Leo Patrone

A BIT ABOUT ME

My name is Leonardo but you can call me Leo!

My son: Frank,  a perfect long haired 4-year-old creature with a personality that fits his name a to the t. (this is where I drop the mic.)  #PROUDPARENT.

My process:  Besides photographing lifestyle and destination weddings for over 10 years, I’ve been running my own photo lab for the last 8 years. I personally develop and scan all of the films that I shot. I love learning and improving every steps of the analog and digital process of developing films.

Birth:  I was born and raised in a city by the Atlantic Ocean called Mar Del Plata in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Yes, Spanish is my first language! That’s why you’ll hear a little accent here and there when I speak English.

My hobby:  I’m passionate about collecting vinyl records and cassette tapes. I also have random gift for remembering album names and the release years. If you know anything productive, I could do with this talent let me know.

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

TRAVEL:  ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO FOR A LIVING!  DIVING INTO NEW CULTURES LENS FIRST AND COMING HOME EACH TIME WITH A GREATER SENSE OF THE WORLD IS SOMETHING I AM ENDLESSLY THANKFUL FOR.  THE AMAZING NEW FRIENDS I MAKE ALONG THE WAY, LANDSCAPES I TAKE BACK WITH ME ON FILM, AND GAME CHANGING EATING ADVENTURES ARE ALWAYS A BONUS!

FOOTBALL (SOCCER):  The most important of the non-important things in life!
