About V-Light

ABOUT


“Photography to me, is not just capturing a moment in time but capturing the feeling and sharing the beauty of  it. When someone tells me that my photo made them dream or made them feel like they were there, then that’s the biggest compliment.”

 

Hello friend, welcome to my world

  • My name is Alexandra Konstantinoudi but you can call me Alex.
  • I’m a professional Photographer/Graphic Designer, currently living in Vienna, Austria.
  • V-Light Photography is my freelance project, focused on landscape and architecture photography.

 


50% Greek, 50% Austrian, 100% Universal


 

  • I was born and raised in a small village by the sea in Greece, called Kriopigi.
  • In 2005 i moved to Thessaloniki, Greece to pursue my dream and study Photography.
  • In 2008 I graduated and got my Bachelor of Arts in Commercial and Creative photography.

  • In August 2013, i started this blog and it was one of the best decisions i ever made. The WordPress community is amazing! ♥

  • I moved to Vienna, Austria in September of 2014. This was only possible because of all the lovely people who purchased a print and helped me finance this move through my Indiegogo campaign “Art sale for a new life” that got 101% founded. I’ll always be endlessly thankful to all my supporters! You are the best ♥

“I love landscape photography (both natural and urban landscapes). I also enjoy to do macro, action and sports, real estate, architecture photography, artistic events, creative and alternative portraits.”

  1. Nice meeting you Alex!
    I just found your page on another Photography Blog & I like what you are doing! This profile pic above (with the painting) tells a lot and is stunning 🙂 Kind regards from a New Follower, also Enthusiastic Photographer!

    1. Hey 🙂 Thank you so much for the kind words! I really appreciate you following me 🙂 Photography is such a beautiful way to capture what talks to our souls and that has always been my goal.

  2. Bonjour Alex

    I was honoured that you took time to look at my pictures. Ihave only scratched the surface of your wonderful blog but found myself spellbound by your Visions ebook photos and feel inspired to try and produce one myself – do you recommend Blurb? is it user friendly?

    Looking forward to coming back for a longer and more liesurely visit soon.

    Regards

    1. Hello Dan 🙂

      Thank you for taking the time to leave me such a nice comment, it is much appreciated! Blurb is a great site and offers many tools for you to create your book. Initially my book was available only as a printed copy, i wanted to make a collection with my old photos, not a lot of text, i made it mainly for me but if anyone else was interested as well, why not? 🙂 My experience with making and designing the book was very smooth…Blurb offers some free software with a lot of templates and you can customize them as you wish. It was very easy and you can effortlessly create a professional and clean looking book. What i don’t like about Blurb is that it is very expensive…You need to buy a copy of your own book before it can be available for sale and the price is just too high in my opinion, leaving you with just a tiny margin for profit. And even if you say that you don’t want to make any profit i still find the base price rather high. The print quality is amazing though. I recently decided to make the book available as an e-book too and again had to pay something for that to happen…but you can have more profit from the e-book since there is no expensive printing and shipping involved. I’m just not sure if you can make only an e-book and have no printed version available…I can look it up for you if you want. That said, i do recommend Blurb and i will use it again for some future books that i have in mind 😉

      Best regards,

      Alex
