Today we’d like to introduce you to Angelica Monroy.
Angelica, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My mother bought me a camera when I was about nine and I sort of learned through trial and error throughout the years. I started to get a little more invested in my work when I was about 16 because by then, I was meeting and learning from other beautiful artists who have inspired me to keep some moments alive forever.
My love for music has brought me to where I am today. These days you can catch me at a local show in LA/OC, photographing some of the wildest upcoming individuals and bands.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The biggest struggle is for me is TIME. I feel like I’m constantly on the move and a lot of my work (editing) piles on, but I love what I do, and I’m always eager to share my thoughts and memories.
We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I’m an artist, I enjoy all things that require creativity especially within the realm of music. I’m especially known for my Concert and portrait photography.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was a very curious child. I spent most of my childhood in the back patio blasting my radio and making things. I would make full-length gowns out of paper, create collages of my favorite bands and make mixtapes of my favorite radio songs. I was an only child and struggled with making friends, so I always lost myself with music.
