Profiling Feature Photographer Natasha Lesonie

This is the start of a new series where we will be interviewing featured photographers and getting an insight into them and their photography. Today we start with the first person Natasha Lesonie.   My name is Natasha,  I am a portrait photographer. How long have you been taking photos?
