Behind the Lens

Hey There,

Thanks for stopping by! I’m Shannon… a teacher at heart, photographer by passion, blogger by interest and a girl who wants to see the world.P1300487

After graduating from University and having no teaching opportunities at home in Canada I decided to go to England to teach and gain some experience. I was able to travel to a few other countries while I was there and the travel bug bit me hard! I came home and went back to retail management to save and be able to travel more.

I was finally (somewhat) ready to take the scary plunge and cut my salary in half to follow my passion and work with children. I left retail and went to a childcare centre to work in a before and after school setting. That helped me gain so much more experience and knowledge and prepared me to make another leap, a large leap ‘over the pond’ again.

I met my amazing boyfriend in 2012 and thankfully have the shared interest in seeing the world together. We have moved to the U.K and are ready to see where the next couple years will take us.

This blog is a way for me to share my passion for photography and my stories of travel for friends, family and anyone else who is interested to come along!
