Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Ruth: I live on a small island located within the UK, I call this my paradise Island, for an island so small there’s 30 beaches to choose from.  As I love being in or around any form of water I am lucky to live here!

Cooling It off again…and forever wearing sunnies ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ – ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So this week is going to be pretty mental, got so many things going on. Tune in on Tuesday night to see the first clue as to what I am up to (some of you already know 😉) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How did you get into photography?

Ruth: I have always been a creative kind of person – I’d have to say I first developed an interest in photography when I received the Gopro Hero 2 Camera, I also studied photography – this helped me broaden my knowledge of the field and understand what makes a photo appealing.

What’s your favorite camera to shoot with?

Ruth: That’s a tricky question! I tend to always carry two camera’s on me wherever I go – My GoPro and Sony A6500. If its a big adventure then I will also bring along my DJI Mavic Drone – Gotta get all those angles!

What is your life motto?

Ruth: Why Not?

Where is your favorite place you’ve been and why?

Ruth: Dubai – I recently visited here and it blew me away, the amount they have achieved in so little time is mind blowing. There’s so much happening all the time. Its constantly changing.

Mad Max In Real Life!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ – ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This was like being in the movie, the whole experience felt like I was being carted off to battle against the enemy across a empty desert! But In actual fact I was just going for breakfast… With @ballooning_uae and @platinumheritage this is how your morning continues after the magnificent hot air balloon flight!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What’s the next place or item on your bucket list?

Ruth: Hawaii has been on my bucket list for a while now!

What advice would you give to people new to traveling?

Ruth: What happens, happens – just go with the flow!

What is your favorite SPY product and why?

Ruth: SPY Discord Sunglasses – Just love the look and feel!

With so many brands out there, what makes you connect with SPY over another sunglasses brand

Ruth: The main difference between SPY and other sunglasses on the market is the built quality and technology that is built into the  sunglasses. The Happy Lens technology is hand down one of the main reasons why I stick with SPY – Nothing else on the market can offer this level of eye protection in my opinion.
