Hello, My name is Stella. Nice to meet you!

I live in New York City and I am a transplant from Manila, Philippines. Like most Asians, I love food and I love taking pictures of what I eat. I also take pictures of events, celebrations, musicians and jewelry.

This blog covers a lot of different topics, but it is woven together with my photography.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Film and Audio Visual Communication from the University of the Philippines, Diliman and an Associate's in Applied Sciences in Advertising and Marketing Communication from the Fashion Institute of Technology. I have taken Photography classes at the School at International Center of Photography and the Cooper Union School of Continuing Education.  

I speak and write English and Tagalog fluently but I can’t hold two different conversations in two different languages at the same time. I live in New York City with my wonderful husband.

Want to know more? I interviewed myself here.

I am interested in taking photos for you! I am available for freelance work in photography, graphic design, writing/marketing and taste testing! I can be contacted via email pictchas(at)gmail(dot)com or via Twitter.
