Conceived in the summer of 2012 through a combination of boredom and a desire to better myself, this blog chronicles the adventures of me – Steph Thompson – in the form of words and pictures.
This is what I look like, just in case you were wondering. I’m sure you’ll notice how different I look here in comparison to my Gravatar. That, my friends, is the beauty of a £400 photoshoot with the added benefit of airbrushing.
I am a 21-year-old copywriter living in Old Trafford, Manchester. I have a degree in journalism from the University of Salford and a keen interest in all things street art and all things photography.
This blog – as mentioned above – was the result of me needing something to do. I was in my first year of study away from home, lived with some truly abysmal individuals and needed to get out of my room before I developed a severe case of cabin fever.
With my trusty red Nikon D3100 I would wander the streets of Salford in search of some inspiration. Lucky for me there was plenty of it, and so Existing Through Pixels was born. Blogging has helped me though many a tough time in my life – from severe anxiety and depression to a year-long struggle with various illnesses.
There is no particular overall theme to this blog, I simply express my interests and hope to entertain others with my photography, and musings about life and the things that make me happy.
All that’s left for me to say is that I hope you enjoy my blog. I frequent a variety of other social media platforms, namely Twitter and, ofcourse, ye olde old book of face. So if you fancy it, you can find me @stephishere, or you can become a fan of my Facebook page via the widget on my homepage. I welcome all comments, so feel free to reach out to me if you see something you like – or don’t like, for that matter.
