Hi, I'm Leonardo!
I was born in Lima, Peru and and have been based in Vienna since 2006 working between Europe and South America.
I was 19 years old when I started working professionally as a photographer for various magazines between journalism, lifestyle and fashion.
I like the honesty as a quality in my photography, the more natural and authentic the more beautiful and intense. As a photographer you have to understand the rhythm of the emotions in every person or event.
I learned journalism and photography in my communication studies at the Catholic University of Peru. My journalistic background allows me to articulate stories in pictures in an artistic and emotional manner.
My work is a blend of photojournalism, fine art and portraiture. I love photographing weddings and also offer family portraiture, engagements, pre-wedding and Food photography.
“Photographing weddings is something magical and exciting. Everyone is in touch with their emotions, every detail has been carefully taken care of. No matter where I direct my camera there is always something beautiful to photograph.”
I love to photograph people
I thoroughly enjoy food photography and have worked alongside some of the world's most renowned chefs such as Diego Muñoz, Asushi Tanaka and Soren Selin.
