Have you ever stared at your Instagram or even Pinterest feed and all you see is these amazing travel photos. The first thing that you think of ugh, how can they;
a.) Take a ton of amazing photos where you can tell the story of that moment. I mean how can they do that in ONE picture?!? I can barely take a photo without it being wonky and blurry!
b.) How can they afford and get the opportunity to get to go to there when I barely do that myself without adding to my ever-growing travel bucket list!
Well, Girl, I get it.
Because that used to be me too. More than anything in this world that we, me and you, want to explore the world and get to share our adventures through the art of photography, as well as video and the written word. And I’ll show you how you can do it too!
If we haven’t met before, I’m Laura and I’m Food and Beverage Shift Leader turned Travel Photographer, as well as the creator of Floss’ Adventures.
I’m a lover of all things travel, photography, sports, digital media, personal growth and history. Although, you can also find me chilling out with some pink gine and a good Netflix binge too!
I have always been obsessed with Travel and Photography, for as long as I can . remember. There is something about the magic of going somewhere that you have never been to before and having the ability to capture it. The beauty, the story of that moment. I also love hearing about travel adventures of others, seeing their memories through their eyes as told by their photographs.
Over the years, I was lucky enough to go on trips with my family, friends and school to some amazing places which I still love to this day and long to go back to.
As well as, the growth of the internet and digital media, my obsession of beautiful photography and amazing places I wanted to visit grew thanks to the many wonderful travel blogs out there. My photography skills also grew, getting better and better as I went along.
It wasn’t until 2019, after years of dreaming about quitting my unsatisfying job and career to create one that I love and travel the world while doing it, I finally took action and Floss’ Adventures, as you see it today, was born.
My Mission & Beliefs
Here, ar Floss’ Adventures, it’s my mission to teach travel-loving photographers how to capture truly beautiful moments of their adventures which tells their stories with confidence in their photography skills.
A big part of how I achieve my mission is by aligning my beliefs in that I truly believe is what makes Floss’ Adventures the best travel photography platforms on the internet.
Belief One: Passion
It’s what keeps life interesting, fun, inspiring, motivating allow us to grow and dream. It’s not just another hobby or interest to you, or just because it seems the cool thing to do. To you, It isn’t, you live and breath Travel and Photography. It lights you up in ways that anyone or anything else can or ever will.
Belief Two: Creativity
You don’t have to draw, write or even paint to be a creative person. You are an Artist, a Storyteller, instead of using pencils, paint and pens to create the story you want, you use your camera. Wherever it is a DSLR or a Smartphone Camera, you still have your own unique style, which only you have and you can do. So embrace your creativity, your stories, embrace your style.
Belief Three: Confidence
You are an amazing photographer. You may not think you are or you compare yourself to other amazing travel photographers who are further along the road than you are. You worry about what others think of photography skills and style.
Over time, the more you practise, the more you share, the more you believe in yourself and your ability to be an even more amazing photographer, the more confident you will become.
With this confidence, the less you will worry about what the doubters, the haters and the nay-sayers have to say about your skills and style because you believe in yourself and you know it to be true.
Belief Four: Community
We’re all in this together. We all have to start somewhere in these adventures of becoming these amazing travel photographers. I’ll be there for you in any way that I can. Wherever you are in need of some advice, encouragement, inspiration or motivation. We’ll have your back, no matter where you are on your journey.
