Hi,

I am self-taught and have a camera for about three years, as soon as I had the chance to buy it. I've been in love with photography for many years. I love night photography and landscapes, but I'm learning to appreciate nature, the macro and everything around me.

I hope this journey will enrich me with new tools to put into practice when I return home. I partecipated in Discover Krakow 12.

Hello there,


I am Geri, 26 years old, bulgarian, at the moment living in Germany, Berlin. Among many other hobbies of mine, photography is becoming more and more the preffered one. Just grabbed the camera a couple of months ago, but I am really seeing myself traveling with it, taking lots of pictures and the hobby slowly becoming a real job.
I am so happy finding this project and to have the opportunity to take a part in it would be the start I need in the path I chose. Also, the thought of meeting new people, new culture, trying new tastes and seeing those amazing Marocco's landscapes is really exciting.

My main interests are meeting new people, fitness and photography.

I study photography and I am currently creating my own photographic style.

For me the shot has the task of making it clear why you wanted to capture that moment rather than another and this most of all will make your work different from all the others.
