WHY I DO WHAT I DO

A couple of weeks ago I volunteered at a school career event and talking to these young students really made me think about WHAT IS IT EXACTLY THAT I DO AND WHY? Yes, I am a portrait photographer and I am taking pictures of people. But actually, I think what I do is more than [...]

FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU

I've been plotting with dad for weeks, since they confirmed they were coming to visit me. We checked dates, I booked the lovely Shari for make-up... but I was still nervous to ask mum if she was up for it. Apparently I shouldn't have been, because she said 'YES' straight away to the question if [...]

A NEW CREATIVE PROJECT AND A GIVAWAY

As you know, I'm one of the Fireball Photographers, which is an international group of portrait photographers. We are interested in photography as an independent art form and we collaborate on creative projects throughout the year in order to grow as artists and professionals, and ultimately, to advance the art of photography everywhere. So I was [...]

FIREBALL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS

Earlier this year I travelled to Paris, not only to photograph a ballerina in the reflection of the Eiffel Tower, but also to learn from one of the world leaders in portrait photography, Sue Bryce. While the education in the small group was invaluable on its own right, I have also received an unexpected gift. [...]

MY BEGINNINGS

Someone asked me the other day about how it all started for me, what was the turning point when I knew I wanted to become a portrait photographer, and I thought I would share the story here as well... I got my first little Russian film camera (Smena Symbol for the tech-y ones) when I [...]

ABOUT SHOWING MYSELF TO THE WORLD

You know how I'm all about empowering women for confidence, positive body image, existing in photographs...? Well... I think it's time I got out of hiding. My lovely friend Bori @ Borbala Bojthe Photography took these photos of me almost a year (!) ago. And I was too self-conscious to show them to the world. [...]

PARIS – THROUGH MY EYES

Oh Paris... you are truly magical. Travel photography is not my specialty but something I truly enjoy and I had real trouble trying to select an acceptable amount of images to share because I had *hundreds* of gems. Basically anywhere you go in Paris is just pretty and full of history. Please note that this [...]

MY BATHROOM SECRETS

Yes, yes, yes - this is going to be a post about soap. My skin has always been dry. Which is especially unfortunate because I really don't like fuss and wasting time on things like moisturising. Don't get me wrong, I get the idea of taking care of yourself, your body, and YES all the [...]
