We are excited to share some news— Sarah is joining our team here at Cultural Chromatics. A self-taught videographer and photographer, we’ve been collaborating and are lucky to make this partnership *official*.
We first met Sarah 3 years ago, at a styling event in San Francisco. Time really flies! We quickly bonded over blogging, since both of us didn’t know that many other people who were as fully immersed in the blog world as us. It only made sense that we would get closer as our creative interests intersected and we began to explore different media outlets together. It’s also great to be able to attend events together and share travel experiences!
We’ve asked her a few questions to help you get to know her better:
Tell us about yourself:
I am a creative Libra with an adventurous spirit. I enjoy exercising all parts of my brain with a day job that requires a lot of critical thinking and tending to my passion projects in the evenings. My dad had a habit of taking lots of photos when I was young and it only seemed natural for me to pick it up as I grew older. He bought me my first DSLR in high school, I had no idea what I was doing with it, but I quickly learned to capture my favorite moments. The most important thing about being creative to me is being able to tell a story. It doesn’t have to be the greatest lesson ever learned, but I want my audience to walk away feeling like they understood a part of me and how I feel.
What is your go-to gear for photography and videos?
I received the Sony a5100 with 16-50mm as a Christmas gift and it’s been my favorite camera to carry when I travel. The image quality is great and it offers some key features my trusty Canon SL1 doesn’t, a flip screen and wi-fi connectivity. The two cameras have their pros and cons but I love them equally!
What are some things we can look forward to on Cultural Chromatics with you on board?
I am excited to create more videos to share some of Nanette’s amazing recipes and hopefully branch out to other how-to videos on lifestyle content. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to stay in the loop
What do you like to do on your days off?
I love to travel, it’s hard to find time with a busy schedule so I like to plan ahead. It’s important for me to make time for myself and enjoy experiencing other cultures and their cuisine. I’m looking forward to a solo trip this year to get out of my comfort zone and really excited about making new memories.
We can’t wait to grow Cultural Chromatics together and build it to something even bigger and better than it has been.
Thank you for your support!
-My Linh, Nanette, and Sarah
