My View of Giza

My Scholarship entry - My view of Giza

Egypt | Sunday, 13 January 2013 | 5 photos


In 2010 I packed my bags, left my job and went backpacking around the world. The travel bug had bitten me hard many years ago and this time I was going to do what I always dreamed of. It was to experience new places, to eat, to explore and to meet new people who challenged my view of the world. But most of all, it was to improve my photography. I knew that spending 10 months travelling with just a backpack and a camera could teach me more than anything I could learn at home.

I spent the year taking photos. Documenting my adventure; pushing myself and my photography. My audience was me and the friends and family who ready my blog. I wanted to share these different parts of the world with everyone who couldn't be there with me. I wanted to show them the beautiful places, the hidden gems and sometimes the parts that I didn't like too. After the year was over and I was home I realised I wanted more. Not necessarily more travel, but I wanted to share these places with more people and I want to challenge their view of the world.

This scholarship is a huge opportunity. Not only will it improve my photos, but it will help take the next step towards sharing my photography with the world.
