Trying to Be Creative is a fortnightly newsletter about photography, videos, creativity, and everything in between that I find fascinating.

    I send out the newsletters twice a month. Ideally on the 15th and 30th, but more realistically, any day on the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month.

    I’ll share photography tips, random stories, creative thoughts, frustrations about the creative journey, and everything in between. Generally, anything I find interesting and think you might enjoy, find useful, or get inspired by.

  4. It’s free. And 100% spam-free. Unsubscribe whenever you want.

Who am I?

I’m not Jean Valjean. (Bonus points to you if you sang the heading😁)

I’m ash. I’m a person trying to be creative. I’ve always struggled with being creative and wondering if the things I attempt are good enough. So these days, I just try.

At this point in my life, I’m pretty obsessed with most things photo and video. I started this newsletter to share the things I find interesting and as a means to get my thoughts out of my head and onto ‘paper’. I’m not a writer, but I’ll try to convey my thoughts and ideas as best as possible. Who knows? Maybe this helps or inspires someone out there in some way.

Thank you for hanging out with me. Now, let’s try and create things.
