14 years ago I started my blogging adventure. It started with Vintage Rose Brocante, on TUMBLR. Sharing what I saw that I found beautiful and inspiring. Eventually my interests changed and I decided to blog with the title A Creative Mess.
Over the years my interests have changed and photography has become my passion. I’m always chasing light and wanting to up my game and take beautiful inspiring photos. Here on Visual Stories, on my Instagram, Pinterest, Pexels and Unsplash —I share it all.
Unsplash is where you can download images, for free, to use for almost anything you want and attribution isn’t required. Unsplash photos can be seen everywhere. On billboards, in magazines, hanging in hotel rooms, in presentations, website demos, and on social media. Unsplash photos are everywhere. Many apps connect directly with the Unsplash library and many institutions and brands are using Unsplash.
The Unsplash library is integrated in many apps. For example if I’m creating an Instagram Story using Adobe Spark and I need a photo of soap, or a photo of tableware I can go to the library in the app and directly search for the product I need. If I’m creating my newsletter in MailChimp I can search the Unsplash library within MailChimp for the perfect image! The ways in which the Unsplash library can be used is seemingly endless.
I’m an active member of the Unsplash community. I upload my own photos, download from other photographers, and create collections for my profile. I’ve been part of the Photo Club for more than a year, and as of February 2021 I’ve become a leader of one of the Photo Club groups (there are currently 5 groups). Every month I pick a theme, and lead a team of community members in executing the theme we’re working on.
If we collaborate your photos will be seen by millions, and could be used in web design themes, design templates, social media posts, newsletters, articles and much more. Unsplash libraries are also available on many education platforms, meaning students can use the photos freely for their projects.
Recently I’ve started promoting my work on Pexels and am currently ranked at #46 on their website. Pexels is another incredibly popular stock photography website that also provides video as well as photography. The Pexels library can be accessed directily in popular social media apps like Canva !
Because I can upload video to Pexels and in my Instagram Reels / Stories I almost always include a video when doing a photoshoot. This allows me to highlight my subjects more authentically.
If you are interested in collaborating let me know. I don’t ask for anything more than what I need to do a project. We can talk details through email, and or schedule a video call.
