About Mandalyn Gilles

After spending most of my 20's with my nose in the books, I decided to pick up a manual camera "just to see" if I could figure out how to use it. Fast-forward a hand full of years and here we are! I guess you could say I figured it out and became obsessed with capturing every fleeting moment I possibly could. I started out taking self-portraits to learn how to use my camera and really fell in love with the art when I started photographing my travels. If there is one thing that influences my life on a daily basis, it is that I know change and growth are imminent. Living the military lifestyle has helped me to recognize that life is fluid and fleeting, so capturing the here and now is more important than ever.
