Natalie Yang

Submission from Santa Cruz, Photographer

 
 
 
 

Natalie spent her youth running around Mt. Tamalpais and the Pacific Ocean. Her natural surroundings have always profoundly influenced her: “This mountain is recognized for it’s resemblance to a sleeping lady and she is my original muse,” she explains. Natalie is currently living on the coast of California in Santa Cruz. She feels incredibly greatful to have found her passion so early in her life and wants nothing more than to make beautiful photographs of the beautiful people and surroundings she encounters.
