Isabel M Subtil


How did you get into the industry?

I am from Portugal. In another life, I ran my family ceramic business and later opened my own buying agency with a specialty in textiles and dinnerware. This career took me all over the world, exposing me to a plethora of art and culture; which continue to influence my daily life and work. I am drawn to the richness, texture and marvel of light. I strive for that to be reflected in my imagery. I came to Minnesota 16 years ago to study commercial photography and ultimately traded in my briefcase for a camera. I have been fortunate to combine two of my greatest passions, food and photography, into a career. I have put a great deal of myself into customizing my studio, complete with a full kitchen that loves to be cooked in. I welcome anyone to visit. I would love to make you a coffee and talk about how much I enjoy what I do.
