Today I met in Dortmund with Edith Hunzinger (see photo), the Director of the Seychelles Tourist Office in GermanyEdith was born on Mahé and not only knows each of the touristically developed islands due to her position at the STB ("Seychelles Tourism Board").
For almost three hours the two of us sat together in the sun (thank you very much for your time, Edith!) and went from one topic to the next. In the following 72 hours we wouldn't have run out of things to talk about, but as we all know, everything has to come to an end sometime. Further meetings are planned.
Since Edith is completely enthusiastic about the photographs I have brought back from my ten trips to the Seychelles so far, the pleasant conclusion of our first meeting is that I will be working as a official accredited photographer for the Seychelles Tourism Board and thus also get access to islands that I only know from the stories of widely travelled globetrotters or from various glossy magazines! 😀
And who knows, maybe there will be a wedding on one of the island resorts or on one of the main islands at the same time, which I can photograph to provide the STB with nice pictures of a Wedding in the Seychelles ... 😀
