Gizelle Hernandez is a Mexican-American Artist who grew up in South El
Monte, CA. In high school, she went nowhere without a disposable or video camera, and she could always be found working in the darkroom.
Her first job was at a mall photo studio mostly taking photos of groups of friends and young couples posing against painted backdrops. She graduated from Art Center College of Design with a B.F.A. in Photography and Imaging.
Gizelle is currently based in Los Angeles and is a full-time freelance photographer and director with a focus in fashion and portraiture. Her work is recognizable by the way she uses surreal lighting, set design, and vivid color.
