Kristel Schneider Photography

If I had to introduce myself briefly I would say that I am a photographer and a workshop instructor who has specialized in nature and landscape photography. But that would just convey the visible part of my personal iceberg, as you can see it now. Before I could show that present portrait of mine, many little drops of life have filled in a vase that is not yet totally full. I was born in The Netherlands and lived a big part of my adult life in Amsterdam. I studied Human Resource Management and Communication and I worked the last 6 years of my other professional career as a Communication Adviser for a Pharmaceutical Company.
Everything changed in 2007 when I decided to move to Auvergne, in France and focus on my passion, photography. Over the years I have carried out private commissions, photo assignments. You can also find my work in many magazines and other publications.
