Have you ever felt with limited in your creative field because of where you live? Finn Beales has done what most in his region only dream of: escaping that limitation and embracing the world around him to create his own path as a professional photographer.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Finn went through what he thinks makes the diffrent between you and everyone else when it comes to representing yourself and your brand online. Using various platforms including social media and agency connections, he was able to build his portfolio and work with brands like Adidas, Johnnie Walker, St. Lucia Tourist Board and Red Bull. His story is incredible and inspiring in many ways. Primarily, at least in my opinion, breaking into the industry on Instagram where he says consistency and posting only what you believe is your best work will help you grow.
I live on the side of a mountain in rural Wales where we cut our own wood for heating and the nearest town has a population of 1,500 people. Technology and the Internet has allowed me to work alongside some internationally talented artists/photographers, from a relatively remote corner of the world. I actually think my location helps, it's a point of difference, but developing a career as a photographer out here would have been near impossible before the Internet. I'm very grateful for it.
Below are some of Finn's photos from travels around the world for various brands.
