Welcome to debra-armstrong.com.
I am an accomplished writer with experience in writing for lifestyle brands, airlines, hotels, spas and the travel industry in general. I have worked in travel for over 30 years. I have studied Travel and Lifestyle Writing at the London School of Journalism.
More recently, I write features about green/responsible tourism and pitch stories to newspapers and magazines in an attempt to raise awareness on subjects very important and close to my heart.
With my photography, I tend to gravitate to people. Environmental portraiture has become my favourite genre.
To contact me or enquire about my availability for writing or a photo shoot, please visit the Enquiries page.
Thank you for visiting my website. I look forward to being of assistance.
MORE ABOUT MY WORK

On other days, I may be on a plane to Laos or London or a ferry to Kao Tao, a neighbour of Koh Samui. I may even be writing a feature about hiking on Hong Kong Island.
I am an independent writer and photographer. For 30 years, I worked as a sales and marketing professional in the airline and lifestyle industries.
