Formerly operating as Sandy Lee Studio, Gallois Photo was founded in 2020 by Sandy Lee Welsh.

Rebranded and reborn after a transformative sabbatical in France, Gallois (galles·ois) is the French translation of her married name. An ode to the slow, sunny days of self-discovery and self-expression; a cathartic experience that evolved her artistic eye, effortless storytelling, and forever changed her perspective of what it means to live simply and joyfully each day, the Gallois ethos.

Welsh is a hybrid digital and film photographer, curator, and art director. She shoots a diverse range of subjects for lifestyle, commercial, and editorial clients, all with a fine art approach and clean, refined aesthetic.

Traveling is her biggest source of adventure and inspiration. However, she’s grateful to retreat to a home and community in which she attributes much of her joy and creativity — idyllic Santa Barbara, California where she resides with her husband.

She enjoys reading historical fiction, running, farmers markets, hosting and entertaining, Burgundian wines, floral and interior design, and a refreshing dip in the ocean.
