Vanda Ralevska

My name is Vanda Ralevska, and I am a semi-professional landscape photographer based in London. Photography has been my passion since my teens, and over the years it became an inseparable part of my life. It enables me to see things that normally stay unnoticed, and appreciate the beauty that exists within everyday scenes. I am passionate about capturing the world we live in, always searching for those fleeting moments of magic that transform it into something extraordinary.

I am predominantly a landscape photographer. In my images I strive to reflect the atmosphere, feeling, and sheer wonderment that our natural world can evoke within us. Having grown up in an industrial area of former Czechoslovakia, I soon learnt how to appreciate the beauty of the natural world, far away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Nowadays I find most inspiration in quieter scenes and intimate details, whether it is on the coast, in woodland, in the countryside, or even in cities, during quiet times. I don’t limit myself to one particular subject. Photography for me is more about the moments when I don’t want to be anywhere else but where I am. About being truly present in those moments, and enjoying them for what they are.

I am a Kase Filters Ambassador, and a member of Arena Photographers, World Women Art and Echiquier groups. I have had several successes in international competitions, including the International Garden Photographer of the Year and Black and White Spider Awards. I regularly take part in joint exhibitions, and give lectures at photographic clubs, groups and festivals, both in the UK and abroad. I hope to inspire others to find their own style, to look beyond the obvious, and to find joy while doing so.
