Behind the camera


“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”  – Ansel Adams

Hello and welcome on my blog!

I’m thrilled you’re here, thank you for having a look at my work and reading my thoughts on photography. I’m happy to share them with you.

I’m am a non-professional but avid photographer, visual explorer, sunset-chaser, sunrise-hunter, travel enthusiast, nature-lover, city-stroller, story-teller, full-time teacher and university lecturer, Austro-Serbo-Hungarian expat with an unstoppable wanderlust. Constantly struggling with itchy feet, I try to travel as much as possible and pursue my love for photography. Through my images I’d like show you the exhilarating beauty of the world, the magic that can be created with the right light.

At age 21, I left my job and studies in Serbia, packed my suitcase and moved to Austria without speaking a word of German. What seemed like a crazy move, turned out to be an adventure of a lifetime. Since then I’ve been exploring marvellous destinations in Europe and beyond from my home of choice, Vienna.

Photography is a journey. Join me on my travels and allow me to inspire you.
