Monica Royal’s obsession with macro started, like many others, with water on flowers and quickly grew to advanced abstract image design. She especially enjoys photographing ordinary objects and making them unrecognizable. “It makes for some really fun conversations!”
Her macro imagery is widely recognized as unique and innovative. She’s won Illustrative Photographer of the Year with Professional Photographers of San Diego in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. Her artwork has been published in several magazines and was most recently on the cover of Tamron’s National Magazine. Monica’s articles and podcasts have been shared on numerous web pages. As a social and entertaining artist, she has become a sought after speaker & private teacher. Monica travels the country speaking and teaching with the sponsorship of Tamron USA, Miller’s Professional Imaging and Savage Universal behind her.
Monica has permanent art installations in public venues in Canada, the U.S. and Guam as well as a long list of private collectors. She has exhibited at Escondido Art Gallery in Escondido California and the Natural History Museum in San Diego. | monicaroyal.com
