Creativity in the world of Travel Photography
Paperboyo (real name Rich McCor) is a photographer who has been described as "a non-destructive vandal". With a camera & carefully crafted paper cut-outs he's carved out a new niche in the world of street art by transforming cityscapes into something unexpected using forced perspective illusions.

Starting in London as a hobby, it quickly got out of hand and became a full time career just a year later when his work went viral.

By observing his surroundings in a different way & letting himself play with "even the most silly ideas", Rich now travels full time creating content for his online audience of over half a million while also being hired by brands including Dyson, Red Bull and F1 to bring his unique perspective to their campaigns.

Tamara Gabriel

Mastering the basics of vlogging, from camera settings, to filming, to the final edit
Tamara first got into filmmaking back in 2016 when she ignited her passion for photography. After discovering the video settings on her first DSLR, she soon fell in love with shooting video, and it didn't take long before video took over photography. With a keen interest in documentaries, Tamara took to shooting mini-documentaries, whilst learning everything she needed to make great videos.

When she decided to document her journey on YouTube by showing behind-the-scenes videos whilst filming her mini-docs, she naturally found herself talking about the gear that she’d used and why she chose certain pieces of gear over others, and this then lead on to Tamara focusing more on camera gear reviews over time, which is mainly what her YouTube channel is about today, alongside filmmaking tutorials and tips.

With vlogging being one of many creative approaches to creating videos, Tamara began to adopt a vlog-style-approach to her reviews, and so she takes every opportunity to get outdoors and film her videos on-location using a combination of drones and various cameras that each play their role in capturing different types of footage from various different angles for a more enjoyable viewing experience.
