By day, I work in finance, but in my spare time, I unleash my inner creative; I travel the world, photographing unbelievable experiences and share them with my wanderlusting followers.
I remember, before Instagram became the ‘it’ thing, I met a friend who worked for a big tech company who also happened to capture these gorgeous travel and landscape images. When I first saw his Instagram, I realised it could be a real creative outlet and my outlook on photography changed. Finally, it has become so accessible to everyone.
Mobile technology is everything when it comes to being a millennial, but especially as a digital influencer. I often find myself on social media looking for the next new café in Melbourne, or researching for work, or soaking up creative inspiration for my blog. I also use Adobe Lightroom/VSCO to edit my content, which is so easy because it syncs from my mobile to my laptop. I am constantly switching between my phone and laptop, depending on what I need to edit and what channels I need to upload to.
If I could tell my younger self anything, it would be to stop building yourself a safety net, and don’t be scared to jump!
These days, I’m still learning to take that leap of faith. I think its human instinct to enjoy stability, but with experience and wisdom, I’ve learnt that sometimes it’s better let go and give yourself a chance to follow your dreams and mistakes along the way. That’s living.
