Hi, I’m Amy!

I’m a travel blogger, amateur photographer, biology student, polyglot and hopeless romantic.

I first picked up a camera in the summer of 2013, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Bouncing back and forth between my friend’s Nikon, my mom’s Canon, my iPhone, iPod camera (yes, some of the pictures on my “Early Work” page were taken with an iPod), and eventually my own Nikon, I’m convinced that photography is not about the gear, but about the person behind it.

I’m well aware that I might not be accepted as a “real” photographer until I have all the proper gear and technical practice. That’s okay with me. For me, photography is about expressing yourself as with any other form of art. It’s about making people see things from a different perspective. My photography, while not perfect, represents me, and my world. I put my heart and soul into my work, and in that I feel successful.

As I learned to love photography, I learned to love myself, and today it is still one of the things in my life that brings me the most joy. As I continue to learn more about technique, I have to work harder and harder, but it’s worth it.
