Nuffnang Featured Blogger for the Month of April 2014
- Who are you and what is your blog about?
A style blog featuring menswear, fitness, travel, events, food, art, and everything in between. Bright lights, exciting cultures, and unique styles define my adventures. My camera is ready, waiting for the next shot. I am Ira Giorgetti, Manila’s resident vampire.
- What can we expect from your blog?
Expect to be captivated by a blend of engaging writing and eye-catching photography. My blog is a visual treat for all my readers, I only use handpicked, high-quality photos that meet my aesthetic standards when I write my posts. Everything from my outfit posts to my event photo diaries are well represented by professional-grade photography.
- When and how did you start blogging?
I started out with a Lookbook account in 2009, and I had a Tumblr account as well. I started actually writing posts in 2010, and by 2011 I had migrated to WordPress and started taking my website seriously. I bought my own domain at around the same time, and started working with brands and advertisers on their campaigns. Five years later, my blog is where it is now!
- What separates your blog from other blogs?
My blog is a look into my life, from my own photographic perspective. My background as a fashion photographer has led me to feel the need to convey my messages mainly through my photography, so get ready to be blown away! When I write my outfit posts, I don’t just show you the brands I’m wearing, but I always try to show my readers how I conceptualised a look, how to style according to both necessity and aesthetic, and how to apply my own styling techniques to their own looks. I also upload photography and post-processing tutorials every so often, so stay tuned for more tips to get your photos looking their best!
- What is the best thing about being a blogger?
The best thing about being a blogger is meeting your readers in person and seeing how the simple act of sharing my passion inspires others to do the same. I’ve received one a many heart warming e-mail that really makes me feel like everything I’m doing is worth it. People often only look at the fame and fortune aspect of it, but bloggers should never forget that at the end of the day it’s all about your audience.
