Shona of @marlos_marvels was our featured artist for the {Books} theme. The is something magical about books, and so I connected with Shona to learn more about her and her photography journey.

Tell us a bit about yourself?  And, are you a hobbyist or a pro?

I’m both, I do work professionally but it’s very quiet just now in the UK being on full lockdown so very much just a hobbby at the moment! 

Tell us a bit about your photography gear.  What is the lens do you not have but you   desire to have the most?

I use a canon 5d mkiv and my 50mm lens the most but I would really prefer a 35mm. Also on my list is a mirrorless camera (not sure which yet) and I would like to get an iPad for editing. 

Describe your style of work and how you found your style.

I’m not sure I have a style but I’m working on it! I would say I mostly take portraits with a touch of magic! I like colour and brightness I’m not great at doing moody. 

Are you a creative person, ….have you always been creative, ….what inspires your creativity?

Yes I would say I am, I have to be doing something creative. I’ve recently redecorated my house and designed and printed some art for the walls. I’m also working on another project just now but it’s a secret for now! 

Who is your favorite photographer, living or dead?

So many of the photographers I’m inspired by are on Instagram. I don’t really have a favourite! 

What is your favorite quote?

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn. -John Muir
