I am a North Devon, UK, based amateur (hobbyist/enthusiast) photographer, Instagrammer with over 17,000 Instagram followers on my main account (and in excess of 25,000 followers across all social media channels)..
My main passion is seascapes and landscapes, although recently I have begun doing more wedding, event and portrait photography.
I was an early adopter of the Instagram social media platform. I have been on Instagram virtually since its first inception (although I did have a two-year hiatus). Over time it has become my social media of choice and I find it is the best platform for sharing my photographic work. For me, it acts as my portfolio, my gallery, as well as a source of information, inspiration and motivation.
I have published an eBook aiming to help photographers maximise their use of Instagram. I also offer helpful Instagram tips and information via this site or through my secondary @kistogram Instagram account [follow me].
Photo recognition and competition wins
