'The world is like a book and those who do not travel read only a page' - St Augustine.
I've always loved photography. Using my parents point and shoot film and digital cameras from a young age meant I grew up with photography being a means of keeping memories captured forever.
My own personal passion for travel photography however started around 3 years ago when I discovered the likes of Foster Huntington, Cyrus Sutton and Kevin Russ who all broke from the chains of careers and make a living travelling and photographing their travels.
Their photos, blogs and stories inspired me hugely - I became obsessed with this idea of travelling and photographing the experience. I was hooked.
Film is my favourite medium to shoot with, nothing quite compares to the raw processes involved and the colours and textures within each photograph that film captures. However far too often when on the road due to the cost of film photography and the time it involves I often have to resort to using digital purely due to ease. In a perfect world however, it would be 100% film all the way.
Back in November I left England for a year of travel. Travelling is a thrill that very little compares to. That feeling of exploring a completely new environment and experiencing places, sounds and smells that you’ve never had before is something I live for.
I’ve met some amazing people through travelling and they’ve instantly become some of my closest friends. I spent 4 months travelling the East Coast of Australia, then on to 2 months road tripping New Zealand.
I then flew to Los Angeles and spent 3 weeks travelling the California Coast and I’m currently working as a photographer at a Summer Camp near Boston.
The reason I love working with HOWL London
is that their inspiration, motivation and creative drive towards life is something that I relate to strongly. All you need is a glance at their Instagram
to be inspired to go out and do something incredible each and every day and "stay inspired".
