MEET OUR SUMMER INTERN, ELENA!
We have seven amazing summer interns this year at Brianna Gamble Photography, and Elena is the second one we are featuring this week in our 7-day intern "About Me" series. If you missed Maddy's post from yesterday, you can find it here.
Elena has shown us that she is responsible, determined, and as sweet as can be. She is also dedicated to her friends and family, her education, and helping others. Read on to learn more about her!
Where are you from?
Tell us a little about yourself!
I’m almost 17, and I’ll be a senior at Davis Senior High School next school year! I love listening to music, hanging out with friends, and taking pictures, which is why I’m so excited to do this internship this summer! I heard about it on Instagram, and I immediately knew that I wanted to apply. I’ll also be participating in an international service program this summer where I go to Ecuador to teach English, do a community action project, and generally learn about their culture.
What do you love about photography?
While I love many different types of photography, I enjoy portrait photography the most. It’s always so enjoyable to me to be able to capture really special moments or emotions in a photograph, and I also really like the retouching aspect!
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about learning new things, which is why I’m so grateful for this opportunity to learn more about photography, marketing, and running a small business.
What are some small things that make your day better?
Petting my dog and running into friends!
What’s the last adventure you went on?
My family and I drove to Southern California this past weekend so I could tour a couple colleges, and it was really fun! I got to explore places I’d never been, like the Getty Center and Santa Monica. It was really enjoyable to discover new places and have new experiences.
What is your favorite food?
I love all types of food, I couldn’t pick a favorite.
What is something that no one knows about you?
Honestly, I’m an open book; I don’t really keep any secrets!
Favorite thing to do on a beautiful day?
Walking around town with friends or taking my dog for a walk!
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Both: sometimes I like to get up early, but I still like to stay up late.
Starbucks or Dutch Bros?
What are you excited about in the next 12 months?
I’m excited to start my senior year and go on my trip to Ecuador, as well as doing this internship.
What are you grateful for right now?
I’m grateful that I’m able to take part in this internship, and to have an opportunity to learn so much about photography.
