Description

Following Boston... Great Photography.

- Nikki Sixx/Mötley Crüe

The definition of what it means to be a "photographer" has dramatically changed over the past few years. It's no longer reserved for those who just shoot film, or receive a paycheck to do so. Social media was largely responsible for this shift in how people view the medium and photographers.

Once Instagram was solidified as a social media giant, it became a running joke that users were actual "photographers." The term "social photographer" grew from this skepticism, and used to indeitify those who were incredible taleneted and possessed the ability to tell stories with their images. This was the major catalyst for Producer Michael Kalish, in creating the "Following Boston" documentary film series that launched summer 2015, and is now live in 10 US cities with more to come.

Leveraging Instagram as the pulse and distribution channel for the series, @FollowingBoston has become the hottest hub in Boston featuring local creatives quickly approaching 25k followers, and more than 250k images tagged by the community looking to have their photos featuured... or perhaps to be selected to host an upcoming episode.
