Welcome! My name is Renata and I'm a photographer, content creator and marketer (among other things!) and I am honored to share my work with you. An extension of my portfolio, my blog shows more photos from each of my shoots with a little bit of context here and there. While I fully believe great imagery needs no explanation, writing has always been part of my creative expression. Porque no los dos?
I went back and forth for years about how or if I wanted to create this platform at all. Creating content for other people and brands has always come naturally to me, but sharing my personal work has always been a struggle as a highly private person.
While the age of COVID-19 has definitely contributed to the proliferation of new creative content (for better or worse, dependent entirely on your level of cynicism) this website reflects work and projects that I've wanted to share for years but never published. Given the circumstances, I think part of me finally let go of the perfectionism that plagues me (pun not intended, I swear) because of this globally forced shift of perspectives and priorities. Losing my own job during this time definitely drove it all home for me: there’s no perfect time to do anything, so just do what makes you happy and share what you love!
Deep down I'm eternally optimistic, but you'll have to sift through the occasionally absurdist gallows humor to find it at the moment since it's looking more and more like we're in the Bad Place.
Jokes-as-a-coping-mechanism aside, I simply love writing, taking photos, and mulling over the intricacies of the digital world. I'm here to share what's in my incessantly busy brain and saturated hard-drives with the hope that they resonate with you in some way. You can more of my work in my portfolio, and check out my other blog posts for more!
If the spirit moves you, I’d love to hear about your passion projects in the comments! What are you doing, or what have you been thinking about starting? Comment below or feel free to contact me personally. I'd love to hear from you!
