What photography equipment do you use?
I currently swap between two cameras: the Olympus PEN E-PL8 (with either the 45mm lens or the kit lens), and the Canon EOS M (using the Canon EF 50mm lens). I also regularly shoot with a selection of London-based photographers, therefore most of my style posts are shot on their equipment.
I wouldn’t say I’m a particularly skilled or confident photographer. And if you’re in the same boat this post should help you get to grips with the basics of blog photography.
All of my blog images are edited on Photoshop and/or Lightroom. And for Instagram I edit in Snapseed and VSCO.
Do you currently have any partnership opportunities?
I always love working with likeminded brands to produce exciting and engaging content. Whether that’s in the form of sponsored blog and Instagram posts, or events such as blogging workshops and styling events. For more information please get in touch via my contact page.
Do you have any advice for new bloggers?
The blogosphere is a crowded space, so I think it’s really important to carve out a clear focus and identity first and foremost. My e-book, 10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Blogging, is packed with practical tips to help you launch a successful lifestyle blog. But the most important ingredients are dedication and a clear focus when it comes to content.
Is it true you own a life-sized cardboard cutout of Ryan Gosling?
Yes, it is indeed true… Ryan currently lives behind my wardrobe and comes out on special occasions.
