"Living by the ocean allows myself and my work to be inspired by the ocean and sunlight ... which creates this peaceful, beautiful, absolutely mesmerizing dance right before your very eyes.

Now... how do I translate that to an image that does this pure beauty any justice??" -Zemina

A little bit about the girl behind the lens...


Zemina was born and raised in San Diego, put herself through school and graduated in 2002 from UCSB, fluent in Spanish (actually her 1st language), and a 100% self taught photographer and artist.


She started painting when she was 10, and purchased her first digital camera at 30 when her daughter Zoë was born. Over the years, her painting and photography have helped her create her own unique form of art. She currently lives in coastal San Diego with her husband Andrew and two littles, Jax and Zoë.


Some of her happy moments:

Home with her 2 kiddos Jax and Zoë, and husband Andrew (Carlsbad, CA), snowboarding, gardening, anywhere in the Mountains, biking around town, and most of all traveling to explore new places!!!

Her work includes Artistic Portraits (Above and Underwater), Commercial Work, and Fine Art Prints from all her travels and hometown of San Diego.
