Hi! My name is Leah.
I began my career as an assistant photographer at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Three years later I packed up my bags and moved to NYC not knowing a soul. I was extremely fortunate to land photo editing jobs at Vogue and Men's Journal Magazines. After working in editorial, I moved onto television and worked as a Photo Director for MTV Networks for 6 years. Some friends and I started a gallery space, known as Frontrunner Gallery in TriBeCa, which hosted over 22 shows of emerging artists in NYC from 2010-2012. Additionally, I had the privilege to study under Pultizer Prize photographer , David Turnley.
Through a photograph I tell a story, convey an emotion and do my best to capture someone’s true character. I have always been very curious and photography gives me the excuse to travel, meet people and experience things I would never had had the opportunity to otherwise. I am very grateful to be on this adventure.
When not working, I enjoy hanging out with my little hot dog Sarah, my daughter Emmie Sue, and documenting life in the Mississippi Delta and Atlanta.
Having photographed throughout Africa, and sometimes further afield, for the last decade - through his work Tobin has attempted to not only cover the breadth of the continent, but also the diversity within it. This has included stories on Somalia’s fight against Al Shabab and the country’s emergence from more than 20 years of civil war, to transgender issues, and the intersection of modern religion with traditional healing practices in slums.
I’m a filmmaker, a photographer, an author, a producer and an adventure junkie. I wear many hats within the creative industry and love getting called upon with new ideas and epic concepts. They all seem to overlap. They fill my passport with stamps and they tell real stories, which is what life is all about really; storytelling with different media, although film & photography will always lie at the heart of what I do.
Adventure plays a starring role in all my projects (work & play) and pretty much sums up how I do business. Always pushing the envelope, drawn down the road less travelled and throwing a shit load of energy into all that I do. A good adventurer needs these, as does anyone wishing to create iconic content that makes an impact.
I’m a conversation partner for both international lifestyle brands and agencies, helping them to create content that’s real. Producing media that an audience can relate to and stirs up their lives. I love seeing how my work on athletes has got people off the couch and made real, positive changes in their lives.

I first picked up a camera at the age of 14, spending my time shooting rolls of film and developing images in the darkroom. Immediately after becoming qualified in professional photography I was offered an opportunity with one of New Zealand’s top Audio/Visual production companies. I spent 7 years creating, developing and producing product launches for New Zealand’s largest corporations; using various types of multi-media from theatrical lighting, to video/slide projection and interactive graphics, to set design and the most fun, pyrotechnics. During that time traveling around NZ, Australia and the Pacific my path led me into a period working in television production as a cinematographer and editor.
My passion for photography and the desire to have my own business has allowed me run a successful business for almost a decade.
In my spare time I will be out riding my MTB, surfing, kite surfing, snowboarding and even maintaining MTB tracks. In fact in 2006 I organized the world’s first mountain bike photo exhibition. The exhibition had images shot by the world’s best MTB photographers and was held during the world MTB champs in NZ. The beauty and excitement of this world keeps me traveling and discovering new places as much as possible.

I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the age of 12 or 13, I got a nice toy as a gift: a fancy Kodak Fiesta. Loading 120mm roll film into the “techie” device quickly became one of my passions. Then, a family holiday trip to Machu Picchu, Peru, offered me my first breathtaking location to shoot. Afterwards, I processed the rolls, saw the results and never quit shooting since then.
I travel frequently to shoot assignments in different regions and countries. Traveling around the globe is part of my life and photography style.
My work is usually published by top companies, and publications such as Travel + Leisure, Wall Street Journal, Departures, Gourmet, The New York Times Style Magazine, Fortune, Business Week, Outside, Ocean Drive, National Geographic Traveler, Harpers & Queen (UK), Condè Nast Traveler (UK), Elle Decor (Germany) , Casa Brutus (Japan), among others.
