The Wild Collective was born from a need to express all facets of life that I found, shockingly, photography just wasn’t able to do sometimes. I’m a photographer through and through, yes, but first and foremost, I’m a writer. I’ve been writing since I was ten years old and it’s more ingrained into who I am than any other passion I’ve ever pursued. And yes, I do write often (& well!), but no, I don’t write for money. Yet. *wink*
Back in 2016, TWC began as a way to take snapshots of my life as it happened in real time. It was a safe, open space where I felt comfortable being candid, visible and naked with the big, big emotions I live with. Over time the content dwindled because of one reason or another – sometimes even life itself gets too heavy to write about – but the drive to maintain it never waned.
And while I have merged The Wild Collective blog/website into and under Wild Light’s expanding umbrella, the movement at its core remains the same.
Real life can be really difficult, but also absolutely wonderful, and we all need a space to share that. This was, and will continue to be, mine.
