The road from Math to Photos

posted on 27th of october, 2014

Hi all,

I'm new to Dreamstime, I only started contributing last weekend. I have hit the 50 mark in uploads (yes, I'm a newbie), and I thought that the 50 mark, and me deciding to go exclusive, warranted an introduction.

My name is Nadia. During the day I am an actuary...which basically means I work with a lot of numbers and try to tell the future. As much as I love my job, I need a creative outlet every now and then. Enter photography.

I've always enjoyed taking pictures, at weddings, in nature reserves, anywhere really. But when I received my first SLR 2 years ago, everything changed. My eyes were opened to the beauty around me, and photography became a serious hobby for me. I don't find a lot of time to take photos, but when I do I love every second of it. I see the world as a series of photographs, a landscape of beauty and potential.

I grew up in South Africa, and my passion for nature and animals has translated into a favourite photographic theme for me: wildlife.

I now live in Europe, and this has added a new dimension to my passion - cityscapes and landscapes, and travel photography.

I'm glad that I have found somewhere to potentially use my photos, instead of just posting them on Facebook for my friends to see. I am looking forward to learning from this experience and improving my photography more and more with every lesson.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have an amazing day!
