    Hi guys,

    Ok, I normally don't know what to say about myself but I give it a try:

    I live in a town in Switzerland and my passion is..guess what? right,photography.
    I love to be outside and take pictures of the nature but I also like taking some portrait shots of people but as I don't have much experience with it and I am too shy to ask people if they let me take their picture I'm not too good at it. I want to do a serie though, with elder people's faces. Faces of elder people inspire me and it impresses me how much you can read in it.

    My dream is to study photography. Not as an apprenticeship but as a major at a university or college. I've been looking for such a school with a good reputation but haven't found any. If you have an idea, please please please let me know!

    Well, that's about it.
    Thanks for your interest ;)

    Welcome! It's not easy to ask people for picture and get used to hearing a lot of people say no. Just don't give up and keep working hard. Don't be affraid to show your work to people you ask. they might be more willing if they see something they like.

    Not sure about Switzerland but Speos in Paris is supposed to be good. I guess paris is not a bad city to be in for it either.
