        How it all started

        When I first moved to Germany from Ireland, I was mainly a wedding photographer. When I moved to Berlin I realised quickly that fewer people got married in Berlin, and that the photographer/couple ratio wasn’t helping either. So I adapted my workflow by providing workshops! By getting out of my comfort zone and starting a new adventure, I accidentally created the business of my dreams.

        The Photography Workshops

        I started by teaching a photography workshop, so I could educate others with my skills and share my experience. I created an account with Airbnb Experiences and I started testing the workshops with some friends. This was a great way to test the water but also to get my first reviews online! And it worked! Within a couple of weeks, I got my first bookings!

        The Paparazzi Tours

        As I missed photographing people myself, I decided to also create an experience whereby I photograph people. This is how the Paparazzi Tour in Berlin was born! I love meeting people from all over the world and the combination of travel, photography and people really connected me to my work. I meet many solo travellers, families and couples from all over the world.

        The Macrame Workshops

        When it was getting colder, I was thinking to myself… how can I still connect with people, but be warm and creative at the same time. I’ve been knitting and making macrame pieces since 2014 and at that time I also opened my Etsy shop. So I thought, why not start a macrame workshop in Berlin? And I feel so lucky as winter AND summer I get bookings from people in Berlin and the rest of the world. We enjoy a cosy time together and connect over crafting whilst sipping tea or coffee. It has also been a popular event for hen parties in Berlin!

        And then Covid-19 happened

        Yeah… that happened. So I had to quickly adapt! I took all my workshops and experiences online! It’s very different but still a lot of fun! It’s been the perfect way to keep in touch with my clients and by providing online workshops, I got a global reach now. This is great as I get to meet people I would’ve never met otherwise!
