Hi, I am Esteban Leyva.

Esteban Leyva, is Photographer and DoP, living in Oxnard, CA.

My approach to photography is intimate and creative. Capturing the in between moments of life. The fluid moments you can feel - EL 

I've spent a decades working in advertising as a creative director before running off to join the circus of filmmaking and photography. Rose’s distinct voice across both searches for depth of human experience.

Rose’s specialty is assignment work where he’s found himself embedded within documentary projects that have taken him all around the world. Rose shares his knowledge as a Leica Akademie Instructor and is available and highly-interested in creative assignments and commissions of all kinds.
