About ME

My name is Yael DeFaye. I have lived in the San Luis Valley since 2006. I was born in France and spent most of my life there, with a detour to England in my teen years. I have traveled from Austria to Hong Kong through my first 25 years, visiting four continents and 18 countries.

In 2007, I started my interest in photography. In the last few years, I have spent more time exploring and seeking the art of photography. I enjoy capturing nature, both in its earthy and life forms. Lately, my main photography interest has been toward conceptual portraiture, which aims to express ideas and concepts through photos combining landscape and portrait together. Just imagine being an actor on a movie set and capturing those moments!

I have taught photography classes and workshops. I'm looking to start those again and keep doing senior pictures, family pictures, and events.
