Recently I’ve been sharing some of my more artsy photographs on the mobile app known as instagram and 500px so as to gain some traction in the social media scene. The benefit of being successful on social media sites such as instagram and 500px are that I’m able to showcase my work to a much broader audience than if I simply stick to my usual blog and facebook account. As such I’d very much like you as my followers on my blog and on Facebook to also consider following me on instagram and 500px.
Instagram has become a huge cultural phenomenon mostly used for people taking selfies or pic of the food they’re about to eat. But instagram is also a great social networking opportunity for photographers to showcase their work to many followers instantly. Also followers who are fans of such photographers are also to see what they’re up to next.As such I’d like to invite you to follow me on instagram by visiting my profile page here. If you do follow me on instagram you will be updated whenever I upload a new image. I may upload an image from my landscape, wedding or any other gallery.
I’ve also joined up a more professional version of instagram called 500px, where 500px is to instagram as the louvre is to your local cafe. Again 500px is a social network, but with a difference, only really good photographers manage to do well on the site. It’s certainly worth a browse and again I’d like to invite you to follow me here for updates on my best work. 500px does not limit you to a square format so it really allows a photographer’s image to be shown in it’s full intended glory. Eventually I’m also able to sell my work on 500px, where as doing so on instagram requires a bit of extra work. Even if you don’t follow me on 500px, the social networking site with well worth a visit to see so extraordinary work by some of the best modern photographers alive today.
