…me: My name is Anja. I’m German. In 2011, I grabbed my French boyfriend — whom I met in Finland — and moved to New Zealand to work for a Canadian company. After 3.5 years of living the dream in Middle Earth, it was time for us to move back to France (Paris), but our kiwi photos and stories will always mark the beginning of this blog. I work as Social Network Services Manager, offering advise on how to create a Social Media Strategy; the job overlaps with Community Management, Project Management, Customer Service Management, Content Creation and Marketing. I love that variety!
…my passion (beside Social Media): I do love travelling and am a passionate self-taught photographer. I currently prefer landscape, weather and urban shots, but like to experiment from time to time. Photography is not a business for me, but my favourite pastime; it gives me the chance to express myself, my feelings and share a small essence of all the magical moments that I discover along my way. I currently use my Canon EOS 60D for most photos, and I love Love LOVE Instagram to get my daily photo dose.
…my travels: I visited 30 countries so far, but my bucket list is still long (see map below). Exploring new locations and experiencing different cultures are a big part of who I am today. My personal Top 3 are: a) South Island New Zealand; b) South West of the USA, and c) La Reunion, a small French island in the Indian Ocean. Whenever I can I take my time to get to know a certain location before blogging about it, which helps to develop a different perspective. For example: Instead of publishing one single photo of a landscape, I enjoy revisiting the same location many times under different conditions.
…my page name: ae.i stands for ‘Anja Eichler’s Images’ (Surprise! I think I basically liked the minimalist look of the first three vowels in the alphabet when searching for a blog title). The name has been taken over from my former Posterous blog (aei.posterous.com), which was sadly shut down in April 2013, after the Posterous acquisition through Twitter. Since my blog was / is a pure leisure activity without financial gain I decided against moving all my former content. I published my personal Best Of on this WordPress blog though.
