Occupation: Photographer and Mum to three young boys

Preoccupation: Former Banker

Place your Instagrams were taken? London

Can you sum up London? Vibrant and unique and multi- layered. I love the many tucked away villages which are unique to London and each have their own special style and vibe. It is a truly inspirational city and a photographer’s dream.

What is a perfect day in London? A nice autumn morning, meeting friends for coffee in Artisan in Stamford Brooke and then strolling through my favourite parts of Nottinghill and Holland Park. These areas have everything from quiet pastel coloured streets, to beautiful boutiques and restaurants. A mooch around Portobello Road Market followed by a run in Hyde Park.

If London was a person or character who would it be and why? Ooh that is tricky as London has so many sides to it. I guess it would be a bright and energetic character with a nice quiet and sophisticated edge to it too.

How long have you been using Instagram? Since soon after it launched, so three plus years.

Do you shoot with your phone or other cameras or both? Only iPhone 5s.

What is your editing process? A little VSCOcam and then some Instagram filter. I don’t have a set process, I play a lot.

Has Instagram/phoneography affected how you shoot? Yes, I only see in squares now 🙂 and I rarely use my DSLR. I am so inspired by the photos I see on Instagram that I am constantly driven to hit the streets and photograph.

Can you give a couple tips to aspiring Instagram photographers? Take a couple of hours to just go and explore your area, open your eyes to the places around you, don’t over think it but be instinctive.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers?  There are so many but at the moment I am loving @sixsevensix for beautiful London shots, @lornaluxe for fashion and @ezgipolat for portraits, lifestyle and food.
