Who or what is your biggest source of inspiration?

When I started with photography, @kosten was my favorite Instagram account to follow and get inspiration from. Currently different things inspire me, but the pictures from @obelixy continue to amaze me.

What do you do when you are not on Instagram?

That is a difficult question haha. I spend a lot of time on Instagram. But I work full-time at Mr. Morris and in my spare time I take photos. I spent my remaining hours drinking coffee and asleep. I will go back to school in September.

What is your favorite hashtag?

Is it lame to say #thisiseindhoven? Just kidding. I think I'm going for #depthobsessed. I enjoy photos with a lot of depth, lines and bokeh.

What post are you most proud of?

I have framed the photo of the Emmasingel with the Admirant and the Light Tower in the foreground and put it in my room. I am very happy with the result. It is one of my first long exposures.

What do you think is the most photogenic place in Eindhoven?

For me that is the Vesteda tower. You can look at it from many different perspectives, while many people would go for Strijp-S (which is certainly a photogenic place and will only become more fun).

What are your favorite Eindhoven accounts?

You interviewed him a while ago. I really like the old photos from @kos_stamoulis. You have to scroll down a bit, and beyond the 'white area' you see the photos that make me jealous.
