Dear Photographer | The Colour Edition

I was recently published in the beautiful Dear Photographer Magazine. One of the most amazing feelings when you are creating something visual is seeing your work displayed or in print. When it’s a print publication that leads and uplifts the industry and they actually approach you because they think your work would be perfect for their next edition it’s even more amazing and the most incredible honour.

Not only did they ask me for an article but Dear Photographer Magazine told me I could write it on anything I wanted on my approach to cohesively creating with colour. I had so much to say and could have taken many different directions but I am so happy with their feedback on my article “Technicolour Travels” which featured in their Jan / Feb edition. I described how I look for colour contrast, colour pairs, tone, and mood and how I utilise that to truthfully tell the stories of our travels. The article was illustrated with photos from Tibet, India and Iran – 3 amazingly colourful countries that I love (one of which I still live in!!).

The whole magazine is an absolute feast and there is the most beautiful range of contributors telling their own stories about how they utilise colour, or featured in the pages – it’s an honour to be amongst them.

And here’s a little video of Indy and me flicking through the beautiful magazine (click to play).

I’m so grateful for such a beautiful opportunity to share my approach and some of our travels. If you’re interested you can order a copy over here. Or just browse the Dear Photographer blog for more inspirational photography over here,

Big thanks to Janel, Adri and the team at Dear Photographer

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
