Dreams of Wings…

By Isabel / July 9, 2019 /

So what do you do when you realise that… your photography has become too difficult, your gear and process have become cumbersome and keep you from enjoying an intuitive and playful way of taking photos and creating images setting up your 4×5 camera is just not the same “meditative dance” that you could dance with…

Please press start if you would like to hear me read the story.   She opened her eyes. How did she get here? Where was here? She knew she had been looking for something important, something she could not remember because she had lost it a long time ago – a lifetime ago. There was…

The Journey – Chapter 1

By Isabel / July 2, 2018 /

Press the start button if you would like to hear me read the story. You probably need to turn the volume down 😉   She woke up early again and looked out of the window of the little lighthouse-keeper‘s cabin. The lighthouse was touched by the first rays of sun, a bright blue sky, two…

Winter…

By Isabel / March 21, 2018 /

This is my farewell to the winter…it has been a prickly one 😉 …where I learned a lot of things I did not expect to learn. The most important learning was that even if you are self-employed and love your ‘work’ (passion), it does not make you invincible – or maybe it even makes you…

By Isabel / July 2, 2017 /

Recently I was invited to my first podcast with the very talented and nice Jon Wilkening to talk about photography.
