Ana's passion for photography started in 1972 studying under master photographers at Los Angeles City College, Art Center College of Design, UCLA, and Nikon School of Photography. From 1972-1984 Ana worked tirelessly in photography after hours and on weekends while working for Los Angeles County in management. Once retired in 2012 (after a successful 40 year career in Information Technology and Management as a Division Manager in I.T., with close to 60 technical professionals under her direction) Ana went back to photography school full time, and in 2014 graduated from Tri-Community Photography Center. Ana applies her technical project management background to her work ethics and workflow in photography enabling her to streamline her delivery process.
Ana is a PPA/Certified Professional Photographer, she has a PPA/Masters, Photographic Craftsman, and a PPC/California Masters Degree. Even today, Ana continuously studies from masters in the industry to stay abreast of trends and techniques.
