his first SLR in the late 60’s and he’s never turned back. Recently, he has converted to 100% digital capture. As good as film is, digital allows one to bring out the true essence of what was actually observed at the time of capture and this is what all photographers seek to present.
After spending many years in the business world, he now has the time to search for the beauty in nature and to record it for the pleasure of those who appreciate fine images. His primary venue is his website http://www.leefortier.com and occasional displays in shows and business environments. Through his website, you may leisurely browse hundreds of images in many different galleries.
Lee's work currently hangs in many homes and places of business throughout the country.
Never without a camera, he searches for locations that tell a story. In capturing these images he's able to make them available so everyone may have the opportunity to enjoy them.
