My favourite travel destination is Greece - the country I left my heart in. Taking photos of Greek landscapes and Greek people brings me an immense joy.

I love taking pictures but I'm not a professional photographer.
For me photohraphy is a process, where I am totally by myself.
It's about creating a picture out of reality and my fantasy. In the end you can see my perspective and personality.
 
Nature and landscapes are my favourite part of photography but I am looking forward to discover new genres.

 

Rebekka

Hello there! My name is Jenny, I am 37 years old and I am from the south-west of Germany close to the borders of Luxembourg and France.
I am a teacher at a German high school for English and Geography. Even though I love my job, deep inside my soul I am more of an artist. When I take photos I like to capture fleeting moments or things which people usually pay no attention to. I love to play with perspectives and make them tell stories.
I am not a professional photographer and therefore I am excited to gain more experience in the field.
Looking foreward to the experience and to meet you all!

 

Jenny
