How did dreachong.com start?
Andrea: Ironically, I got ‘forced’ into it, blogging was seen as another platform for me to connect with viewers of a YouTube series I was hosting. I never really thought of being a blogger, and I honestly had no idea what to write about. I figured, since was doing some modelling at the side, that I should talk about fashion, and that’s how it all began!
What do you love most about blogging?
I love how it trains me to be versatile and teaches me not to be complacent. Apart from staying up to date with social media (of course!) and the latest in consumer trends, I have inadvertently become a jack-of-all-trades: from honing interpersonal skills when I meet new people, picking my creative brain through heading campaign pitches or proposals, playing secretary whilst sorting out tedious administrative work, to… learning and being proficient with photography, videography, and post-processing (whew!). I like to believe that it’s never good to be ‘comfortable’, being a blogger pushes me to be better.
What equipment do you use?
I mostly shoot on my Canon 5D Mark III, using my 50mm, 24-70mm, and 85mm lens.
