Your Questions Answered: Final Part

I know I'm late with this but forgive me. Last month was uber-hectic over here. With traveling, photographic jobs and editing, I couldn't really answer thoughtfully to these beautiful questions. But here are the final ones

okeoghene  asked:

From your welcome note you said you are a virtual assistant, how did you get to be that?

My position as virtual assistant is fairly new, but I’ll get to where I’m supposed to be.

After nearly ten years of blogging I knew I had something to offer people but I didn’t know what and how. This was the case until I ran to Elizabeth Bradley, the awesome lady behind Savouring Simpicity, for help. Elizabeth was so helpful, for taking the time to coach me and help me pinpoint the resources I have to offer.

I have Elizabeth Bradley to thank for this great opportunity to be able to work with people throughout the world. She is my virtual coach and helped me pinpoint what I can offer to busy working people that are in need for an assistant to run their blogs and websites.

What kind of jobs do you assist with?

I work with new bloggers to build up an attractive blog that they can’t wait to show off to their friends or clients. I also work with busy business owners who want to have a solid online presence, providing guidance and sometimes blog content.

How many pictures in average do you take in a day?

That depends on the mood, but anything between 50-100 photos, then I eliminated nearly all of them. I’m always practicing and getting to know the light and composition I love most.

What kind of camera do you use?

I use Canon6d on most portraits here on my blog and my Facebook business page. On my IG account {{lifeoftoi}} I use my iPhone, so convenient and easy to share photos on social media in that way.

Did you learn photography from a professional or everything you know you taught yourself?

My very first proper job was as a photo-developer, so I worked with various professional photographers. My boss was a photographer, and he allowed me to use top end photo-cameras on my school and weekend trips or capturing weddings for my family or their children. I would observe and then try to emulate the way they captured. I practiced a lot capturing friends, family members and doing self-portraits. Before starting my current small photography business I started taking online classes through @CreativeLive. They offer FREE photography (and more) classes with world class tutors, you can then purchase their courses to have them always on your computer. I’ve been also taking some courses through @clickinmoms to enhance my creativity.

The short answer is yes, I'm self taught photographer. 

 Mrs. Pancakes asked:

Where do you see your photography in five years?

I love photographing people and the emotions that may experience in that moment, telling their story through my photography. I hope that in five years I will be capturing precious moments for many people around the world. Thus combining two of my many passions: traveling and photographing.
