Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a content creator for Lands' End? Have you ever wanted to know more about who the content creators are and what their lives are like outside of their jobs? Then keep reading. I had the chance to ask Ellen Homestead some questions about her life. She is one of the influencers we worked with on our Fall Holiday Campaign. She is a photographer who shares her life through breathtaking images of her travels. In this article we will get to learn more about Ellen's personal life, her life as a content creator, and her travels.
I grew up in a small town in the middle of Norway.
I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember, but I only started to take photography seriously a few years ago. During the lockdowns I started hiking more frequently in my backyard, and the camera always came with me. That's when it truly became a passion of mine.
Good question! As for the female pieces I loved the thermoplume QLT jacket, I have always been a huge fan of the forest moss color! But I must admit that I also stole my boyfriend's fleece snapneck after we finished the shoot.
Heading outdoors! That is where I feel the most creative and inspired, and there is no shortage of beautiful views and scenery to photograph. This also goes for when the weather is poor because that's often when you get the coolest images.
I am pretty sure I left a big chunk of my heart in New Zealand. I was lucky to experience quite a lot of that country while I lived there a few years ago. There is truly no other place where the scenery is so diverse and vibrant. And the down-to-earth people there are also a huge bonus.
Lofoten and northern Norway provide some absolutely stunning hikes. There is nothing like hiking up a mountain during the midnight sun. The colors are so vibrant, and the landscape so dramatic and lush.
Hearing about some of the amazing, beautiful hikes Ellen Homestead has been on is truly inspiring. Appreciating the beauty of nature, even on a rainy day, is so important. Don't forget to pack your Lands' End raincoat! A special thank you to Ellen Homestead for taking the time to share a little more about her life and her craft. She gave some great tips for anyone who wants to become a content creator and it shows that with enough work, a hobby can turn into a dream career. I hope you enjoyed getting to know the first content creator in this new series, stay tuned for the rest of our influencer series.
