about me

My name is Grace Pamela and I’m the founder of Summerana which is named after my two daughters Summer and Liliana which was founded in 2012.

Summerana is a virtual academy, community, & magazine for creatives where you can learn photography, marketing, Lightroom and Photoshop editing and more by me and 20+ instructors at Summerana.com.

I began my career as a photographer, but soon found myself falling in love with mentoring fellow photographers and developing helpful and creative tools for photographers in Lightroom and Photoshop.
I have created a premium photography academy where everything we’ve ever created and taught since 2012 is in one place, working with creatives around the globe to make sure I can bring you the best of the best content.
