About Mondo Photography

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”  – Don McCullin 

This quote resonated with founder of Mondo Photography, Des Lewis. when he was studying photography. It has become the cornerstone of his work.

Des firmly believes the art of a good photography is being able to tell a story, one in which emotion and feeling is shared. Whether this be in providing corporate photography, headshots and family portraits, photographing special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries, or sports photography.

Everyone is unique, every scene is different, and each photography session is an opportunity to capture a moment in time and tell a story. It’s what sets a good photograph apart from a record shot.

In his quest to do this, Des provides a very personalised service. He likes to get to know his clients and work closely with them to create special images, which are more than just a picture.

Des is pleased to be able to provide a range of custom photography and writing services for corporate clients, families and individuals. This includes portraits, headshots, events, special occasions, and sports photography, as well as copywriting and photo-journalism.
