Lou Lesko

Lou Lesko is an American photographer and writer who accidentally became a CEO when he founded BlinkBid production software.

It all started at the age of nineteen, when Lou worked as fashion photographer under a legendary agent named Michael DeMartini. Later he expanded his métier to include photojournalism so he could travel to splendid places on someone else’s dime.

Lou's work has been published worldwide, and recognized as “pretty gosh darn good” by a few award bestowing associations. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California’s writing program, a published author, a Lowell Thomas Award winner for photojournalism, and a former editor-at-large for National Geographic.
