Far far away from her familiar Austrian home, the land of the long white cloud, New Zealand, inspired Carmen to chase mountain peaks and sun rays. In every free minute that her university degree and two jobs allowed, she slowly went on to venture off to lands across the waters; soon also with a camera in hands.
Fast forward to three years later, leaping from corporate to creative, Carmen decided to step into the unknown and follow the urge to pursue photography. A loyal following of 130k+ on social media, several National Geographic online features, many trusted brand partnerships and more than three dozen countries later, the once unknown has morphed itself into a beautiful, messy reality the photographer is eager to share with you.
To create more than to consume are words the 25 year old lives by.
