In Kharkiv (or Kharkov if you feel more Russian) I gave a little prospect about my studies and work at a local fotocollege named Fotokolo. The students were more interested in my travel and photography than in my prepared lectures about "Tilt&Shift Lenses" and "Shooting and Editing using Camera RAW-formats".
In Ukraine I was invited to give a lecture at the Department of Media and Communications at Karazin's Kharkiv National University. My main focus was to tell the students about free software. For a practical approach I chose the subject "How to create small business websites with WordPress". I got my first Russian language "Diploma" for this volunteer lessons.
This WordPress based website is an online counterpart to a classical amateur photo magazine. It was started as a co-production with my diploma master Ulrike Häßler. I take care of the website as an admin and occasionally write articles about photo-technics, lenses and travel photography.
The organic farm community "Hofgemeinschaft Heggelbach" asked for a site to intodruce their work in organic farming and regenerative energies. Also it was the task to promote their holiday apartments. I chose a setup of WordPress with integrated Gallery2, which enables to publish a lot of images. The web statistics tell that visitors want to see a lot of images before they proceed to the booking form.
