I am a North Devon, UK, based amateur (hobbyist/enthusiast) photographer, Instagrammer with over 15,000 followers and influencer.
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. The book is available from Amazon [here] - I also offer helpful Instagram tips and information via this site or through my secondary @kistogram Instagram account [follow me].
I have had Instagram features and competition wins by numerous brands and hubs, including Canon UK, Jessops, Manfrotto, Telegraphy, Ordnance Survey and Visit Scotland.
I was a Jessops #ShareYourSummer winner in 2016 - with my photo being featured in the window of every store across the UK.
I was featured in the January 2017 issue of Digital Photo magazine as their Instagram Hero.
I also work as an influencer for brands - promoting and sharing their products via my social media feeds. Please contact me for my Media Kit.
