Hello and welcome to the Smile, Snap, Sparkle!
My name is Matea and let me show you around a bit.
I'm a director, photographer and writer from Croatia, currently living between Zagreb and Sibenik but due to the crazy nature of my profession and freelance life it's better to say that I'm constantly on the road, filming and shooting new stories and adventures. And that's what I adore the most.
Smile, Snap, Sparkle is all about storytelling, photography, exploring new places and living your life the way you want it to (and never giving up on your dreams). It's about being the best version of yourself and having loads of fun along the way. I share my photography and film projects, talk about new ideas and things that inspire me on a daily basis and share stories from personal experiences.
Being on the road is one of my favourite things to do and if I could, if would constantly wander around with a camera in my hand, documenting stories and distant places.
I love spending time exploring the nature and I'm probably the biggest seaside lover in the world. Is it because I was born near the sea or something else, I don't know but it's my happy place and I could never grow tired of it.
I hope you'll enjoy my blog and if you have any further questions or would love to collaborate, please don't hesitate to let me know at:
