1) Tell us a little about yourself. What are you doing now and where do you come from?

2) What are your topics of interest? What do you post on Instagram the most?

I’m very interested in technology, but I don’t usually post about that. Instead, most of my posts are usually photos of buildings, nature, myself… I’ve basically inherited my mum’s interest in photography.

3) How did your Instagram name come about?

No special meaning behind it, just my full name.

4) What are some apps you use to edit your photos? Share with us your photo-editing routine!

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of VSCO, but I also use Snapseed, Pixlr and a few others to perfect the fine details. I’ve recently downloaded a new one called Nebi which allows me to add new lighting and 35mm film filters.

5) Any Instagrammers whom you really like? Which Instagrammer inspires you the most?

Personally, I love Benji Thorpe and Ricki Rosa, though they aren’t the most famous Instagrammers I follow.

6) If there’s one thing your fellow Instagrammers just gotta try now, what’s it gonna be?

Definitely the grain effect, it really can change an image completely. If the lighting in the original shot is quite artificial, some grain can really make a big difference to the end result.

I personally don’t see myself as an influencer, I just like taking, editing and posting pictures.

I would say that the key is making sure posts and promotions are as natural as possible – Don’t create an unrealistic scenario. Also, make sure the product being promoted is the best out there.

There’s no point copying somebody else, you have to give people a reason to follow you.

10) What do you like best about partnering with brands?

I love the fact that It allows me to share the best products, promotions, and brands with my followers.
