"It was such fun filming with Julie, we both have huge challenges in making our houses relevant and financially stable in the 21st century and it was great to be able to share ideas and tips, and to realise how much we have in common!" - Claire Birch

Last year, I started a Masters in Photography and my main aim is looking at coastal areas and the how these (often) dramatic areas can provide an element of calm. But, to make the project as best as it can be, I need your help.
What UK beaches, coastal walks or seaside towns make you feel relaxed? I’m trying to explore as many as possible so every answer will be so useful! Thank you x

FACT- When Henry VIII took over Hampton Court Palace from Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in 1529, the King named three parks that make up modern-day Bushy Park and a small area beside: Hare Warren, Middle Park and Bushy Park. A keen hunter, he established them as deer-hunting grounds.
This trip made me inspired to open our Instagram travel account. ⠀
Andalusia is one of my favourite spots to visit in Europe. It has it all…breathtaking coast, rich history, several UNESCO sites, warm weather all year round, food to die for…those are only few. I still remember telling Ollie that I need to do something with all the pictures I have taken during this trip…otherwise they will just wait on my external disk to never be seen again. ⠀
I heard a lot of similar stories and Instagram is definitely a perfect spot to treasure those memories. However Instagram was a different platform back then. At that stage IG stories were slowly used more and more…chronological order has just disappeared. I often hear that it is hard to grow for new accounts, but I believe Instagram is simply saturated platform right now…everyone creates similar content and audience is simply fed up seeing same things over and over again. ⠀
Before opening this account, being blogger/influencer/content creator (call it however you want) I always thought it is such an easy work…you snap nice picture, edit it, write a simple caption, put few hashtags…simple as that! BISH-BASH-BOSH. How wrong was I? Behind every picture, there is a lot of work that we don’t see.⠀
I see a lot of accounts complaining about IG currently…it is a hard as we all create amazing content and IG plays their own game and is constantly changing algorithm. I even do have a 'little moan' sometimes…but then I keep telling myself why I created this account in the first place. I love that we have been treasuring those memories even more…I improved my photography and editing skills. Plus I hope we inspired one or two of you.⠀
What was a primary reason you opened your IG account? If you have any questions around growing, cresting content, working with brands, etc. please write them here. I will get back to all of you ❤❤❤ #sevillespain#visitseville#spaintravel#spain_vacations#spainstagram#spainstagram#spainlove#spain_gallery#spain_greatshots#spaintrip#spain ❤️ #andalucia_photos#andalucia_turismo#andalusian#instagramtips#instagramhacks#instagramexpert#suitcasetribe
