Born in Bulgaria, spent the last 7 years moving around in Europe with my lovely Italian husband, Roberto.
We met in Budapest, Hungary while I was doing a specialisation in Hungarian language and culture. Then we moved to Milan, Italy where we spent almost three years getting an espresso in the bar and enjoying a really good pizza.
In the beginning 2015 we moved to the City of Lights, Paris – getting a baguette from the boulangerie on the corner and watching the Eiffel Tower from our living room.
After two years, this February we decided to exchange the Parisian cityscape for sunny East Bay, California.
In September 2017 we also became parents to a baby boy Andrea, who fill our hearts with joy every day!
List of favourite photographers include Robert Mapplethorpe, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh; classics like Newton, Kertesz, Capa, Bresson and one of the most inspirational – Gianni Berengo Gardin.
Whenever I go I take a camera with me. I am taking pictures with Panasonic Lumix GH5 or Lumix GX7 with 14mm/F2.5 pancake lens or 35-100mm/F2.8; very occasionally I am using the original camera lens or 45-200/4.5. Since two months I am also going around everywhere with a tiny Sony RX100 iv – a great everyday companion.
Editing with Lightroom and Photoshop CC.
Other things I enjoy are:
- Reading – here is my Goodreads profile: fiction, poetry, fat old books or kindle – I always bring at least one with me. I do read in English, Bulgarian, Italian and occasionally German
- Traveling – I do it all the time because of my job, but also in my free time. I am always happy to visit a new city
- Journaling and handwriting
