Name:Jiri Siftar

Place you live: London

Occupation: Interaction Designer

Preoccupation: Instagram

Place your Instagrams were taken? London

Can you sum up London? Fast paced, eclectic, dynamic and laid back, organized and chaotic, full of opportunities, full of character, full of tourists.

What is a perfect day in London? When the sun is up on Sunday and a mildly warm day pulls everyone into streets and parks and picnics to dispense them later across myriads of pubs and places, drinking and eating while surrounded by friends.

If London was a person or character who would it be? Gandalf crossbred with Spider-Man and Vivian Maier.

How long have you been using Instagram? Five years

Do you shoot with your phone or other cameras or both? Both, but mostly my beloved Nikon D810.

What is your editing process? I’m old school, so I always use Camera+, Instagram app and sometimes Snapseed.

Has Instagram/phoneography affected how you shoot? I’m often composing for square even if I don’t need to.

Can you give a couple tips to aspiring Instagram photographers? Post just the best shots and shoot enough to always have something new that puts the previous stuff to shame.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers? @thomas_k, @jasonmpeterson, @macenzo.
