Leslie Alejandro⠀began her career in the industry as a makeup artist for celebrity photo editorials and videos, which led her to becoming a creative director for an entertainment/fashion magazine. After being on hundreds of photo sets, her passion for photography led her to taking on photography full time, with work featured in Vanity Fair, Variety Magazine, GQ, Men’s Health, Teen Vogue, Women’s Health, The Wrap, Nylon Magazine, etc.
Alejandro’s existing obsession with film and television and her ability to story-tell through imagery, composition, and stills then led her to pursue her passion in filmmaking. Her directing credits include the documentary short about surrogacy She’s Having My Baby, the short film Smile, starring Kevin Alejandro and DB Woodside, and Adult Night, in which she co-directed with Kevin Alejandro, starring Kevin Alejandro and Lesley-Ann Brandt. All 3 films have received awards at various film festivals.
Alejandro’s docuseries Where You From? made it into the 2021 CNN + Film Independent Original Docuseries Workshop.
