About me

Hello again! I’m Malina and I`m a 19 year old photographer and traveller from Munich. 

When I was nine years I got my first camera and fell in love with taking photos. I sticked to portrait and people photography for some years and offered my first photo shootings when I was 15 years old. I love working with people, helping them to get comfortable in front of a camera, capturing moments for them, etc.

Nevertheless it has always been my biggest dream to travel the world and to capture it through my camera lens. The past year I spent realising this dream. I started to travel around Europe with an interrail ticket I won, I spend a month in the beautiful south of Portugal to take photos for a surf hostel (of the buildings, as well as the hostel life, people and the area), a months in London as an Au pair and I also travelled to Thailand by myself. I made more interrail trips and spent another month working for a hostel on Tenerife in Spain. I learned a lot about myself, about my passions, improved my photography, got out of my comfort zones and learned what it means to be independent and on your own.

I also decided to share my travel advices, tips, routes and of course my photos on social media, as well as here on my website!

Now I am back in my home city in Munich. I applied for university and now I am studying design (photography design) at Hochschule München. 

If you have any questions, you want to tell me something or you want to have informations about a photo shooting, let me know!
