Well, I have actually started a Youtube Channel people.
I have been meaning to do this for a long time, but the truth is, I have either been busy or just plain lazy to do it. Now that I have a creative slot free seeing that I am technically just waiting to graduate from University, I decided to go for it.
I would like to create photography related content that is aimed at mums who happen to be photographers aka ‘Mumtographer’. I have searched on Youtube and I haven’t come across such a channel. Unless I wasn’t looking hard enough.
According to the Urban Dictionary, the meaning of ‘Mumtographer’ is
Usually a stay-at-home mom who buys a camera from Amazon, teaches herself the basics of Photoshop and starts her own “photography company”. (side note, changed Best Buy to Amazon)
Well, I am a stay-at-home mum, I have several cameras and I am self-taught with an added bonus of doing a degree in photography. So, I would say I qualify, no?
Anyway, the whole reason for creating my channel is that I just want to share my experiences on how I go about being a mum of two and still find time to be creative as a photographer. Hopefully, what I put out there will help other mums too.
I won’t lie to you and say it is going to be easy. I created the channel in September 2016 and it has taken me at least 6 months to upload my first video. Hurdle number one done!
Now to conquer the next hurdle called CONSISTENCY. Wish me luck!

Well, to be honest, this is my third channel. The first one I started I cannot get access to as it was created well before YouTube & Google merged. My second channel was created, well, to kind of make up the fact I could not get access to the first one, but the content was just random videos I shot and decided to share with the world.
Now, I want to do this seriously (pause) 😁.
