Do not be afraid to think outside the box. You can find inspiration from anything. Do not limit your creativity!
Nathan (BYLINED): Hi Ashley! Thank you so much for helping us make the app better. At BYLINED, we make our app based on your experiences, so your feedback is extremely helpful! To start off our Q&A, what is your favorite part of using the app?
Ashley: I like that it is very easy to navigate and the assignments are very easy to follow.
Ashley: Thank you for checking out my IG! This really means a lot. The day before I received the email about Vans purchasing my photo, I was on verge of quitting photography because I didn’t feel like my work was getting anywhere. And then when I woke up the next morning and I saw an email from your company and was in total shock! I knew this was a sign from God to keep going. I got into photography in high school in 2004, and I just took it as an elective to fill up credits but found out that I really enjoyed the whole process of creating, developing and presenting my images.
Nathan (BYLINED): And you probably enjoyed getting paid for your work, too! After this big success with having your photo bought on BYLINED, do you have any advice for new Byliners?
Ashley: My advice to new Byliners is to not be afraid to think outside the box. You can find inspiration from anything. Do not limit your creativity.
Nathan (BYLINED): That’s so true. We just need to slow down to appreciate the inspiration that is always around us. What do you do in your free time?
Ashley: In my free time, I watch YouTube tutorials on how to create certain looks or effects I want in my images, search hashtags on Instagram for different ideas, and listen to music that always makes me happy!
Nathan (BYLINED): At the BYLINED office, we’re always jamming to music, too! Do you have any other questions or suggestions?
Ashley: None so far. Thank you again for making such an awesome app!
Nathan (BYLINED): Thank you!
