Welcome to Photodiary

Photographic stories of a hopeless romantic...

... who's looking for her Holy Grail - or a fancy vessel for her morning coffee. 😀








I am Nora, an admirer of vibrant colours (yes, even if I'm not wearing them), deep emotions (even if I'm not always showing them 🙂 ) and meaningful moments.

Creativity has always played a huge role in my life. Since the age of 2 when my scribbles started to look more like drawings, I have been involved with many artsy activities, brought my visions to life mostly on paper and canvas.
My interest in photography awakened when I had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places and wanted to bring home the good memories in form of photographic pictures instead of returning with ridiculous amounts of cute, shiny but mostly useless souvenirs. The main trigger for buying my first DSLR camera and learn to use it was a heavy snow shower in Huanglong, Sichuan. It was a childhood dream to see the Valley of the Yellow Dragon and my bridge camera let me down in those dreadful weather conditions. So I decided to upgrade and chose a weather sealed Pentax DSLR and basically, my photodiary starts here.
As I began discovering the creative freedom of interchangeable lenses and had absolute control over the camera, I dag myself deeper and deeper into the world of photography. Besides taking my camera out into the wild, I started taking pictures of beautiful people, then suddenly, I found myself shooting weddings, events, fitness classes, families, fire, mythical creatures, wonderful beasts and everything else.
You could have come across my work at Daily Mail, NatGeo Daily Dozen, CEWE photoworld, Vogue Italia , or your buddy's Facebook/Instagram feed.
Have a look around and if you dare to create something different with a pinch of fun or just want to say hello, do not hesitate to get in touch! x

It was a beautiful foggy morning in Cambridge. I was standing on a bridge over the river Cam when the first punters of the day slowly approached surrounded by hungry ducks.
