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 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 we can bring you the best of the best content.
