A Bit About Me
Finding my vocation in life was difficult for me, I worked for 10 years in the retail and hospitality industries, it was enjoyable but never fulfilling. I always thought work was work, and what I enjoyed doing (taking photos and traveling) more of a hobby. So when I moved to France with my family in 2011, I got the chance to start over. I had the opportunity to change my life, find a different career, so why not make my passion my profession. I spent a year adjusting to my new surroundings, renovating my new home and learning the new language. After a while I decided to learn more about how to turn my love of photography into a career. I set up my business EIRL Seretny Photographie in 2013.
I aim to deliver what the client wants. That said most photographers have their own style and that is what attracts you to them, and what makes them stand out. If I could describe my photos in one word it would be ‘natural’. I use my equipment to enable me to capture moments authentically at the picture taking stage, rather than relying on computer enhancements afterwards. I like to take photos outdoors where possible and limit the amount of ‘processing’ or ‘adjusting’ of the image in editing software. I keep my photography quite candid to take a snap shot of a specific moment in time. As a result my photography captures authentic and natural moments in time, limiting computer manipulation.
I have been lucky enough to visit many different countries, in 4 different continents, and will continue to do so. I love nothing more than visiting and experiencing new places and new cultures. I started traveling at an early age, with my family visiting a lot of France and Spain, also having holidays in Crete, Cyprus, Tenerife, Mallorca…..
I went trekking in the mountains of morocco when I was at school taking in the sights and wonders of Marrakech and Mount Toubkal. I have also visited Poland as I have family originating from there and from Italy, which I have toured (Venice, Pisa, Florence and Rome). I spent 2 Months in Australia, and only managed to scratch the surface of spectacular views and places that country has to offer. I recently went to the states staying in New York, Chicago, Boston, Miami and Orlando. My most recent big adventure was in January when went to India and Nepal……Check out my galleries for photos.
