7 random things…

A dear photographer friend of mine Kati “tagged” me to share 7 random things. I’ve shared some random stuff on here before (in addition to the stuff under “Details“), but I always have a good chuckle when I think of other random stuff! So, without further ado……

 1 My favourite TV programmes are Friends, Sex and the City and Ugly Betty – and I have a small obsession with wanting to visit New York going on!!!

2. I have had the most random selection of jobs, ever! Aside from a 12 year corporate career and the usual bar, waitressing and shop girl jobs I’ve worked as a ski instructor (I qualified aged 16 and until I started photography that was my favourite job to date). I’ve sold double glazing – over the phone – hmmm… don’t hate me! I’ve led tours on dolphin watching boats. I’ve worked on a landfill. I’ve been a childrens party entertainer (yes, that does mean clown). I’ve been a beer girl at the rugby 7’s in Hong Kong! And I’ve been a bra model (probably my best ever paid job – and for companies including Victoria’s Secret, no less!)

 3. I was once on a Hong Kong TV programme as part of the orchestra (playing the violin) supporting a cantopop star performance (I don’t even remember who!) – the music was pre recorded and when they filmed we just had to mime – most bizarre!

 4. it stuns me every day just how much I love hanging out with my children – I want to hang onto every single moment and bottle it up (which reminds me, we really should invest in a video camera – recommendations please!!)

 5. I ♥ travel programmes and am ALWAYS planning the next trip, or 2 or 3 in my head and being inspired by what an amazing place the planet we live on is.

 6. I beat myself up about the fact I drive a 4 wheel drive car and yet I consider myself passionate environmentalist – I accept it as a fact of life here that keeping my kids safe comes first – that said, I’m a crazy recycler, waste minimiser, local buyer, switch turneroffer, and with a long background as an environmental consultant I try as hard as I can to incorporate little environmental initiatives into my work wherever I can.

 7. I’m the luckiest girl in the world to have met a wonderful man, who is my soul mate, my No. 1 supporter and the most amazing father to my children I could imagine – he has given me the best of times, and held my hand through the worst

 So now I’m passing this along to some more bloggers – and I’m going to spread the love globally here!!!

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
