I love that photography can transport me. I can get lost in an image. A good one. And good is a subjective term. What I like about an image might be the thing the next person hates. In some images I can almost feel the colours, as their warmth and vibrancy draw me in or their cool stillness have me searching for a patch of sun to warm up. I can imagine the sounds, aromas and textures around the photographer when a shot was taken.

I love that it is a polarising art form. I love that it is accessible to so many people, that we all do it for such a range of reasons and in such a rich and beautiful array of styles. That diversity inspires me. To search for something among all those styles that is my own and work on it. To develop my skills and keep taking better images.

I dreamed of National Geographic and the amazing photographers who have consistently delivered stunning images to the world for so many years. A dream I thought too big to hope for. But I want this life of adventure. The life of a professional travel photographer. This scholarship can teach me technical abilities but more important is the methods and work habits of a successful award winning photographer. The most amazing learning opportunity possible.
