My name is Elena K. Manzo, the face behind the camera. I was born and raised in Ukraine and moved to California later in life. With a degree in Environmental Science and Resources Management, I spent many years working in the environmental field and continue to do so full time, believing that our planet’s environment can be saved one tree at a time. My fascination with photography began at 15-years of age when I met my first black and white film camera. The beauty of the natural world and the diversity of human nature greatly influence my world’s view, my photography, and my writings. I have two beautiful children, a loving husband, two mischievous cats, Bella and Chloe, a bird named Rosie, and multiple reptiles.
