    frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

    I currently shoot with Nikon camera bodies and a mix of Nikon and Sigma ART lenses.

    My main camera body is the Nikon D750, and my most-used camera lenses are my Sigma ART 14-24mm f/2.8, Sigma ART 24-70 f/2.8 ART, and my Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3.

    My current business as a freelance photographer, travel blogger, and digital marketing consultant allows me to be location-independent and work from anywhere in the world (well, as long as there’s wifi!) Often, I will partner with tourism boards, hotels and other travel services to provide them with the content deliverables, promotion  + marketing services that their business can benefit from in exchange for covering my accommodation, flights, etc. Deliverables can vary depending on the brand’s needs, but often looks like: professional photography for their website, video content for their social media, promotion via my social media channels, or a sponsored blog on my website. Prior to this, I worked professionally in various fields (such as higher education, nonprofit, health and telecom) in digital marketing-focused roles, such as: marketing manager, web developer, and content strategist. I was able to find a way to combine my skillset to create a freelance + consulting business that provides me with the freedom, flexibility, and variety of location I crave in life.
    Though I love what I do, it definitely did not happen overnight! It consisted of a lot of time, hard work, hustle, research, and plenty of trial and error. I’ve been working at (and growing in) my passion for photography since I was a teenager. From my love of writing came travel blogging (which first actually started out as a healthy living blog!), and then writing professionally for publications. Social media came later. Over time (and with a lot of consistency) I was able to grow a following and begin partnering with brands, tourism boards, etc.
    I always find this question so tricky, as there are so many beautiful places to choose from! I love Tukey, Bali, Hawaii, Philippines. I love Big Sur in the USA and Baja in Mexico. And the Rocky Mountains in Canada will always be a permanent favorite!
