I am a Communication Design student based in south east England. I am 18 years old, and in love with my cat and my family (cat being more important, of course). When I downloaded Instagram accidentally four years ago, thinking it was to edit photos, I had no idea it would spark my passion for photography, or introduce me to some of the most incredible people I have ever met. I have been influenced both creatively and in my outlook on life by images I’ve come across on Instagram, and by the people behind the account handles. Whether I’m checking out @alice_gao’s breakfast flatlays in my lunch break, yearning for one of @jaredchamber’s road trips or being overcome with New York wanderlust via @visualmemories_, the ‘gram has inspired me day to day to travel and eat and shoot, and do what I do, and my life wouldn’t be the same without it.” Follow Hal for stunning and surreal photos of urban and natural landscapes.
