Hi guys, I'm from Bialystok, Poland and I will participate in workshop Discover Lisbon.
I've participated in Discover Sicily 1.
Although photography is new to me, I love it, because it's a fantastic way to catch great and important moments of our lives, traveling and adventures.
I hope to get more knowledge and tips about taking photos during this workshop, but also experience new places and meet new people. I'm very excited!
Photography is my way to open up to different perspectives and to distance myself from everyday life. What I love the most about it is that it simply makes my dreams come true. It takes me to the places which become my favourite ones. And it gives me people who normally I would never have a chance to meet, and they become my favourite ones as well. That's why I take any opportunity to travel, practice photography skills, and do things I've never done before.
Let Me Italian You always provides all above, that's why Discover Lisbonis my fifth experience - before that, I took part in Discover Barcelona III, Discover Sicily I, Discover Marrakech I and Discover Budapest V.
Hello! I´m a 33 year old construction engineer from Helsinki, Finland. I have been taking photos for about 15 years.
