My travel & photography projects are part of my journey to see the world in a new and unexpected way and I simply feel happy to share them with you.

Hello! My name is Andreia from Porto.I'm a psychology student with a growing passion for photography. I think i can recall the time i fell in love with photography. I have been going to expositions, institutes and recently i went to the centre of photography in Porto, where i got to know how the cameras work and how they evolved through the years. Its not only having an eye for taking pictures and framing it well. I lack the knowledge and that's why, i think this opportunity is incredible. I will be able to learn more, improve my skills and of course travel and meet other people with the same passion as me. Im thrilled to be part of this project and to know you all!
