Describe your creative style in 3 words

Urban, atmospheric, street.

Tell us about a time you struggled or failed with your photography, and how you overcame it?

I’ve been struggling since I started. 😊 But I see it as a nonstop journey/adventure to find my way and grow.

What sparked your love of photography?

It was Instagram. A friend told me to have a look at it and from that moment I was hooked on photography (Not on Instagram). And when I’m hooked, I’m all in!

What’s your favorite class on KelbyOne and why?

I like lessons about the use of PS and Lightroom (tips and tricks), just to get my processing skills up. Also classes about landscape photography, focus stacking are on my menu 😊
