Camille If I had to choose a quote to describe my lifestyle, it would be "Don't shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like". I'm only an amateur photograph but I'm doing my best to catch the moment, to grasp the essence of the subject I'm photographing. I sincerely think that photography has so many things to tell and I'm just trying to learn how to speak with it.
Erika I'm not good with words and to me, to take good photos it isn't enough just to see the best moment of things, you also need to know how to put the feelings you have for it into the camera. It's the way I try to explain myself and what I feel about life.
Federico Hi, my name is Federico and I'm 19 years old. I have been passionate about photography since I was a kid, but in the last 3 years I have gone out of my passion, transforming it into a pastime and a real job. What to say? Vamos!
Valentina Hi! I'm Valentina, I'm 30 years old and come from Reggio Calabria, south of Italy. For study reasons I've lived in different cities in the last years but I've still not find my place in the world so I'll probably change again. A month ago I took my second degree and now I'm finally a medical doctor. I love reading, travelling and taking photos both from my phone and my camera. I love details, sunsets and landscapes and i think every moment should be remembered forever so you can live it again whenever you want just looking at the photos you took. I'm so excited about this experience and can't wait to leave.
Alice I'm Alice and I'm always looking for the perfect sunset and sky's colors to catch with my camera. To me, happiness is drinking beer watching the sun going down over the sea, but travelling taught me that even the perspective of a square could give me that same feeling. Looking forward to eating churros and paella, too.
Denise Hello! My name is Denise. I'm 49 years old and I'm from Reggio Emilia, Italy. I'm passionate about photography (landscape, architecture, details...) This is my first time that i take part of Discover projects.
Giovanni Hello everyone! My name is John I'm 25 years old. I'm passionate about cinema and I took care of photography for an independent movie. I'm inspired by great directors like Nicolas Winding Refn and Sergio Leone.
Berta Hi everyone! I'm Berta, a Spanish globetrotter living in Rome. I've always love travelling, taking photos as a way to convey all those feelings I felt during a trip. I'm not a professional photographer, but I'm continually trying to learn through my camera, as much as possible in every place I visit! Every opportunity to live a new experience is a gift for me!
Valentina Hi I'm Valentina and I'm from Milan: Communication manager for work and passionate traveller for life. I started my photography journey for just a hobby and now it has became a real passion. Snap photos of everything that catches my eye: people, hidden corners, colorful buildings ...
Anya My name is Anya. Ukrainian girl living in England. Accountant Monday to Friday. Love my job but most enjoy taking photos. The world is a beautiful place. Just stop and look.
Monica Hi, my name is Monica. I'm 22 years old and I'm from Italy. I'm studying photography at the Accademia Laba in Brescia. I hope someday to become an advertising photograph. I am really happy to be able to take part in this experience and I hope to meet interesting people who love photography like me. See you soon!
Victoria Hi! I'm Victoria from Cantabria. I like photography, music and arts and 'm studing at an art school based in Santander. Artes Plásticas y diseño gráfico en fotografía it's called FOTOAC too.
Chiara My name is Chiara, I’m 25 and I’m from Rome. I’m not good at talking about me, as I’m not good at talking at all, this is why I prefer to “speak” through my pictures. I love capturing the amazing colours of nature and environment, and I’m looking forward to start this new adventure. See you in Barcelona!
Soila My names are Elizabeth Koikai nickname Soila. I am a Kenyan living in Oslo, Norway. I have been doing amateur photography since 2008, started as a hobby turned in to passion. The kind of photography I focus on is landscape, nature & wildlife. There is something marvelous about nature hence my love for pictures of nature; they are timeless. I am super excited to be taking part in Discover Barcelona and learn more about photography.
Ines Hello! I’m Inês, a 20 years old Communication Design student from Portugal. Photography is something that I always loved to do and I really like the idea of sharing this passion with others.
Valeria Hi, my name is Valeria and I'm from Turin. I've always been in love with travel and the discover of the new places I've never been and maybe just seen on a photo. Due to different difficulties I've never been able to do this and now that I can I'm gonna catch the opportunity. I don't know where this passion came from, but I've found myself one day with this huge love in my heart, even if there's a difficult relationship between me and photography. Most of all I like to take portrait photos. I like how this can take out the true itself of a person, and I love my subjects to be real and sincere with myself and my camera.
