I loved how Sam and Ryan covered so much, were willing to go over time, answered questions and I learned something in the first 5 minutes (having ‘travel’ next to your name in your bio) - which was amazing and not what I had expected (as I’ve done so much reading up on instagram growth recently).

Before the Travel Blogging Bootcamp I had figured out that I wanted to start a travel blog / website but that was about it. I had an Instagram handle secured but hadn’t ever posted or followed anyone, it was a blank account. Now I have the account up and running, I’ve learned how to use Lightroom to edit my photos and make them look consistent, I’ve learned how to properly caption, hashtag and create a brand for my page. I feel like I actually have a foundation to work off of now whereas before I was completely lost.

Although people have complimented my photography, I have gaps in my knowledge that makes me feel like my work is inadequate. The Travel Blogging Bootcamp helped me fill the gaps I have & the photo examples put me right in an environment that excites and inspires me. I can’t wait to venture further into this journey with Sam and Ryan!
