Started in January 2015 by Eliza Romero - a fashion photographer, style blogger, content creator, educator, and pop culture critic - Aesthetic Distance was a way to finally create her "dream job" by combining her passions of art, fashion, photography and pop culture. Early on she began to share her entrepreneurial journey via blogging outfit posts and new fashion editorials that she photographed. People started to take notice and the response was incredible. That's when Aesthetic Distance shifted from being a blog to a calling. It has become a vehicle to inspire, encourage and support fellow females in their endeavors.
Prior to starting her blog, Eliza attended The University of Maryland, College Park where she majored in Art History. She then earned her M.F.A. in Photography.
Eliza and her team of models and makeup/hair artists provide full creative direction and production of fashion editorials and social media campaigns to brands who are interested in the Aesthetic Distance vibe.
Eliza is a supporter of We Need Diverse Books, an organization of children's book lovers that advocates essential changes in the publishing industry to produce and promote literature that reflects and honors the lives of all young people. She is also the Public Relations Officer of the Katipunan of Maryland, a nonprofit that focuses on developing social and educational programs that promote Filipino culture in Maryland.
