Barbara Schmidt, GMPSA
Born and living in the Ruhr area, Germany. She graduated in administrative sciences and retired in September 2015, after more than 40 years as a civil servant. Barbara and her Fuji XT 2 have been on the road since May 2014. She learned all by trial and error, with lots of love. The motifs are varied, because everything that arouses their interest is photographed! She doesn't go out with the intention of bringing a certain picture with her, but goes to places, where she wants to be and expects what may come there. This brings special and very successfully images.
Since the 1st acceptance 21.03.2016 at German International DVF-Photocup more than 5000 acceptances with over 500 awards have been given. Barbara earned her PPSA in 2018, EPSA in 2019, and both MPSA and MPSA2 in 2020. She earned her GMPSA in 2021.
