A Long Time Coming

Exactly what the title says. This post has been a long time coming. I cannot even count how many times I sat on this laptop trying to write about something. So many times I found myself uninspired typing whatever was in my head. Since moving back home I feel that I am someone else. I don’t really know if it’s good or not as it’s a matter of perspective. The problem of being from a country and have lived in another for several years is that you always miss a home! While I was back in London I was missing my family and the Mediterranean… Read More »A Long Time Coming

Home Sweet Home

My childhood room. I still cannot believe that I’m writing today’s blog post from my room. The one I spent most of my time studying (lol) and listening to my favourite songs on the radio. Do you remember the times we were listening to something on the radio and we were running around to find a cassette in order to record it? Oh my god. Yes, I was alive during those times and wow how much has this world evolved since then? I am finally back home. My brain cannot process the events that have happened in the last month. From visiting friends and family… Read More »Home Sweet Home

A simple life update

September has not always been my favourite month. I could easily say that I might hate it as well and hate is a strong word. For some, September feels like a new year as a new season starts but for me, September was always a weird one. It was always a month I counted down the days for it to end. This one was the same but worst. Since the time we took the decision to move back to Cyprus, I have been counting down the days (well the app on my phone has but LOL, details). For me this year, September was the transitional… Read More »A simple life update

Mum, I’m coming home.

I was on the phone the other day with my friend when I first said to him ‘I completely forgot how winter feels like back home. Or even Fall. I just can’t remember.’ And then it hit both of us. The strongest memories of winter and every smell of it I have were during our high school years. When we got to wake up in the morning when it was still dark, get our school uniform on, 2 layers of socks in case it was too cold, have a cup of tea (mum’s speciality) and head out. I remember that cold in my bones first… Read More »Mum, I’m coming home.

When In Amsterdam

It’s been a long time since I last posted a blog post and A LOT happened in the meantime. I will share everything one step at a time and one thing I got to realise for sure is that I miss writing. Sharing personal experiences, thoughts or tips on photography here in my own blog/space makes me feel strange. Strange in a very good way. Because I don’t know who you are but you are still here interested in reading what I have to say and as my photography, these blog posts influence you, my readers, and the thought of that makes me feel a… Read More »When In Amsterdam

RELOAD

Here I am sitting in my living room typing a new blog post after a long time. I have the flat to myself as the boyf is away for business and I just cooked myself a nice brunch while listening to Green Day. Old habits die hard. One day I’m gonna be 60 years old and STILL, you’ll find me listening to punk rock music. That’s a big part of me. I’m trying to remember when was the last time I did this: take care of myself. It’s been a loooooong time. If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that I have… Read More »RELOAD

EMPORIA : Blacks Visual X Proportion London

Visual Merchandising is a great field for one to study. From commercialized lifestyle to creating experiential environments, VM has it all. It’s interesting to see and predict what is next. As fashion is an industry which evolves by the day, for me, it is crucial to stay up to date both on my photography and fashion visual merchandising PGCE. What is not a surprise for the industry are collaborations. They have been happening for a long time now and I don’t think they will stop any time soon. For example, take Heidi Klum designing clothes and modelling for Lidl. Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid, Louis… Read More »EMPORIA : Blacks Visual X Proportion London

A Different Kind of Saturday

I can’t really remember the last Saturday or weekend I had free for myself. This fact actually makes me happy because I have been so busy with photoshoots that I still can’t believe how blessed I am to get the chance to meet so many different characters and talented people through my work! Photography has always been my passion and I worked hard to be where I am and have the clients and friends I have in the field. So yeah – blessed is how I feel! Weather in London has been a bit dark and grey lately so it was good to get a… Read More »A Different Kind of Saturday

Primark X Look Magazine

Who can resist stylish clothes on a budget especially with summer just around the corner? Well, not myself. Primark has you sorted for summer wherever you are spending it. The new HS18 collection definitely speaks of summer. Think about colourful earthly colours with beautiful floral prints. Add some vibrant colourful accessories to them and voila! That’s the only way I can help you picture the new collection’s clothes (and through the photos here OBVS). To promote and present few pieces of the collection, Primark hosted an influencer breakfast in partnership with Look Magazine. Selected lifestyle and fashion influencers arrived on the day to enjoy themselves with… Read More »Primark X Look Magazine

When in Marrakech

Hello, there dear reader and happy Monday to you! As this is my first Blog post, let me introduce myself. My name is Maria and I am a goal digger. If I was speaking to you last year, I wouldn’t be telling you what I’m about to tell you now. Why? Because my life was completely different and I would have never imagined me being where I am now. After several years of a roller coaster at University, I have managed to get a degree in Photography from the University of East London (back in 2016 – WHERE DID TIME GO?!). Life since then has… Read More »When in Marrakech
