Can you sum up the place you Fenton? It is a cozy town that changes with the seasons.

For the visitor?  Go to the Fenton Museum

How long have you been using Instagram? About a year and a half

What camera phone do you use to shoot? iPhone 4

Editing process?/What apps do you use, if any to edit your photos? Afterglow or VSCO Cam

Do you create images outside of instagram? Yes

Has Instagram/phoneography affected how you shoot? It has made me fall in love with photography in a new way and has really inspired my to shoot for myself.  My environment has taken on new life.

Does your feed differ from your work outside of Instagram? Yes, I do portrait photography for work, but with Instagram, I can focus on finding beauty in my everyday surroundings.  I very rarely feature people in my Instagram photos.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers? This changes constantly as I find more and more amazing photographers out there, but for the moment I’d say @kevinruss @ashley_meiners, and @bijouxself.  So many creative geniuses working magic with their camera phones!
