Me myself and selfie

Why I take pictures of myself?

Knowing how to take great photos of yourself is a skill. We are called the ‘selfie’ generation but I don’t think I take selfies anymore. I feel like it’s more than that, beyond the ‘dirty’ word. Read More »

Instagram Interview #8 – Freelancing Special

What’s it like being a photographer – with Claire Storey’s Photography

If you have come across my blog because you follow my instagram page then you probably have a keen interest in photography, or at least an interest in images being created and captured on film that tell a story. Perhaps you have your own Instagram page or blog or DSLR and you are taking photos of your children to capture the everyday. Then imagine that you turned that hobby into a job – imagine if you actually became a photographer. That’s exactly what Claire from Claire Storey’s Photography did. She had a dream, she had absolutely no photography background and was able to teach herself to become an acclaimed newborn photographer. Read More »

The Instagram Interviews #5

Something that I have long wanted to do and not yet found the time is to start is to vlog. This is not a recent desire, but one that goes all the way back to when I first discovered PixiWoo vlogging in their bedrooms about 5/6 years ago. I was training to become a makeup artist and they totally inspired me, however at the time I didn’t have the balls to do it. Now the vlogging is becoming a lifestyle for many, and some are able to earn enough to commit to it as a full time career, so its clear to see what a powerful media outlet in can be. Then I found this dynamic due, vlogging their way through their first year together I must admit I became a bit addicted to their vlogs.Read More »

An Interview With An Influencer

This is the second in the Instagram Interview series where we take a closer look at some of my favorite and most inspiring accounts that I follow on Instagram. If you read my first installment with just.isla.and.i then you will know how much of a IG obsessive I am. I stalk many accounts on a daily basis but one of the accounts that I have been following since before I even changed my Instagram name to @homewiththebuckleys (it was previously my collage nickname!), since before I had discovered how to edit not using an Instagram filter and way before I even knew what a hashtag was, I followed and adored the beautiful photos of @sienna.and.iRead More »
