Tag "rome in a weekend"

I was lucky enough to be given some excellent copywriting opportunities this year with the Telegraph.

First of all, I interviewed Insta-famous photographers from around the world to get their advice on getting a really brilliant photo of sunset. You know how when you’re on holiday, the sunsets are better? Here’s how to translate beautiful moments into Instagram gold.

There were loads of great pointers from the pros – for example, it turns out the ‘cloudy’ phone camera setting usually yields better results than auto. Who knew? Photographers also recommended you shoot from a high point, get started early, and to look for nice ways to frame a shot. All their tips and more in the feature.

Then The Telegraph introduced me to a clued-up Roman hotel manager who gave me half a dozen insider tips about making the most of Rome in a weekend. He told me when to avoid the Vatican, the city’s best foodie tour and the best deli for gifts, which film to watch before travelling, and a delicious arancini-like snack that’s not actually arancini to look out for at the market.

Both of those features were sponsored content for American Express.

Interested in this work? I’ve also worked on:

  • Working with Guardian Labs on a VisitBritain mini-site, ‘UK Home of Amazing’
  • Highlighting some cool London events for a Time Out/Martini feature
