Introduction - Alin Popescu

Hi everyone,

My name is Alin, I've been a professional photographer since 2006 and a hobbyist photographer since 2003. After many years in the business, doing also camera tests and reviews, I've become the first Sony Europe Imaging Ambassador from Romania, but after almost 5 years with the title, life got me to Sweden where I live since 2019.

Here, I started from zero, no contacts, no one knowing me, just me and my photography. Three years later, I find myself at home, full-time photographer once again, doing what I love most - photography (and some video too :D).

In Romania I've mostly shot weddings and had workshops, but in Sweden I've embraced the art of photographing houses for real estate, a huge business in this nordic land. Love it, and even though I miss photographing weddings, I still embrace more the minimalistic style and the beauty of nordic design.

As a hobby, I do landscape and wildlife.

Welcome to the family Elin.

I love your story and how you were able to move toward your dreams and goals. Nothing feels better than actively creating the life you want to live. Many people are afraid to do this. You should be really proud and I look forward to seeing your eye and career continue to develop.  Keep up the amazing work!

ps.I always loved this quote and hope it inspires you the way it has inspired me.

"The future turns out to be something that you make instead of find. It isn’t waiting for your arrival, either with an arrest warrant or a band nor is it any further away than the next sentence, the next best guess, the next sketch for the painting of a life portrait that might become a masterpiece. The future is an empty canvas or a blank sheet of paper, and if you have the courage of your own thought and your own observation you can make of it what you will."

Beautiful pictures... you probably already hear that a lot. If your nature and landscape pictures look this stunning, I would be curious what amazement your wedding photography portfolio would look like. 😍

Can you share tips on how you progressed from hobbyist to professional photography? Any advice for a beginning newbie?
