YouTube: A Brief Update

For this week’s post, I thought I give you a brief update on my YouTube channel and how it is going.

Since my last few posts herehere and here together with a rocky start, I have somehow managed to keep to a schedule of posting every two weeks at 8am GMT without fail.

At the moment, I am focusing on being consistent and holding myself accountable whilst learning how to edit videos. Eventually, I would like to see it grow into a space where I can showcase my creativity as a photographer and also feature a few of my friends and other creatives that I happen to come across.

From time to time, my children will also be featured as I am a mum and they are part of me. The channel is essentially about photography and my lifestyle as a photographer and a mum. Hence using the ‘mumtographer’ or ‘mumtog’ moniker.

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, welcome.

For those who follow this blog and new followers alike, head over to my channel and subscribe. You are not obliged to and I appreciate you just the same for sticking out with me here on my blog.

Here is the last video I uploaded – My First MA Class Presentation (And I Wasn’t Even There)

 

For those of you who may not know, I am currently in the second year of my MA in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism. This was my first presentation at the beginning of the term to the new students who joined the course. Life happened and I wasn’t able to be there in person, but technology and friends saved the day.

Happy viewing!

I Woke Up Like This Selfie (2019)

I am one of those photographers that does not like being in front of the camera but having said that I might as well get used to it seeing as I already have a YouTube channel.

Yes, you read that right, I do have a channel, but I haven’t uploaded a video for 9 months.

The more I watch myself, the more I see that I need to work on my presentation skills. I have never been so uncomfortable in front of the camera and continuing on this journey of putting myself out there will be a weird one.

Also, let me just go ahead and say that the reason I haven’t uploaded in months is that I was derailed by various events in the past few months, both good and bad. This made me lose my mojo to vlog, but I am slowly getting it back to it. I have this urge within me to share my journey as a mum and photographer and sometimes, a video works best.

I have a plan like I do with this blog, to hold myself accountable and post at least one video a week, but for now, I think I will start with one video every two weeks. I am yet to decide when to post. Perhaps every Friday like the blog post or Saturday, what do you think?

Photo Story will continue and my hope with this is to involve a few people as guests on my vlog. If this is something you would be willing to collaborate on, please leave a comment on this post. I would love to hear from you.

So, from September seeing as it’s a new year for school and all, I will be back on my channel with a new video.

Wish me luck as I conquer my fears one self-image and video at a time.
