Athena Medrana

Out there lies the beauty that awaits me so I can capture it Thank God I have a life!!! Photography, Art, Food, and Travel, the spices of my life.

I’m a freelance photographer who loves taking pictures of nature and human interest. My home base is in Maryland, USA. I was born in the Philippines and I graduated from the College of the Holy Spirit with a Bachelor in Fine Arts, major in Advertising.
My passion with photography started during my adolescent years. With a point and shoot camera, I learned the basics of taking pictures. And what’s so awesome was that my family loved to be photographed!
Photography became my learning tool in exploring history, culture and admiration for Mother Nature’s beauty. Photography is an art, it is a composition, a keepsake… every image depicts a story…. of joy, beauty and good life!

Ansel Adams whose works I adored, once told his students, "It is easy to take a photograph, but it is harder to make a masterpiece in photography than in any other art medium."
I love shooting black and white photos. Grayscale tones unfold a drama that captivates the affective domain of the audience. Using natural or ambient light has always been my preference whenever possible. Capturing every moment unobtrusively is what I do best. I aim for that “money shot” and I’ll go above and beyond just so I can create one.

Well, what else did you want to know about me? Traveling has always been a priority, ever since! I love watching movies. I consider myself an epicurean. I love to eat and I am very adventurous when it comes to food. Each flavor of any dish that I taste is like a palette of colors to me, like an art work, I will say. And you bet… I am exuberant and optimistic, and it reflects in my work, no doubt!
So here I am at your service, my creativity might tickle your fancy!
