Hello! My name is Sóla Prosser and thank you for stopping by.
When I was 24 years old I decided to pack my bags and leave good old ‘Blighty’ (a common sentimental reference Brits call the UK) in search for a ‘fantabulous’ adventure in the Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago to be exact….and I found it!
I left the moody grey clouds behind for the awesome lively and energetic islands. My heritage is from Trinidad and Tobago you see (my grandparents were born there). For the following seven years I worked as a journalist for a community station in Tobago then for a state media house in Trinidad.
To cut a long story short I returned to the UK to attend the London School of Journalism and I missed my family terribly. I thought it was going to be super easy continuing my career in journalism. For the next three years I struggled like crazy to get my foot in the door. So instead I took on various temporary administrative positions just to fill my days. I wanted more….I was in a rut, a dead-end job that was stifling my creativity. So, I quit my job for a new start.
In some ways photography has always been my hobby, a part of my life. I always treasure places I visit, people I meet and the creativity I can put into taking each photo….what ever is pleasing to the eye really!
I began to get serious about photography a year ago when my husband bought me my first professional camera….I cried with joy as from that moment I knew it would change my life forever.
Photography is my passion and I hope to inspire others by sharing my latest photos and highlighting interesting details so far. I would be super chuffed if you would like to follow me on my journey and would be grateful for any feedback/comments you may like to offer.
I’m a lover of good food, dogs (even though I don’t have one yet), orangutans and travelling the world. I can also write backwards (I know, super random!).
Many thanks for stopping by and don’t be a stranger.
