New Interview! Starring @thefreedomcomplex - Brought to you via nomadict.org / @nomadict : Jonas Hornehøj is a 25 years old lifestyle and travel photographer hailing from Denmark. Not that long ago he was a barman working in his home city, Copenhagen.
Eventually he completed an internship as an F&B Manager Assistant in Thailand and the travel bug got him good. He realized there was not anything holding him back, so he decided to travel the world and create visual content for a living. He said, “When I set off, I honestly didn’t expect to keep going as long as I have. Of course, I hoped I would. But it seemed unlikely, I had just seen so many Instagram accounts doing it so I thought: “If they can, so can I.” I spent every day going to new places, focusing on my photography skills, as well as editing skills and of course networking!” And the hard work paid off!
Today Jonas is a full time content creator and his first trip to Bali had a significant role in this regard. As he pointed out: “Bali has been the place where I found and felt most inspired. Heading to Bali is what led me to start making money from doing what I love, and make me realize that you can make money doing anything, as long as you work hard, beat on your craft, and keep pushing through!” Along the journey he has been able to come up with his own editing style. For Jonas, it is all about telling stories.
He said, “I think the thing that has helped me in trying to stand out in this massive crowd of travel photographers, is that from the very beginning my aim was always to keep telling stories, sharing emotions, and making sure that I was real with the people who followed me in including them in all travels.” The list of tips that Jonas shared with us goes on and on!
Jonas shared with us a lot of tips and tricks. Especially for those of you pursuing a career as a visual creator!
