About Us

Hi, yep that’s me. Nora.

The Photo Forest is my offering into this world.

My background is in creativity – lately I have been a graphic/website designer and as a designer I was constantly trawling through stock photo sites trying to find images for my clients, I got frustrated by all the cheesy stock photos out there and I found that all the free stock photos were being overused (know that feeling?).

So I decided to create my own stock photography platform. The whole process took two years from idea to manifestation (I thought I could launch in two months when I first started; #naïve!).

To me The Photo Forest is so much more than just another stock photo site. I longed for an online community, a place to get marketing help and find other business owners in the wellness space. The value in The Photo Forest doesn’t lie in just the photos, but in the marketing workshops I organize, the business mastermind sessions that any member can partake in and the connection between each of us.

I was brought up as a global gypsy so community has always been my number one desire in life. This is what The Photo Forest is.

If my vision resonates with you, I would be so grateful if you could take a moment to share this site with your tribe. Together we can rise strong. I am on a mission to start a #stockphotorevolution, are you ready to join me?

If you want to find out more about me, ask me any questions or give me some feedback, you can write to me at
nora (at) thephotoforest.com

I always reply to my own emails.

With so much love + excitement!
