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.

I participated in Discover Barcelona V.

 

Hi,

I have been working as a professional portrait and children photographer at the successful photo company Pildikompanii. Nowadays I work as a guitar player at the Helin-Mari Arder band and as a freelance photographer taking pictures of musicians and public events. Shooting wildlife and street scenes is my hobby. One of my favourite photo genres is the portraiture. I like bringing out the best and the most characteristic of every person I photograph.

I've participated in Discover Krakow 10, Discover Marrakech 3 and Discover Barcelona 10.

Luka

Hi,

I'm Luka, a 32y old software developer from Croatia living in Sweden. 
Photography is my amateur hobby. I mostly take portraits and candid shots in the streets or at an event. 

For me it's about making people happy with how they look on photos. 

I've decided to participate because I want to see in practice how and why other people do photography and I think this is a great place to do that.

Hi!

My name is Paola, I’m Italian girl. I graduated in Modern Philology. Literature, like the other arts, is an expression of individual thought and feeling achieved through the creative process.

Where literature is a written piece of the author’s thoughts, ideas, emotions, feeling, etc…the photograph is the visual representative of that as well. I think that this experience would be a good way to improve my culture background.

Thanks for give me this opportunity! I participated in Discover Krakow IX in November 2017.
