Self-taught photographer, Léo Pierre was born in 1993 and grew up in the French Alps, where he spent most of his time outdoor between forests and mountains. From his childhood, he kept a passion for nature, which lead him to study biology and to graduate in two master’s degrees in this discipline.
After saving up for several years, he bought his first camera at age 18 at the occasion of his first trip alone on the roads of Madagascar where he started capturing lights and faces. Since then, his camera never left him. From Asia to North America and Africa, he seeks to convey through his work the atmosphere of the places he crosses, with a particular interest for the human beauty. With great affection for photojournalism, he now wants to take the next step: be a full-time photographer to continue telling the stories of our world while keeping his biologist eyes and his sensitivity to environmental questions.
