This photos are nearly a year old and they come from the first photo shoot I did with Marta. It was way before I even started a blog and decided that I really want to show my photos out there in the world. I feel like these photographs have such a strong autumn feel with the leaves dancing in the wind and slowly falling onto the ground. I simply could not share them at any other time than in the middle of autumn and as I decided to go public with the website in the middle of spring, despite their obvious charm, they did not really fit the mood.
Having moved around London empowered me to do things that I always wanted to do – find courage to approach people I find interesting. I didn’t know anyone around and making friends was a challenge on its own. I thought what would be a harm in saying ‘Hey, I like your blog and I take photos myself. Would you like to meet up for coffee and a chat?’ and I was right, it worked like magic and I started meeting people I already shared some interests with over the web. Marta was the first friend I made like this. It was last autumn at Primrose Hill and back then we created the photos you can see here. I took at least 20 000 photos since then and my photography and editing style has strongly developed since then. I was shyly thinking I would like to get more into photography and create a portfolio and a year later I have one I am proud of and even more ideas hatching!
