Biography: Lester is a successful TV producer and writer, but through his blogging alter-ego the Sole Digger, he has become one of Australia's leading names in street style.
Lester studied the basics of photography at the University of Westminster, London and developed an interest in reportage and portraiture that led to his "I Dig Your Sole Man" street blog.
"I Dig Your Sole Man" focuses on finding interesting people with eye-catching street-style. Through the project, Lester's work has caught the eye of stores, brands and publishers around the world, and he has plans to expand the project further by upgrading his kit (when funds become available) and travelling to new overseas destinations.
Taken in Melbourne, this stylish guy was a wannabe actor who had just moved to town from Queensland and was off for a casting in his new surroundings. Despite his nerves he was kind enough to pose for a few quick shots. I hope his audition went well.
With her monochrome outfit, this rebellious teenager made a loud statement with her shocking pink All Stars. She had been chasing pigeons in a park moments before these shots were taken, and she was off again once we had finished — the youth of today!
A very eye-catching tattoo artist, this subject was spotted on Sydney's Oxford St on a bright summer's day. I used the abundance of natural light to create the bokeh background with a very shallow depth of field.
Two skateboard buddies who both collect sneakers from around the world. We had shot some portraits and then I took some action shots. I will never know if the mate looking on was impressed or not with the skills being shown off.
A writer who had taken some time out to head to the beach for inspiration; this was the first shot that I took of about eight portraits. I framed the shot to get the guy walking in across the grass bank. Again, only natural light was used.
Remo is a Sydney-based director and artist. A colourful player on the Sydney arts scene, I spotted him while painting some street art of his Femme Fatale "Scar". There is a mirror-like quality to the image which I love.
