Janelle Chanin was born and raised in Hawaii where her love for photography started at an early age.
It wasn't until her teen years that she began taking photography seriously. She attended Hawaii Pacific University where she earned a bachelors degree in Visual Communication. She also started photographing professionally for weddings, engagements, portraits and other events.
There is no avenue in photography that she does not enjoy. From landscapes, to people, to abstract, she looks for any opportunity to capture the beauty of the world as she sees it. Her inspirations include Steve McCurry and Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Janelle currently lives in Southern California with her husband and continues to pursue her passion for photography.
