Multi-awarded writer and photographer Lester V. Ledesma uses his camera as an excuse to poke around and explore. Based in Singapore, he has worked for the likes of T+L Southeast Asia, Conde’ Nast Traveler, Asian Geographic and many other regional publications. Lester’s assignments have taken him everywhere from the Himalayas to the South Pacific in search of culture/heritage stories and local eats. He also leads photography workshop-tours to camera-worthy locations throughout Asia. He runs a coffee farm, by the way – because he really really loves his caffeine.
