hi, I'M Abel

A Dad Snapping Pics

Hi there! I am Abel Jaye Manansala, a Southern California-based photographer. I am a husband, a girl dad, and a dog dad, who loves taking photos of my beautiful daughter. I strive to capture genuine moments and memories which is why I gravitate towards film photography.

My inspiration to become a photographer in my early years came from Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Due to breaking my dad's cameras, it wasn't until after college that I pursued photography.

Some of my photographers include Fan Ho, Gordon Parks, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Maier, Saul Leiter, and Joe Greer. I hope to continue capturing memories, moments and connecting with other film photographers.

If you would like to reach me for rates, availability, or to connect, please email hello@abeljaye.com.

Rest at the End, Not in the middle.
