What inspired the name of your blog? I am a full time photographer so I used my photography name – my blog is a space for me to share my thoughts about my shoots as well as behind the scenes info of what my shoots entail. I also share some of my passions like cars and travel on my blog – as long as all images are taken by me.

How long have you been blogging for? I’ve had my blog for about 5 years now.

What difficulties did you come across when you first started blogging? I found it difficult to blog consistently. Sometimes I get too busy to blog and then people lose interest, it’s all about sharing new work consistently.

What do you think new bloggers need to know about blogging that most people don’t? It’s a full time job! It is hard work if you want to make a success of it. Success doesn’t happen overnight but rather after years of patiently working hard and keeping your eye on the prize.

What would you say has been a highlight of your blogging career thus far? I was invited to an event to speak about my marketing strategy, how I made a success of my business and how one can do the same for themselves. It was a huge honour!

Who are your favourite bloggers?
Baked Online (obvs)
Raw Explosions Blog (her writing is awesome)
Gary Pepper Girl

Which is the most read blog post on your blog and why do you think people like it? Siyaam’s wedding photos – “Simply Siyaam” was a blogger with a large following and I was lucky enough to capture her special day – when she shared the blog post and wrote on her page, my stats BOOMED. Who can resist gorgeous wedding photos?!

What else do you do besides blogging? Full time photographer.

Where do you see your blog in the next two years? I hope to reach an international audience with my photography blog & you tube and aim to travel overseas for photoshoots in the near future.

Do you look at your blog as a business, hobby or as a portfolio? Business – my blog is my way of marketing my business
