a wild photographer in her natural habitat

Hello, my name is Paula...

my pronouns are she/her and I am a photographer based in Amsterdam.

I'm fueled by coffee, I love cats, and hold a special place in my heart for plants & nature.

My story with photography began in childhood, with an old & heavy Zenith camera that belonged to my father and fascinated me. In my teens, I found a lot of comfort through art, escaping my inner struggles by photoshopping fantastic scenarios in and around photos I took with a very simple digital camera, the only one my family could afford. Besides all the fun, this allowed me to learn many skills that I still use to this day. With adulthood and its demands, creative photography took a back seat – but the urge to document life and express my feelings never vanished.

In 2018, just for fun, I enrolled in a professional photography course and those were the most fulfilling, happy weeks I'd had in a looong time. A sparkle was ignited, and since then I've been honing my skills and working towards a career as a professional photographer. 

And here we are today! My connection to photography is truly a lifelong journey, and I want to share my passion with you. I’m here to help you immortalise and remember amazing moments. Photography has always played an important role in my life, and I want it to play one in yours as well.

Shall we begin? :)
