About


Hello, I'm Gianell! I live in Davao City, Philippines. I'm a freelance photographer. I do weddings and portraits most of the time but I hope to travel more and take tons of travel photos as well. I shoot using both digital and film. My film slr, Nikon FM10 was handed-down from a friend in graduate school.

I'm a lover of natural light, vintage things, old places, the color teal/seafoam green, buffalo wings, and action movies, but also a huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki and all of his works.
