We chat to content creator Eddie Garcia, about his lifestyle as a photographer split between Geneva, Miami and London, and where he finds his creative inspiration. Check out Eddie's work here, and read on to find out more about he likes to unwind...

 

Before we begin, describe what you do in one sentence.

I’m a product designer turned photographer.

It’s actually a lot more complicated than that, because I don't just do (or photograph) one thing. I was always told to be careful not to become a jack of all trades and master of none. I've obviously gone against that and do a multitude of things to satisfy my creative needs. Photography has always been at the centre of it all though. 

 

Talk us through a typical day in your life.

There’s no such thing as a typical day for me, but most of them include a lot of coffee, walking my dog, and taking about 2300 photos (seriously) - 95% of them end up on the cutting room floor.

How do you manage to make time to relax? How important is downtime to you?

Every morning I give myself one hour to enjoy my coffee, it’s an hour I get to not think or worry about anything. It’s extremely important, I wouldn’t be able to function otherwise.

 

How would you describe the ultimate way you’d choose to relax and unwind from a busy day…

I wish I could just go to a chalet in the Swiss Alps with a view of the snowy mountains every day. There’s nothing I find more relaxing than that.

Which is your favourite place out of London, Geneva and Miami? Why?

This is impossible for me to answer. Miami is where some of my closest friends are, Geneva is where my family is (which means I get fed and spoiled every time I go) and London is simply home… for now anyway! 


If experiencing a creative block, how do you recharge your creativity?

Travelling helps, I find that new cities are always the most inspiring. I usually get bursts of creativity when I see something I'm accustomed to done in a different way.

 

Three random picks from your bookshelf/ music collection. Go.

Adele and Ben Howard’s entire discography all day every day - Currently reading ‘TED Talks: The official TED guide to public speaking’ (putting my wishes out in the universe)


If you had an extra hour in the day, how would you spend it?

Probably planning how I can best used the other 24 hours in day - Or daydreaming, that’s more realistic.
