Hi, I'm Monica! I am a commercial and editorial photographer specializing in portraiture, lifestyle, and visual storytelling. I've been living in San Francisco for 15 years, and before that I was born, raised and educated in Romania. I'm deeply in love with the outdoors and with California. It's not perfect, but I'm proud to call it home, and continue to be surprised and in awe at its vast majestic wilderness. I'm an avid outdoorswoman, and advocate for sustainable living and mindful stewardship of the earth. I have dual citizenship (EU and USA), I've backpacked around the world for a year, I am fluent in three languages (English, German, Romanian and a good amount of Spanish), and I'm available to travel, especially to off the beaten path places. When I'm not on a shoot, I love to go climbing, backpacking, riding my bicycle or motorcycle.
I'd like to shoot more projects where I can use my visual storytelling skills for social change.
Thank you for stopping by!
