Sarah M Lee

Sarah studied English Literature at University College London (UCL) in the late 1990s and used the time not spent in libraries to train herself as a photographer.

She was offered a freelance position at The Guardian in 2000, and has continued to work for The Guardian and Observer ever since. Sarah specialises in portraiture, features and the arts but is interested in all photography that focuses on people and our shared human experience.

Her work has appeared in many publications and places, including the covers of TIME magazine, Billboard, Rolling Stone, The Sunday Times, Intelligent Life and Vanity Fair. Lord Richard Rogers’ practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has also been a regular client.

In the short time Sarah has been on our roster, she has already shot work for clients including Apple, Visa, Cockburn's and Transport for London.

She lives in London with her husband and their dog. Loved ones, friends and photography aside, nothing gives her more pleasure than the long and endlessly humbling process of learning to surf.
