My name is Sebastien, I am 21 years old and I have a huge passion for photography and cinematography. Most of all, I enjoy travelling. Luckily for me those things go hand in hand together, which is absolutely fantastic!
Media first became an intriguing concept to me because it is inventive and creative. In 2012, I captained a competitive gaming team that ranked 3rd in all of Europe. I also captured and edited footage that I uploaded to my YouTube channel, acquiring two sponsors in the process. This experience taught me the immense power that (a) media (platform) can have and encouraged me to pursue my education in a media-related course. In the process I have gained invaluable skills, encountered a vast amount of people with different skill sets and learnt how to work in close-knit teams, as well as individually.
By pursuing my interests in media, I have grown as a creator. I have built a second YouTube channel amounting to over 60 000 views.
I have recently started exploring another form of social media; Instagram. I have an account that I use to document my travels by taking photos and creating short films. I have visited Bali, Kuala Lumpur and Greece, and generated over 7000 followers thus far.
I have a gap year coming up and I intend to travel both alone and with a companion around Vietnam, Thailand and China. I will be bringing my camera equipment along with me to make sure I can capture picturesque and awe-inspiring photography. I will additionally be recording so can turn short cinematic travel videos that I will upload to my new YouTube and Facebook page.
I am a qualified Advanced Open Water Diver. This qualification, along with my investment in a GoPro, has allowed me to broaden the types of photos and films I will be able to create.
