Meet Unice Fernández

Today we’d like to introduce you to Unice Fernández.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I’m a portrait photographer based out of San Diego, California. I was born and raised in Washington State and as a child, I remember always embracing my creativity. I loved sewing, hair, makeup, pottery, painting and event designing. I found a love for photography when my aunt and uncle purchased a point and shoot camera. I had no idea how to use it but once I figured it out, I was borrowing their camera every chance I could. Soon after, my grandma gave me my first point and shoot camera and I decided to take a photography course in High School. While in college, photography remained a hobby until my friends and sister encouraged me to launch my photography business. That’s how Unice Fernández Photography came about.

Please tell us about your art.
I love creating portraits based of off client’s vision and making it come to life. My goal is to make people feel known, beautiful, and welcomed just the way they are. I also create personal work because once I have a concept in mind, I have to get it out of my system haha. Usually, concepts come to mind based on how I’m feeling or what inspires me at that moment. Aesthetically, I love timeless and true to color editing.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
I move around a lot and totally understand haha. Advice to artists is to reach out! If you want to connect with others, shoot them an email or a DM. You have nothing to lose. The worse thing they can say is no.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
You can check out my portfolio on my site or on Instagram @unicefernandezphoto.

The best way to support is to book me and share my work.
