Meet Abrielle Rounds

Today we’d like to introduce you to Abrielle Rounds.

Hi Abrielle, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I first got a love for photography by watching National Geographic when I was a little girl. All I knew was that I wanted to be behind a camera and create awesome photos. I started photography when my dad handed me his old Canon XTi back in High School. From there, I began exploring all my options and what I could do with it. It started out with fun portraits of friends and slowly venturing off into nature photography, product photography, and all other kinds! Soon enough, I’d be shooting weddings, events, graduations, and now to today, which I actually got freshly hired to do photo advertising for Stone Brewing Co.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has definitely not been a smooth road. Some people will tell you that if you love something, you’ll be great at it all the time and you should always have motivation and inspiration otherwise you’re in the wrong field. I don’t believe that, and being honest, it was hard to be in school, working a minimum wage job, and find time for photography and the motivation to do all 3. It takes time, and that is okay!

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I wish I could say I specialize in one thing with photography, but right now, I’m doing many different things with it! I am most proud of my range if anything, and I believe you don’t have to be tied down to one specialty if you still want to explore all of your abilities and options.

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
During Covid, it was hard for me to find the motivation. I was actually sent home from studying abroad in Australia with a VERY short notice to leave the country, I had no family back in California, and my parents live out the country with closed borders at the time, so I was grateful that my boyfriends parents let me crash at their place so last minute and unexpectedly. If anything, I have learned that patience is key. And that goes with anything, whether it’s work, your motivation, or anything really.
