Hi, I'm Emanuela. Photography is not my profession. I work in a hospital. Photography is my passion.

I am self-taught and have a camera for about three years, as soon as I had the chance to buy it. I've been in love with photography for many years. I love night photography and landscapes, but I'm learning to appreciate nature, the macro and everything around me.

I hope this journey will enrich me with new tools to put into practice when I return home.

In 2010 I bought my first DSLR & made photography my hobby - I'd love it as an avenue to earn some money somehow. All my photography & post processing skills are self taught. My current favourite genres are : Architecture, Landscapes, Dance and Street. I've photographed concerts for a local Dance school & would like to get more involved in this. I LOVE travel - especially to lands of different cultures and history. The Krakow trip will be an excellent opportunity for me to see a new city, learn new skills & techniques at workshops & build my confidence & experience in photography as a whole.

Hi everyone! I'm Elena, I'm 21 years old and I live in Modena, in Italy. After high school, where I studied foreing languages, I started working while I've kept improving one of my biggest passions: photography. In fact, I've attended a photography class for two months. In future I would like to work in the photography sector.
