Feminine Weapon shoot with Nancy Danino at The Cutting Room NYC

Born and raised in Italy, Manuela Rana has always had a passion for photography. With her stunning looks she could have found work on either side of the lens, but loves capturing beauty and nuance with the click of a button. Manuela turned her lifelong passion into a profession four years ago. She recently relocated to New York where she met and assisted the famous Antoine Verglas and has grown increasingly interested in fashion photography. The fact that she’s a woman, and so naturally likeable, helps her models feel comfortable to bring out their sexy – and sometimes quirky – sides.

Life in New York isn’t always easy but Manuela credits her husband Enrico, who’s currently touring with Mama Mia, for his unconditional support and belief her photography goals.

Manuela’s work for Feminine Weapon speaks for itself. While these women are beautiful and interesting on their own, she’s found a way to capture their light in a beautiful, natural way – something only someone with Manuela’s considerable talents could achieve. Best of all, she – and her shoots – are a blast! ~FW
