HALEIGH WALSWORTH is an American writer, photographer, and filmmaker with a passion for storytelling.
You made it, and I for one am happy to have you here. If you stick around and have a read, I’m sure you will be too. Writer, photographer, and filmmaker sounds like a bit of an inflated job title. The truth is though, things just happened that way. Of course a lot of other things had to happen first for me to get here.
At twenty, I moved to Paris from California not knowing a single soul. After my Bachelors Degree in Communications from The American University of Paris and learning to parler français, I got right down to business working in a branding agency for two years. As a digital native, I liked the challenge of marketing in 140 characters or less. I pursued opportunities in social media, and had a nice run at managing social media for some of Europe’s leading luxury brands and America’s top film production companies.
Somewhere along the way I started Making Magique. I believe that life is what you make of it, and I want mine to be nothing short of magic. For me that’s having a camera in my bag and a pen in my hand, making beautiful things along the way. Recently, I signed off at the office to make more room for those kind of opportunities that have been coming way. This year I’m betting on myself to make it independently doing the things I love. Out there making magic, I’d say the odds are in my favor. Either way, it’s going to make a great story.
