Navigating Love From Steph
I’m a freelance photographer and travel blogger from the UK. My story really began back in 2010, when I moved abroad as part of my university degree.
I spent 6 months in Hamburg before moving to Paris for another 5 months. I spent my weekends out and about with my guidebooks and loved learning about the history and culture of the different neighbourhoods, discovering new places to eat, and finding hidden gems. It was during this time that I fell in love with photography.
After university, I moved to London for work and spent as much time as I could exploring the city and booking long weekends away in Europe.
London will always be one of my favourite cities, but after 6 years I’d had enough of the daily commute, the crowds and the delays, and knew I needed a change.
Growing up in the countryside, I’ve always been happiest outdoors in nature with my camera so I decided to apply for a working holiday visa to Canada. I never thought anything would come of it but two weeks before Christmas I got my 2-year working visa.
I spent a long time debating whether it was the right move but in June 2019 I finally took the leap, quit my job, and booked a one way ticket to Vancouver. I now call this wonderful city home and am so grateful to have the mountains, beach and sea all on my doorstep.
Behind the scenes
Outside of blogging, I work full time as a content and social media manager. I have over 7 years’ professional experience in building brands, developing integrated marketing campaigns, and creating content that connects with customers.
I have a passion for storytelling and aim to inspire and inform my readers through my photography and writing. If you’re interested in working together, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that I only work with companies which align with my values, travel style, and readers.
