    var myImage = _mediaService.GetMediaByPath("/media/adgasgd/someimage.jpg")
    var folder = _mediaService.GetById(myImage.ParentId);

    Hi wilmar,

    I have found easier to use the umbraco helper and work with IPublished content.

    so if you are getting the image from the path then you can do that

    var myImage = _mediaService.GetMediaByPath("/media/adgasgd/someimage.jpg");
    var uHelper = Umbraco.Web.Composing.Current.UmbracoHelper;
    var iPublishedContentMyImage= uHelper.Media(myImage.Id);
    var privatePhotosFolder= iPublishedContentMyImage?.AncestorsOrSelf()?.Where(x => x.Name == "private photos")?.FirstOrDefault();
    if(privatePhotosFolder != null){

    With this one you can have multiple folders under your "Private Photos" folder

    (btw its not tested)

    Hope that helps
