Name:Tiffany Mitchell

Place you live: Nashville, Tennessee

Occupation: Stylist/photographer focusing mainly on food, fashion, health and adventure working as a freelancer/Instagrammer

Preoccupation: Feeding people, gathering and exploring!

Place your Instagrams were taken? Nashville!

Can you sum up Nashville? Nashville is big and small at the same time, jam-packed with huge talent, but tangible. There’s an incredibly welcoming and supportive creative community here that I’ve completely fallen in love with!

What is a perfect day in Nashville? A perfect day would be breakfast at Sam & Zoe’s, getting a few hours of work done at Steadfast Coffee (with a few refills of their Coffee Soda…AMAZING), a bike ride through Harpeth State Park if the weather’s good, dinner at Edley’s BBQ or City House, then drinks, music and a bonfire with friends!

If Nashville was a person or character who would it be and why? Nashville would be Jared Leto. Good at everything and surprisingly down to earth.

What is your editing process? In-phone editing is always a mix of Snapseed, VSCO and Instagram’s built-in editing tools. The specific edits change every time, but those are always in the lineup!

Has Instagram/phoneography affected how you shoot? ABSOLUTELY! It has challenged me to capture true moments more accurately as I perceive them, because I want the story I’m telling to welcome people in on things as if they were there with me. I really love how IG has affected my shooting!

Can you give a couple tips to aspiring Instagram photographers? Just be you! Like any other social media channel, IG can become a drain on your actual life and creativity if you start trying to emulate what others are doing instead of growing the real you. It’s a recipe for burnout. But you’ll never run out of inspiration or things to share if your goal is to dig deeper into who you are and what you love.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers? @local_milk, @foodstories and @whatforbreakfast. I LOVE FOOD!
