Adobe recently partnered with Passion Passport on Passport to Creativity to give six students from around the world the chance to travel to one of three of the world’s most protected natural environments. Thousands of students from across the globe applied for this opportunity and Georgia Verrells, wedding photographer and student at RMIT University in Melbourne was one of the finalists. We caught up with her to learn more about her. Check out our conversation here:
Tell us a little bit more about yourself and your background?
My name is Georgia and I’m 22 years old. I was born in London and grew up in Melbourne, Australia. When I turned 18, I moved to London and started working at a financial firm, but I was stuck in a rut of doing the same thing everyday and became deeply unhappy. Three years later, I quit the office to travel around America and to pursue my passion in design and photography. I ended up working alongside Instagram to launch Instagram direct while I was there, which was an incredible experience! I am currently in my last year of University at RMIT and loving it!
How would you describe your work?
My photo style is candid and dream-like, trying to tell a unique story and invite my viewer into what I see. I’m an adventure seeker and professional storyteller. I’ve worked with a variety of big names such as Levis, VSCO, instagram and Happy Socks.
What Adobe tools do you use?
I use the Creative Cloud the most for university. The most used program would be Lightroom for editing my photos and then Illustrator CC for my design work. I also love Indesign CC for my publication work.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I photograph because it’s my outlet, it engages me and lets me show the world how I see people or places. I want to share that with the world. I love getting creative and I’m usually most inspired out in nature while on a day trip out of the city. I work better out of home which is why you’ll often find me in different cities or saving up to go overseas again and again. It’s a cycle that I can’t seem to get enough of!
