My name is Geneva Cegelis Sum, and I am a graphic designer and photographer based in Los Angeles.


I have a BFA in Graphic Design from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. I have done design work and project management for clients including Disney, Energizer, NYX Professional Makeup, Spotify, Redbull, Microsoft, Lionsgate, Johnson & Johnson, Salesforce, Beachbody, United Healthcare, the City of Los Angeles, AIDS Walk New York, and NPR.


My photography work focuses primarily on exploring women’s issues and the experience of being a young woman in contemporary society. My passion is creating powerful, authentic portraits of women on-location using natural lighting.

I also have a passion for creating documentary work in partnership with nonprofits to help shed light on contemporary humanitarian crises, and using photography as a tool to share stories on the behalf of people who are unable to use their own voice. My work has brought me to places as far as Bangladesh and Lebanon, where my photography has brought awareness to the issues of sex trafficking, child marriage, and the Syrian refugee crisis.

In addition, I also photograph events, portraiture, and street life.
