This month’s featured photographer is Haley Plotkin.
“I run the travel Instagram account @readysetjetset. I’m 25 years old and based out of Austin, Texas, though I spend as much time as I can on the road,” says Plotkin. “Outside of Instagram, I photograph corporate events and live music. Shooting bands is how I taught myself photography. I just wrapped up covering SXSW in Austin.
“It’s really hard to choose my favorite photo, but this one is up there. I took this in Venice last summer during a sunset gondola ride. Yes, it’s a touristy activity, but the image is quite magical. I love how the light bounces off of the water and the metal of the boats. I took the photo with my Canon 6D and a Tamron 24–70mm f/2.8 lens. readysetjetset.net
