Hey! I am Anastasia Nelen, a portrait photographer.
I’m so glad you’re here! I’ve been a photographer for over 15 years now and have done photo stories in more than 35+ countries. I do documentary—style stories, portraits, love stories, family photos, and elopement weddings.
When I’m not behind the lens I absolutely love traveling and exploring new cultures. On a regular day, you might spot me walking through the beach and checking sea turtles' nests because I also do a volunteer job and try to protect nature.
If not, most likely, I’ll be reading a book, editing photos, or perhaps chatting with friends, maybe planning the next women’s club meeting that I have organized. For me, it is important to have a supportive community and communication with entrepreneurs and active women around the globe.
Let’s check what I am creating!

I’ve done photo shoots in 35+ countries and have been traveling for 10 years.
I collaborate with Sony and shoot on the Sony A7RV. I’m thrilled about mirrorless cameras and the latest technological innovations.
Volunteered at the Olympics, spent 4 years volunteering in archaeological expeditions, and for the past 2 years, I’ve been participating in the conservation of endangered sea turtles in the Mediterranean Sea.
Speak 3 languages: English, Spanish, and Russian.
I’ve sold over 150,000 of my works worldwide and my free images for creative community usage have been viewed by over 13 million people.
My youngest photography student is 9 years old.
