Welcome to my blog!

This is where I share my passion for photography (not cameras) and a few things about myself. Photography is more than a job for me, it’s a way of seeing and capturing the beauty of the world. On this blog, you’ll find posts on various topics related to photography, such as new skills, new destinations, new perspectives and tips. I'll also share some information about headshots and portraits. I hope you’ll find something that inspires you, or maybe learn something new! Feel free to join the conversation and share your thoughts with me.

As English is not my mother tongue, I’ll try to keep it simple and clear (hopefully)!
