    I'm a photographer and crafty person based in Berlin. I've been hosting photography and macrame experiences since 2018 and I try to provide travellers with an authentic Berlin feeling during a workshop of your choice. The aim is that you learn a new skill, you meet other travellers and you get to explore the city! A little about my background I worked for 8 years as a flight attendant in The Netherlands and England before I changed my career to be a photographer. I photographed weddings all over Europe. I have always loved working with my hands and picked up knitting and macrame again in recent years. Since 2016 I live in Berlin and I love sharing with other travellers. I meet a lot of people with Couchsurfing and during my workshops. I am travelling to new countries often as well!

  • What you will see and do

    We'll get together for a photo walk through east Berlin and concentrate on the rawer areas of the city to capture. Think graffiti, squad housing, abandoned areas and courtyards. During the photo walk, I will help you with camera settings and give you some tips and tricks where required. After the Photowalk, we'll discuss some post-production options and look at some questions you may have. The experience is great for beginners in photography but also for experts as the areas we will visit are great to capture. So if you have an interest in east Berlin and photography, this experience will be well suited for you!

    If there's a date you would like to attend but don't see it on the calendar, send me a message! Let me know when you'll be in Berlin, and I'll see if I will be available.
