I am convinced that role models can help us achieve our own wishes and goals. That’s why I launched the series “conscious creatives telling their stories”. Here I would like to introduce you again and again to people who are consciously and creatively shaping their lives.
Franzi Schädel from Schleswig-Holstein is a self-proclaimed eco-fluencer, an example for people who want to live more sustainably, but also a photographer in the name of love. I am fascinated by her diversity and gentleness. And the way she puts things in a nutshell.
Dear Franzi, …
… your life, your views and also your professional side have changed a bit in the last few years. How did that happen?
Soooo much has not changed at all, the principles were always there with me, but the screws had to be turned a little finer.
My awareness of our environment, our nature and the salvation of our world is getting bigger every day and there are – so is life – again and again corners in which one must look.
And I like to do that, I enjoy it and contrary to many opinions, I do not sacrifice anything.
… who and what inspires you?
People who really make things happen, who have an opinion and are sputtering with verve.
“For me, to live a creative life means to have the freedom to live out my ideas.”
… at some point, every person who deliberately deals with life will come to the question of what he/she can do with his actions to the world and to people. Have you ever asked yourself this question?
This question occupies me every day. The saying “a good deed every day” is not silly at all, we should all act that way. And if the good deed “only” consists of fishing a little foreign waste from nature.
… you are exchanging ideas with your followers in social media. Do you primarily need an exchange with like-minded people or do you also do as much (or even more) with yourself in the quiet little room?
I really need the exchange, it gives me tremendous pleasure and all my ideas only discussing with myself at home would not achieve my desired effect. That’s why I like to roar out into the world! 🙂
Of course, there are always topics that I first think through thoroughly before I take them outside.
… what does it mean for you to live a “creative life”?
To have the freedom to live my ideas and express myself in my work (in the case of photography) as I feel right now. Emotions are so important to my work, in all directions.
