Hey, I'm Alyssa Leicht.
I want to take some super rad photos of you.

I'm a music photographer based in Des Moines, Iowa, but my cameras and I go anywhere and everywhere. I'm passport-ready and pretty much already packed. Take me on tour!

frequently asked questions

Are you available for tour photography?

Yes, I love going on tour! I've traveled across the US and Internationally. I'm passport ready and globally available. Book me for a couple days or a few weeks, whatever works with both our schedules.

What gear do you use?

I shoot with Nikon D810 cameras and a variety of Nikkor and Sigma Art prime lenses. I also occasionally bring out some fun plastic, vintage, and instant film cameras. Why not?

Who do you shoot for?

I'm 100% self-employed! I shoot independently for a variety of publications, organizations, and clients. I'm a member of The Photo Ladies, a (badass) international collective of women music photographers.

Are you insured?


How do I contact you?

Email me at alyssa@alyssaleicht.com. Feel free to DM me anytime, but please don't DM me to book a session. I don't check DM's every day and I probably won't see it right away.
