Learning to live, one destination at a time

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Australia | Tuesday, 11 December 2012 | 5 photos

I am a 20 year old university student from Australia who has been privileged enough to backpack around Europe seeing all it has to offer. My dream is to travel and experience the world and everything in it. I have always had a passionate interest in photography but have never had the right tools in which to express my passion. I feel the opportunity to be mentored by Jason Edwards in Oman would give me that outlet. People say "live in the moment", but to me, taking a photo is a way to keep that moment going and to take that experience with you. I think photography allows people to see the world in a beautiful way, they just have to find the right angle. I feel that were I given a proper outlet and mentoring, then my photography passion and skills could flourish. I feel I deserve the opportunity and the privilege to learn and develop my skills in photography as i'm driven by my passion for beautiful photography. I believe its not what you use to take the photo but whats in the photo. I like to think I'm a romantic and that I see the world with rose coloured glasses and I would love the chance to show that to people.
