In my latest interview I caught up with British menswear & grooming blogger Adam Walker of The Male Stylist. We spoke about the set backs bloggers can face when social media platforms decide to change the rules. View Post
Very recently it felt like I had turned a corner with street style photography. This time last year I was mostly posting lifeless looking pictures that did nothing to reflect my personality. This was really frustrating because good imagery is what I’ve been striving for from the beginning and boy it hasn’t been easy. Part of the issue was my confidence in front of the camera which I spoke about in this recent blog post. With practice I’m learning how to look more relaxed and carefree in images without resorting to a big cheesy grin. Beyond that I’m learning through trial and error how to keep things cohesive plus things to look for when location scouting and the best types of natural lighting. View Post
I received so much positive feedback from my recent post on confidence, how blogging is shaping me as a person. The inspiration to write that post suddenly came to me and I quickly wrote down everything I was feeling at that moment. In this sometimes materialistic world it’s nice to throw a bit of heartfelt realness amongst the perfectly staged ‘real lives’ we often put out. Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment, it warms my heart : )
Today I thought it would be fun to share some things I have learned along the way so far. View Post
I’m wearing a shirt from Maison Labiche AW/17-18.
I’m feeling frustrated with social media this week, well just Instagram to be honest. I received comments from my followers saying they hadn’t seen my posts in a while and I expect the algorithm has something to do with it. This situation goes to show the importance of maintaining a blog.
What on earth did we all do before Instagram? Imagine all the time we had each day before we found ourselves glued to our phones scrolling through an endless feed of photo’s. I enjoy Instagram as much as the next person, it’s a constant source of inspiration and a useful way to see what people are up to. It seems to have infiltrated the lives of nearly everyone I know and whilst I often hear complaints about the social platform, we just can’t seem to get enough of it.
