Seattle Like a Local

This week on Like a Local I interviewed Becca Tapert, an amazing photographer I have been following on Instagram for a while. She is based in Seattle, one of my favourite American cities, which means she has access to some of the most beautiful wilderness in the Pacific Northwest. You can follow her on Instagram here and buy her amazing prints here.

What do you do for work?

Full time freelance photographer and graphic designer.
