Winter Break Edition 

         

Georg

My name is Georg and I am from Austria. I work as a lawyer in an IT company. In my free-time - especially while travelling I enjoy photography. I'm interested in color, light, beautiful sceneries and people. Most of the time I take pictures of my family, friends and random people and objects. Recently, I did more street and landscape photography. I get my inspiration from every-day things or situations, documenting the aesthetic aspects in my environment. Most photos were shot with my digital Fuji cameras but some were taken on a Kiev 60, currently my favorite medium format film camera. I've started shooting analog recently because it keeps me in the moment and I spend less time focusing on a screen and worrying about details. However, I appreciate the convenience of modern digital cameras and the possibility to share images instantaneously.   I participated in Discover Krakow XIII.

Claire

Hi! I'm Claire. I live in the Isle of Man, where I'm a full-time Mum to 2 girls. I'm currently studying for a bookkeeping diploma via distance learning. In 2010 I bought my first DSLR & made photography my hobby - I'd love it as an avenue to earn some money somehow. All my photography & post processing skills are self taught. My current favourite genres are : Architecture, Landscapes, Dance and Street. I've photographed concerts for a local Dance school & would like to get more involved in this. I LOVE travel - especially to lands of different cultures and history. The Krakow trip will be an excellent opportunity for me to see a new city, learn new skills & techniques at workshops & build my confidence & experience in photography as a whole. 

I participated in Discover Krakow XII.
