Who am I?
Welcome to my Travel Photography page!
My name is Myriam Leforestier, I was born and raised in France. At 19 years old I left my dear Country to live abroad. I spent time in Spain & then studied in the USA, and I have been based in the Netherlands since 2000.
Born in an artistic environment as my Grandfather was a photographer, my Mother is a traveler and painter, I received my first camera at 10 years old. I simply never move around anywhere without a camera in my bag or pocket! I also have a photography business established in the Netherlands since 2005, realizing wedding and outdoor photoshoots. In my photo studio in the Netherlands, I capture smiles.
As an avid mostly solo traveler, I strive to create extraordinary memories of people, places, wildlife and cultures around the world. I am completely hit by wanderlust! Throughout the years, I have been using any free time available outside a regular corporate job to visit the wonderful world we live in, with my dear backpack full of patches. I absolutely love to travel, but I also love to return home. I go to places and/or countries I haven’t been to. Sometimes I do return to some of them, though… I have visited 90 countries so far!
In 2019 have proudly reached the Platinum level in the frequent flyer program of KLM/Air France (SkyTeam Alliance). I am always planning and looking forward to the next trip!
As the travel inspirations came from my Mother since I was a little child, I like to travel with her once per year to mostly a country where both of us haven’t been, we create memories together.
Travel and Photography are an evidence to me. I travel for my eyes and always back up my travels with photography, without filters nor presets. I bring you the world through my eyes with authentic photographs. Check out my world travel map ! I am sharing through pictures places I have visited, and as of now, kilometers of films and files need some sorting out 🙂 I am looking forward to sharing the wonderful and memorable places I have been to, the hidden gems I encountered, hoping it will inspire you to see the beautiful world we live in!
