Kistography – Kim Stone
I am a North Devon, UK, based amateur (hobbyist/enthusiast) photographer, Instagrammer with over 16,000 followers and influencer.
My main passion is seascapes and landscapes, although recently I have begun doing more 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. 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].
Photo recognition and competition wins
I have had Instagram features and competition wins by numerous brands and hubs, including Canon UK, Jessops, Manfrotto, Telegraph UK, Ordnance Survey and Visit Scotland. I was a Jessops #ShareYourSummer winner in 2016 – with my photo being featured in the window of every Jessops store across the UK. Holiday Cottages listed me in their 10 UK instagram accounts to follow in 2018. I was also featured in the January 2017 issue of Digital Photo magazine as their Instagram Hero.
Influencer and collaborations
I also work as an influencer for brands – promoting and sharing their products via my social media feeds including Huawei, Expedia, Starburst and Adobe. Please contact me for more information or for my Media Kit.
