‘Ok, But First Coffee’ is, for me, a lifestyle. It means nothing is impossible, it’s just up to us to make things happen. It also means that regardless of your schedule or busyness you can always find time for a chat over coffee with a friend. Relationships with others are what make our lives interesting. In other words: take it easy, do your thing and find time for others.
I love photography and my iPhone is the only camera I have. I’m lucky to live in London: a vibrant and multicultural city which inspires me every day and has had an enormous influence on my photography. But I can’t imagine my life here without being well-caffeinated—and there are a lot of coffee shops here with a great selection of coffee.
So what is this blog about?
- London. I moved to London in April 2014 and still find myself in tourist mode. I love exploring this city and take a lot of photos on my iPhone. After some time, I came up with the idea of free ‘London Photography Superstar’ email course and ‘London Photo Guide’. Please check them out. I’m sure both the course and the guide will help you take better and more interesting photos of this beautiful city.
- Coffee. I’m 100% addicted to coffee and I have tried to give it up three times! It’s my morning or midday ritual—to have a cup of hot coffee in order to carry on with a busy day. Coffee shops are – with the exception of supermarkets – the shops I frequent most often in London. I also like to takes photos of their varied interiors or of the coffee itself. It’s two birds with one stone, I suppose.
- Mobile Photography and Instagram. Or iPhoneography, because I use my iPhone 6S at the moment. I’ve been taking photos for as long as I can remember, but I never liked to be in them. My favourite genre is city (or street) photography, and that’s what I think I do best. Photography is one of my passions and I’m happy to share the tips and tricks I use all the time. You can expect to see posts about editing mobile photos, composition ideas and Instagram tips. Check out my free ‘Build and Authentic Instagram Account‘ e-course.
And now I would love to know about you! Say hello in the comments, introduce yourself and tell me about your favourite coffee.
