Just a 24 year old Austrian Photographer saying hello :)
Hello / Hallo / Servus!
Hello fellow Steemits :) About one week ago I had no idea that an awesome place like this even existed, and today I am already introducing myself. First of all I hope I can be a part of this community and keep the creative vibes that I am feeling here up.
I’m Toby, I am in my mid 20s and live in the quite beautiful capital of Austria. I’m doing my master studies in Digital Media Technologies and work as a part time photographer. For a living I mostly do real estate projects or photo-/videography work at weddings. Don’t expect any pictures from that, I rather want to excite you with my travel and hiking pictures. My first actual post is going to be about my last summer trip to Chernobyl (Ukraine). And in the next couple of weeks you are going to see some awesome photos from my backpacking trip to Thailand and Vietnam.
About my pictures.
I want my pictures to tell a story, to provide a deeper thought or some kind of special meaning. To provoke to think. Even if it’s just for one moment. Life is so freaking spectacular, but unfortunately, we sometimes lose touch with this wonderful place. I like to remind people how awesome it is, and I also want you to remind me as well. We are currently travelling with 107,000 km/h around the sun while I’m typing these words. So, let’s all make this an awesome ride, with all the positivity there is. We are in this together.
Long story short: Expect some nice pictures, but with decorative words around it. Some facts about me: I do all kind of sports like hiking, running, swimming, lifting weights or playing football (not much anymore :/) and enjoy a complex discussion. I also like to travel if I got some spare time. As I am doing my Master in the field of Video Post-Production you also are probably going to see some little VFX-work. But I don’t want to announce too much yet.
I am not sure yet, I’m not really planning anything long time. I would love to work something meaningful in the future where I can actually help people with my skills, but I am not sure which exact direction I am heading to. Even though working as a photographer and studying Post Production is a lot of fun for me I know that it doesn’t help world right now. So, who knows what I am going to do. Suggestions are welcome.
So why steemit?
Because I actually think that the percentage of creative and inspiring people here is way higher than anywhere else. I can probably improve myself and my work through this platform and furthermore I hope that I can deliver some positive content for you.
Instagram – YouTube
If you want to hit me up on Instagram you obviously can, I am probably going to post more pictures there because nobody bothers with text there anyway: Instagram
I also sometimes post reviews on YouTube, but they are probably only interesting for photography/videography nerds:
I hope that’s everything. If you have any questions just write a comment as I would love to answer it 😊
