About Ricky Lesser
Growing up in the South Bay of Los Angeles, Ricky Lesser grew up with the wind at his back, the horizon at his doorstep and a sea full of lessons just footsteps away. An avid waterman since a young age, Lessers’ obsession with the ocean and its hidden mysteries would eventually take him from Los Angeles to Hawaii and beyond, eventually dropping him at Brooks Institute in Ventura. There, Lesser would hone his craft as a photographer and a storyteller – utilizing his lens and a sharp eye to capture life’s fleeting moments, truths and whispers. Since graduating in 2008, he has traveled the world, photographing some its most unique locations and people. Lessers’ unique ability to craft story through imagery is second only to his unbridled optimism and enthusiasm for life. He currently resides in Manhattan Beach, surrounded by his greatest muses – his wife Bekah, son Noah and the enduring, domineering Pacific.
