…and how I found out that I´m a creative one…
At first, I´m technically not the best Photographer of all. For me personally photography means to express myself and to show how I things see. The viewer of my pictures should get the feeling to see the world through my eyes. That was my intention from the beginning on.
My journey started at the point I gave birth to my little son. Before I became a mother a was a very sporty human. I rode a lot by horses but also enjoyed kayaking, with a baby that was suddenly no longer possible. I was looking for a hobby or occupation that I can do with a little baby. I spontaneously feel in love with photography, because I was able to shoot beautiful photos of my son. At that time I had no idea that I´m a creative one.
In the beginning I bought an old and super cheap, used camera from Nikon. I thought I just give it a try. To my surprise, it turned out that I was talented. I can still remember the moment when I showed some of my pictures to the people and I was totally surprised to see they liked it. I had not expect that.
I think it was a collegue, who advised me to publish my pictures publicly. The best medium for that seemed to me instagram….so I bought a slightly better camera an and started a real adventure. I got after a short time a lot of requests to sell my pictures.
Today it´s been a few days ago that I´m started ofiically selling some of my pictures on Adobe Stock and I´m really proud of that. You know I never made a course or something like that. All that I know about photography I acquired myself within three years. There were many sleepless nights of learning and exercising.
I still don´t have the best camera of all. But that does not matter showed me that experience. More then that it is important to transport feelings.
Slowly, I also try to develop myself more in an artistic way of photography. For emample, inspired by the expulsion of my grandparents from Egerland (Bohemia) in times of the second WorldWar, I created a photo for the Egerländer community that reflects my feelings about displacement.
I never thought that I´m creative, because I´ve never tried it to be before. Now it feels like a valve that has opened and everything can get out. It also helps me feeling balanced. I hadn´t that kind of feeling before, there was always something that I missed….
I also published a portfolio on this website to offer my work as a photographer. If you´re interested please contact me.
Lovley greetings and stay inspired,
