The Khoollect Squad Series: meet Freya Dowson

The Khoollect Squad Series is a chance for us to introduce our community to our most-loved digital stars — the bloggers, Snapchatters and Instagrammers  — who are setting the pace on and offline. This squad is online, on point and, now, on your radar too. We think you’ll love the worlds of #thekhoollectsquad as much as we do.

This week, we’d like to introduce you to Freya. Based in London, this adventurous photographer shoots and edits her work while travelling all over the world. With a love for the outdoors and creating meaningful work; it’s difficult to not feel inspired when observing her touching photography. Always on the move, Freya’s photography captures distant cities and cultures we dream of discovering. If you’ve got a lot of love for adventure and elephants, it’s time you get to know Freya.

Name: Freya Dowson

Instagram account: @freyadowson


Where in the world do you live? Hackney, East London.

What do you #khoollect? Little carvings of elephants that I try to pick up in each country I visit.

What’s your favourite recipe? My recipe for macaroni and cheese, I could eat it every day!

What’s your favourite film? Lost in Translation

What’s your favourite book? My current favourite is Love, Life and Elephants: An African Love Story by Daphne Sheldrick

What’s some of the best advice you’ve ever received? It’s easy to think that everyone has it figured out when you’re on the outside looking in, but the truth is that nobody ever really knows what they’re doing, everyone is just making it up as they go along. So don’t hold back on what you really want in life until you’re ready, nobody is ever ready.
