My name is Janina but most people call me Gigi. I am one of the photographers here at 139:14 IMAGES. Aside from being passionate about photography, here are 5 fun facts about me:
A creative by heart and an artist since elementary age. My passion for photography came when I was 14 when I realized taking photos of a subject/s is a lot easier than painting or drawing it. ;)
A transplant from the Philippines and now a Californian since 2004—although I’ve lived in MO, AR, & FL, California will always be one of my favorite states.
An avid sunrise and sunset gazer, a beginner hiker, and a lay-at-the-beach and soak up the sun addict. I often draw fresh and new inspiration from nature.
Often mistaken by others as of Thai-decent. I never complained or even correct them considering I do LOVE Thai food (can you say Papaya Salad!!) and Thailand will always have a special place in my heart.
Usually prefer savory foods versus sweets any day. If I was given a choice between a bowl of ice cream or a bowl of green mangoes, I’d always choose the later.
Cheeeuuuuuuuu! What’s up!
I’m David or DT and besides being one of the photographers here, I usually deal with the business side of 139:14 IMAGES. Here are my 5 fun facts…
I grew up with an amazing Art Teacher for a mom and at a young age, was exposed with impressionism and surrealism art.
2. Participated in competitive sports for years which led me to acquire a great eye for action sports photography.
3. Always a student of light and as a professional photographer, I am constantly training to use and manipulate light that best fit my subjects whether that be people, products, real estate or architecture.
4. A chef for fun and loves experimenting in the kitchen with different spices and ingredients. I’d like to believe I can make a mean carbonara.
5. Skated down one of the steepest and fastest mountain passes that North America has to offer.
