This week’s ambassador spotlight shines a light on Anna Bowkis of Anna Bowkis Photography Read on to find out more about Kim, see some of her work, and find out which bluebird chic strap is her personal favorite!
Anna Bowkis is an English country-loving girl who has moved to the bright lights in Hong Kong with her husband and 2 girls. As a mother, she understands the importance of capturing children at all ages and in an environment that they are happy in. That’s why she chooses to photograph using natural light, against the beautiful backdrops in Hong Kong.When Anna hasn’t got a camera in her hand you can find her curled up on the sofa with a good book or making a delicious mess in the kitchen trying to be the next Nigella Lawson!
How long have you been a photographer?
I have been a professional photographer for about 6 years. I started my business in 2012 in the UK. I then moved to Hong Kong and set up Anna Bowkis Photographer. I specialised in family and children’s portraiture.
I am now currently rebranding and am enjoying working with small business as a brand photographer here in the UK.
What is the best part of being a photographer?
I love being self employed. It allows me to be with my family when I need to be and spend more quality time with them.
Networking is an important part of being a business owner to me, and I love to meet new people and hear about their businesses. It can be lonely working for yourself so this is a really important part of my working week.
What impact do you want your business to have on others?
I want to help small businesses tell their brand through storytelling. I love to capture craftsmanship, detail shots of my clients product/services.
What type of camera do you own, and what role does it play in your life?
I shoot with a Nikon D810 and mainly prime lenses. I love the bokeh a glass prime lens achieves and is a signature of my children’s portraiture style.
What’s your favorite thing about your bluebird chic strap?
I love the comfort of my Bluebird Chic strap. The fabrics Leah chooses are soft and comfortable to wear. I generally wear plainer clothes and my Bluebird strap adds that splash of colour and pattern to any of my outfits. I especially love orange for summer, but I’m never that brave to wear it as a solid colour. This delicate orange blossom in my Perfect Petals strap adds a splash of orange without it being too overwhelming.
Anna’s ambassador pick, the all-new Perfect Petals, is coming to our shops soon!
Thanks for sharing with us today Anna and for supporting the bluebird chic brand!
