Aleksandra Czepek

Photography has always been my passion. I am a graduate of cosmetology by education and I have always wanted and created beauty. Almost two years ago I decided that I wanted to take up photography professionally. I started attending various workshops and guiding my style. I want my photos to have a bit of magic, so that they will take the recipient into a different world. Currently, I live in a paradise in Zanzibar and create frames in my studio and in the colorful outdoors around me. I love photography and I will continue to develop in that direction.

People’s Choice Award belongs to:

Claudia Marzo

I’m Claudia Marzo, an almost 25 years old born in Spain.
I’m a self-taught photographer that started to study photography so I wanted to joing a photography school, but sadly it closed and I couldn’t start my studies. Instead of giving up and studying something else that would not make me happy I started to rehearse by myself and after years of practice I got to find my own style. I’m stpecialized in children and family photography and always work outdoor with natural light, I love the sunlight and the warm sunset colors, I believe they create the perfect scenes to portray the little ones. One of the things that charactizes me is my edit style, I use warm and saturated colors trying to tansform everyday scenes into images that convey the innocence, naturalness and spontaineity of children. My goal is to continue creating photographs that touch people’s hearts and are going to be contempled for generations.
