Hi and welcome! Let me tell you few things about myself! I was born and grew up in beautiful Dubrovnik in Croatia. Have always loved travelling and learning about different cultures, meeting people from different countries and discovering magical places where the road would take me.  

After graduating at the Faculty of Philosophy in Croatian capital Zagreb and gaining Bachelor degree in Sociology for a while I lived and worked in my hometown Dubrovnik. After that for more than 8 years I lived abroad in beautiful countries such as Scotland, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Switzerland, having different jobs and dreaming of being a professional photographer. Finally one day I have decided to turn my dreams into reality!

Having successfully finished the online photography school “The Photography Institute” and combining my two great life passions, food and photography, I now work as a freelance photographer specialising in food, travel and lifestyle photography. I'm living in Zagreb, Croatia and am continuing my food & travel photography journey which you can follow on my blog Travelling oven

I work as a freelance food & travel photographer and a full-time blogger and I'm available for:

Food, Travel & Lifestyle photography and styling, Sponsored posts and other creative collaborations. See more on 'Work with me' section of my Travelling oven blog.

Some of my food photography work is available for license via The Picture Pantry.

P.S. Some of the things I love are: photography (obviously! :D), travelling, snow, fog and rain, early morning mist, sounds of forest, watching the waves, being by the river, dark chocolate, cherries and coffee! :-)


Thank you for visiting!
