What do you do?
You can find my work on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/VanessaSanchezDeTagleFotography/
Life is what inspires me. Everything from meeting new people to scattered rose pedals on the ground. I believe there is beauty in everything if you look close enough. I like to surround myself with positive people and travel as much as possible whether I’m going to the beach or visiting nearby cities. I need to constantly be active otherwise I’d get bored and lose motivation to do anything.
I believe both are very important, but I also believe that investing some time with the piece shows how much effort that was put into it and is more effective to its audience.
My family, close friends and anyone who is passionate about what they do.
I would be Ofelia from Pan’s Labyrinth because I like to get lost and explore unusual places. Except my Spanish is terrible haha!
My best ideas come to me when I am up late at night and when I’m running.
I mainly use my Canon 60D, but occasionally I like to use my Holga or Polaroid camera when I’m feeling adventurous.
Sweet like key lime pie with glass of moscato on the side.
I love to dance hip hop, hiking, running, thrifting, going to shows, and spending time with loved ones.
As I mentioned earlier, I would always carry a camera everywhere I went and try to capture special moments or things that caught my attention. It was my way to make a memory last. I didn’t realize that I had talent until people complimented me on my photos. My grandma was the one who encouraged me to take my photography seriously. Over the years I would always post my work online, but it wasn’t until last year that I had my first solo show at Silicon Valley De-Bug in San Jose where they were kind enough to let me display my photos for the world to see.
Do what makes you happy and don't let anyone or anything hold you back from what you want. Never settle for anything less than what you deserve. Most importantly, always remind yourself why you love what you do.
