How do you edit your photos?
I use a mixture of Lightroom (mobile), VSCO and Snapseed. You can find more about my editing process, in my blog post, here. I’m hoping to upload a more update editing tutorial soon!
What camera do you use?
I use a Canon 70D to shoot most of my blog and Instagram content as well as my iPhone 7 plus. I tend to use a couple of different Canon lenses with the 70D, my favourites are the 50mm 1.8 and the 24mm 2.8.
What do you use to write on your pictures?
I use the Procreate app on my iPad.
When did you start blogging/your Instagram account?
Although I’ve always been very passionate about photography, I feel like I was quite late to the party when it comes to blogging! I started out on Tumblr around 2013 and began by mostly talking about and posting the occasional photo of the books I was reading. Then after a couple of years, at the the beginning of 2015, I decided to start an Instagram specifically for these book photos I was taking and it just kind of grew from there. This website was created in 2017 after I decided I needed a fresh space for my thoughts and photography.
Any tips for new bloggers?
I think it’s really important to post and share things you are genuinely passionate about & although there are a lot of blogs out there I think there is a space for everyone so I think it’s good to try and find your own space and work out what makes you unique. Understand and appreciate that it’s hard work & it takes time and patience to find your ‘thing’ and to become successful with it (whatever that might mean for you), you’ll probably make some mistakes along the way and that’s okay!

What inspires you and keeps you motivated?
I find that most of my inspiration comes from change, the changing of the seasons, travelling to new places, trying new things. I’m also constantly inspired by other photographers and artists so I’m always scrolling through Pinterest and visiting art museums.
