In June 2011 I left my country (Greece) in order to spend three months in Vienna. It was for a summer holiday, to take a course in German.
Although I had a ticket booked to go back to Athens, I decided to stay in Vienna longer to pursue my dreams and to do things that I had never done before. I left my job, family, and friends in Greece, although I had none of those in Vienna. But the city itself was an inspiration, and I was in search of new challenges.
Initially it was a bizarre decision, but despite all the problems and difficulties, I was convinced that this was the right thing to do, and that hopefully things would work out for me.
In the past I worked for the fashion industry and in many different language schools as a language tutor. Now I work as a photographer, content creator, and editor behind The Viennese Girl blog. For collaborations and bookings please contact me here.
THE SPIRIT OF TVG
TVG is all about photography, experiences and feelings. TVG is for those who like beautiful things in life, and more specifically, for strong independent girls who stand on their own feet and are capable of achieving great things.
Considering the fact that technology nowadays lessens the distance between us, this blog represents the idea of bringing me closer to interesting and like-minded people all over the world and sharing my perspectives with them.
This blog opens a door to the world, and celebrates new beginnings, changes and challenges — all the small and big things that bring joy to life. My vision is to keep it positive, playful, and multidimensional, and to bring value to others’ lives by creating useful and interesting content.
Since TVG went online, it has been featured both in print and online in prestigious magazines, newspapers and websites such as BBC NEWS and Condé Nast Traveller, and I have had the honor of collaborating in various projects with brands I love, such as Tiffany & Co, Swarovski, Dolce & Gabbana, CHANEL, FENDI, L’Oréal Vichy, Samsung, Nespresso, Sacher hotels, Austrian Airlines, Air France and others.
