The start of the relation ship with my camera goes back way into the last century. Without wanting to sound ancient, but I did actually still stand in a dark room printing photos myself. The moment when an image appears on a white piece of paper right in front of me is still somewhat magical to me.
Heavy hearted at first I eventually made the switch to digital photography some years ago. Soon I got to appreciate the new technology, learnt fast how to work with it but I still kind of handled it with an analog approach.
I knew that if I wanted to establish myself as professional I had bring my skills to the next level. Last year I signed up at the German "Fotografie Insitute" (Photography Institute) for an online training program in professional photography.
Over the last twelve months I got the chance not only to brush up my old skills but also to learn from an international professional, George Seper who has been working in food, fashion and travel photography for decades. Wim Woeber, a german professional people photographer supported me in this time as my immediate tutor.
After having gained professional titles "mommy" and "product line manager" in my life I´m extremely proud that after all these years I can finally add the title "CERTIFIED PHOTOGRAPHER" to my list!!
Below I´m sharing some of my work from this course.
