From AUTO Mode To International Published Photographer

Imagine sharing your vision and talent with the world by creating a successful photography career where you are creatively fulfilled, confidently skilled, booked solid and well-paid.

That’s what I had in mind when I first got started with photography…
I started out not knowing anything about photography, styling or editing, with no clients or studio, a cheap camera and crappy kit-lens.

I even shot in AUTO mode for the first two years in my business!

Self-taught all the way, I made so many mistakes along the way – including over-editing my images, saying yes to the wrong type of clients, not having a photography niche and undercharging.

And yet I managed to create a business with increasing revenue every year since + I’ve been published in numerous magazines around the world like Elle, Harpers Bazar, Conde Nast Traveller, Marie Claire just to name a few.

How did I get here?

I got here by overcoming my struggles and leaving my comfort zone. I got here by practicing a lot and working my tail off. There’s no other way.

Most of all, I got here by not giving up on my dream. I kept trying when I experienced a setback. I kept walking (sometimes crawling) after I failed. I kept trusting that somehow I would find a way.

When I started out, I was living in a small house, drove an OLD car, had three small children, and a husband who was always travelling for work + a full-time job as a therapist. And my studio was the garage!

I later “upgraded” my studio to our tiny garden shed and this was my studio for many, many years, but before I left this “studio” I had been published many times in magazines all over the world.

Today, I live in my dream house, and I have a beautiful studio, my kids are all grown up and I get to do what I love and travel when I want.

I tell you this because I believe that you too can make your dream come true. Whatever it might be.

You gotta work on your dreams every day – even just a little. You can’t stand still. You can’t allow your daily life to melt your dreams away. Move forward step by step. Keeping momentum is incredible important.

You gotta take some chances. Take some risks. Jump into the unknown because your dream life is outside your comfort zone.

And most importantly; don’t find excuses for not following your passion. You gotta create. Use the equipment you have. You don’t need a fancy studio, all you need is to practice your skills in as many ways as possible.

You don’t need a fancy title. You don’t need a fancy education. You just need to practice until you become so good they cannot ignore you.

And I’m here to help you get started with the first and most important steps in your new journey; the photography basics and beyond!
