In Focus Women In Profile - Cassell Archinuk


What sparked your interest in photography?

I have always loved the outdoors and hiking, but it wasn't until 6 years ago when I went to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park that I started experimenting with my phone camera to see what kind of landscape photos I could get. I fell in love with seeing nature through the lens and a year later purchased my first DSLR camera. From then on its been learning from others, online tutorials and practice.

How long have you been shooting for?

6 Years

What is your favourite type of photography?

My first love would be landscape photos, particularly Southwest especially in golden hour and sunset, with the mountains as being a close second. I have recently started my own portrait business where I incorporate people in beautiful landscapes such as elopements, engagements and bridal sessions to name a few.

What is in your camera bag?

I shoot with a Nikon D750, and my main lens is my Nikkor 24-120mm. I also have a 35mm, 50mm and 85mm that I use for portraits.

What would your dream kit be?

If I could add on to what I already have, my dream kit would involve another camera like the Nikon Z7.

What software do you use to process your images?

I use Lightroom to edit and have found that it works best for what I am trying to achieve in my photos.

Who are your top 3 photography inspirations?

I would say Ansel Adams inspired me due to his love for National Parks and the way he photographed them especially since he only had black and white to work with. I really like Marco Grassi for his use of light in his photos and Cath Simard for her beautiful dreamy images and her love for exploring.

What are you top 3 bucket list locations you want to shoot?


Dolomites Mountains in Italy
