Blogger Diary: A Weekend Away

When you live in a city, you are constantly surrounded by things; people, buildings, noises… it never seems to stop. Sometimes it’s nice to leave it all behind and get away. The feeling of open space and looking out at landscape that goes on for miles is something that truly inspires me. I spent a lot of time traveling out west growing up, and I often yearn for the beautiful views that exist there. Read More

Based in: The UK, living on and off in both England and Ireland. I am half Irish and half South African (born and raised in Durban, South Africa). Sometimes I do feel like a bit of a gypsy…

Shoots with: digital or film, depending on my mood. The first camera I ever purchased (pentax 35 mm) is the one I always return to when I get tired of using digital. I love the simplicity of it. other than that, I use my canon dslr.

Favorite subject: portraiture is my thing. I love to photograph people I meet on my travels and friends who I am exploring the world with.

Inspired by: Travel. Even if I am not venturing far I like to feel like I’m exploring somewhere new. When I’m not traveling, I sift through thousands of blogs and magazines for inspiration. I refer back to a lot of films too, mostly ones I watched as a teenager for some reason. I am drawn to photograph places with beautiful light. I think because it reminds me of home and those amazing African sunsets.

Random fact: I am terrible with directions. Whilst traveling in Italy, my friend and I made the headlines of a local newspaper – we missed our last bus home from the beach, got lost in the local town center, and arrived home very late in the evening. Our host was so worried she called the police and had most of the town searching for us. I will never forget the neighbors coming in the next morning with the paper, laughing at us while muttering something in Italian.
