So. The first blog post. What should it be about? As adviced by shoutmeloud.com, I’ll introduce myself and the thoughts behind the website.
Who am I?
I’m Stefan. I’m 38 years old, living a normal but nice life with my wife and two kids in Copenhagen, Denmark.
I started taking photos and working with videography in the mid 1990’s, and have worked with it as a hobby since then. I even attended film school for half a year after high school, and I have a series of clients I make event photography and videography for.
I was introduced to web design- and development in the beginning of the new millennium while studying to become an engineer. This led to another big passion: Graphic design. I’ve been working with digital design and communication since then, and have a masters degree in Design and Communication from the IT-University in Copenhagen.
I work with digital design, social media, videography and photography as a lecturer at KEA (Copenhagen School of Design and Technology), and I freelance projects within photography, videography and web design.
My primary interest within visual communication is the relation between copy, graphics, photography and videography, especially visual stories about people, places and events. Preferably positive stories, with a raw, retro and unpolished look.
Why this website?
I work with digital content creation as a lecturer at KEA and as a freelancer. I haven’t had the time to run my own site, though. So, the main purpose is to practice what I preach. Secondly, I love web design, digital content, photography and videography. So why not combine it all into a new hobby: To run this website?
What am I going to write about?
I love exploring places and events, so documenting my whereabouts is going to be a major part of my journal. I haven’t really narrowed my work down to a specific genre, but I guess it is a mixture of urban, street, travel, portrait- and landscape photography.
Secondly, I am going to write about my efforts when working with web design and content creation. I’m going to share a bit of work, discuss gear and gadgets, give a couple of tips and tricks on photography, videography and content creation for web- and SoMe.
Who am I writing for?
My target audience is other people interested in web design and digital content. My secondary target group is my family and my students. I can probably find a way of forcing them to visit my site;-)
I wouldn’t be doing all this work without a goal, but I haven’t set any KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) yet. First and foremost, I just want to get my website and Social Media up and running. I’ll evaluate the results after a year – summer 2020.
What would be nice in the meantime, would be to get a couple of “shares, likes and subscribers.”
Are You gonna help me with that?
