HI THERE, I’M NATHALIE! 

I’m the founder of Utrecht Photo Challenge, and here’s how it all started…

GAMES

For as long as I can remember, my parents loved to turn daily situations into a game. We were out of bread? We’d go shoot some hoops in the backyard to decide who would have to walk to the bakery. My mom bought some juice that none of us liked? The one to guess the most ingredients would get to pick the unlucky person who’d have to finish it. To this day, living 700 km apart, my family and I still hold our own made-up competitions through text messages. The creativity that I got from them to turn daily-life things into something fun is something I am really thankful for, and that inspired me to create Utrecht Photo Challenge.

PHOTOGRAPHY

I grew up in a small village in France and moved to Utrecht, Netherlands, when I was 18. After life in the French countryside, I was amazed by all that Utrecht has to offer. Wandering around the streets of the city is still one of my favorite things to do. There is always something new to see, which led me to buy a camera and start capturing Utrecht’s beauty. I was going for my weekly photography stroll in September 2019, when the idea hit me: I wanted others to discover these beautiful spots by playing a fun game.

PERFECT COMBO

Utrecht Photo Challenge perfectly combines my passions for photography, games, and the city of Utrecht. My goal is to transmit the best of these three elements to you, in the form of a city game.
