Today we have a special interview with 19 years old, UK-based photographer and Instagram influencer Ethan Manser. Please find some quick stats about @ethanmanser and his full interview just below.
Describe your Instagram profile, what you post and why.
I like to post photos mainly of nature and landscapes. I think that Earth is an amazing, vast and dynamic place and I like to spend time catching my angle and viewpoint of it.
When did you start your Instagram experience?
I joined Instagram in late 2011.
Did you start with the purpose to make it a job or did it start as a passion that then became a job?
No, I started it as a little hobby. I liked the idea of being able to upload my own photos into a public domain and see what people thought of my photos. Gradually, I grew a following and soon it became much more serious to me because I came to view Instagram as a platform for further opportunities in the field of photography.
What camera/phone do you use to take your pictures?
I use my iPhone 6s and my Nikon D3200. I would strongly recommend both.
What kind of people do you follow on Instagram?
I tend to follow other photographers to gain inspiration, travel ideas and new and different perspectives.
Have you ever accepted to publish a sponsored post for a brand without being paid?
Yes, on several occasions. I have been given products by brands to promote through my photos.
I enjoy the challenge of trying to incorporate differing products into my photography.
Have you ever bought followers or likes?
No, I prefer to grow my profile authentically.
