Meet Anel. She shot some photos for Active Womens recently so we’d like to show some of those photos she took and leave you with a little interview we did with her. See below!


active: hey! so tell us about yourself and where are you from?
anel: My name is Anel. I was born in Pasadena, CA. Currently living in Koreatown

how long have you been shooting photos?
– I wanna say maybe 4-5 years. I lose track of a lot of things

what got you into photography?
– I don’t remember the exact moment I “got into photography.” I mainly recall taking photos at friend’s shows, and shooting bands on the side. I guess a bit of momentum picked up there. And from shooting the city and pedestrians on the street

what camera do you shoot with, what’s your set up like? film or digital?
– Right now, I am using a digital Canon 7D and a couple point and shoots

how do you find these babes to shoot?
– Mainly asking friends to let me shoot photos of them and other times, networking with people online.

what kind of models are you lookin for when you shoot?
– I wouldn’t say I seek a certain look, but I definitely like shooting photos of people who are comfortable in front of a camera. Be it full on modeling or simply having a camera pointed at them

favorite girl to shoot photos of?
– I don’t think I have a favorite. I shot with Emily (Labowe) for the first time and she was awesome. Super natural and obviously gorgeous. Definitely looking forward to shooting more with her

is there a dream girl/guy you would like to take photos of?
– Mmm, not really. Anyone who is down for the get down, honestly

what’s currently on your playlist of music?
– Been listening to a lot of Johnny Thunders lately. But I love all kinds of shit. Amy Winehouse, The Kinks, The Cramps, Morrissey, Drake…..sometimes

let’s talk about skateboarding, how did you get into it?
– I’ve been intrigued by skateboarding since I was growing up. My older brother used to mess around on a board but never really went full force. I guess that was my introduction to it. But as I grew up, and started meeting more people who skated, I eventually got my hands on my own board (which by the way, I stole from a stranger at Venice beach). I really like the history and “culture” of skateboarding, for lack of a better word

well that’s it! any advice for other young aspiring photographers and models out there?
– I don’t have much advice. Keep doing whatever you want I guess. Strive for happiness

Thanks Anel!
