I’m a twenty-something* Brit with two main desires in life: to travel and photograph. I’m very happy when doing just one, but I’m in heaven when doing them together. I also have a penchant for crazy adventures, islands, offbeat places, hikes and snorkelling – all of which my poor camera(s) have to endure, and all of which you’ll find here on my travel blog.
My formal background is in writing: I did a degree in English and worked at a university for five years writing, editing, and proof reading content. During this time I taught myself photography and gradually my focus turned to photography – portraits, events, editorials, and even design. I’ve been a freelance photographer for the last three years now, and I teach photojournalism for 12 weeks a year at the same university.
Whilst all of this was going on my desire to travel only ever grew. I had my first taste of travelling solo at 18, when I signed up for volunteer work in Canada. It was both terrifying and awesome. Since then I’ve been to over 25 countries, often by myself and always on a budget, always photographing along the way.
