Meet Elena, NYC-based photographer

Elena loves shooting in nature because there are endless ways to incorporate it and its beauty into her photography. She also loves the challenge that comes along with working with natural light. It changes every hour and by knowing how to manipulate the light, she can create something naturally beautiful. I think being an entrepreneur is great because the possibilities are endless. She can be as creative and innovative as she want to be, and the results are incredibly rewarding.
