Hannah Sider: On Photography, Miley Cyrus & The Best Travel Spots
We sat down will cool girl Hannah Sider about photography, Miley Cyrus, and her favorite travel spots! Read the interview below:
How did you get into photography?
I started shooting when I was a teenager as a hobby and taught myself the basics. I am almost always carrying a 35mm camera and my life has been very well-documented. People started seeing my photos and asking me to shoot things for them and eventually it turned into a full-time job.
How did you meet Miley and what was it like shooting her?
I met Miley through a mutual friend after her concert and then we went out together after. As I said, I’m always documenting and I happened to have a polaroid camera on me that night. We had a lot of fun and she was doing something hilarious in every photo.
What camera do you think every girl should own?
Every girl should have a disposable camera on them at all times.
Top 5 travel destinations? What’s your favorite city?
I don’t think I’ve traveled enough yet to list the top 5 places people should visit (there’s still so much I want to see) but one of my favorite cities that I’ve ever been to is Cape Town, South Africa. It is incredibly beautiful there. Also everyone should definitely visit California – for the women, weed and weather. Favorite city is NYC, hands down. It has challenged me and rewarded me and I love it.
What song is most repeated on your ipod?
Currently really feeling the new Rome Fortune album, especially THIS.
If you could shoot anyone who would it be?
I would love to photograph Jeremy Meeks.
