Who is Paul D'Ambra?

My name is Paul D’Ambra from La Lente and I am a professional freelance photographer in Sydney based in the Eastern Suburbs, the owner of La Lente. You won’t read paragraphs filled with cliches, it isn’t really my style. My story is fairly simple – I love taking photos.


My early interest in photography began as a teenager where my curiosity was sparked during my first trip to the Daintree Rainforest in Far North Queensland. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to take photos from around the world in a raw style vs heavily post edited Photoshop illusions.


In 2015 I discovered I had Dysthymia, a form of anxiety and depression. To combat this I made the life changing decision to leave my 20+ year corporate career and turned my passion for taking photos into my way of making an enjoyable living putting smiles on faces.
