About me

It all started in 2009 when I got my first digital camera as a present. From that moment on I started seeing the world through the lens (mostly). It took years to self-teach myself (because it took time for me to realize that photography was not just a hobby, but a way of life) with books and a lot of crap pictures. I've heard most of the insulting comments people can come up with during these years - from being a stupid wench/bimbo who'd better keep of the camera equipment to being unoriginal and so on and so forth. So what I was trying to say is that I know how hard it is to start and how unwelcoming the fellow colleagues - photographers can be to a newbie. If you didn't give up in the beginning - you are already wondering 'Who are you?'OK, I am a female born in 1992 native to and living in Bulgaria. (Sounds like an introduction in those sites where people register to find a soul mate, right?). I have a degree in English Philology (that means - English and American studies or in plain language - English and American language culture and a hell a lot more of things you don't care about). Photography has been a passion for me for the past 6 years and the more I shoot, the more I want to keep on doing it.
