Stockholm’s Best Instagrammers

For the best instagrammers in Stockholm, Lola A. Åkerström gets behind the creative community Instagrammers Stockholm – #igersstockholm

It doesn’t take much to realize just how photogenic Stockholm is and beyond capturing the city’s pretty skylines, there are nooks, crannies, and corners where Stockholmers truly live and thrive.

For #igerstockholm, that’s the goal. To share everyday, ground level snapshots as a peek into the vibrant heart of our city.

So I reached out to Daša Sinclair @dashable, the creative force behind this community – Instagrammers Stockholm to share a bit more about community. Daša is a social media consultant and photographer known as @dashable making “#dashableaventures and being a #heartkeentraveler.”

The group organizes various instawalks and is Stockholm’s main link to the greater Instagram community. Participants share their photos using the #igersstockholm hashtag on Instagram.

When and why did you become interested in photography?

I started being interested in photography when I was six years old. My father was a big photo enthusiast and so I think I became one too. I love to play with light and also capture my feelings in moments.

On Stockholm and community…

I love Sweden overall and Stockholm is a great city with so many cute perfect spots that you can relax and and enjoy. I was new in town and wanted to know  and connect with as many people as possible. I enjoy meeting new people and also connecting them with others.

What are your favourite photography apps? Do you have a set process for editing your photos, if any?

My favourite app is Snapseed and with that I do almost all.
