Necessity is the mother of invention, and LEE is one such company that was born out of the need for better lens filters in the camera industry in the 1970s. When cinematographer David Holmes felt the growing desire for more effective camera equipment, he traveled around the globe in order to gather research and manufacturing expertise for lens filters. He began experimental development with modern polymeric materials and hit a wave of reliable filters for TV and film production. Mr. Holmes' initial pioneering intent of research and development is one that has remained at the core of LEE, which still strives to engineer breakthroughs and offer innovation to the world. Since its official inception in 1978 though, LEE filter starter kits have been backed by considerable investments to provide for the constant focus on reliability and longevity. These factors are responsible for the distinct global standards that LEE delivers.

Most of these filters are handmade and offer a range of picture manipulation techniques.
