My name is Leah Pietra Astore and I’m an award-winning New England-based photographer, filmmaker, and writer.
Growing up in Plymouth (America’s Hometown!) I found my passion in photography, film, and writing at a young age. As I grew I explored them all as a means of expressing myself. A born introvert I’ve always had trouble speaking my thoughts and feelings. It was really writing, movies, and photos that help me find my voice.
Over the years I’ve continued to develop my voice through experimenting and challenging myself with various styles of art and editing.
As a self-taught photographer I picked up a camera and learned as I went. A child of the 90s, my first foray was with a series of random film and polaroid cameras. In college I picked up my first DSLR, a Canon Rebel t4i and used it until I felt I had hit the peak of what I could do with that camera. Once I was ready, I got myself a Canon 5d mark iii and dived into creating art full-time.
My hope and my mission is to capture the beauty I find in the world in everything I do.
In my remaining spare time I like to go on adventures, spend time with loved ones and my cat, listen to music, and read.
I’m always interested in connecting with other likeminded artists. Feel free to say hello: email@example.com
