As you may well of noticed over the past few months there hasn’t been much activity on the homepage of our website. We feel there has been a shift in the way people are interacting with imagery, and just like the photographic world we like to evolve and move forward with new ideas. So while we figure out what those next steps entail, we have been having fun just going 100% visual and bringing you constant photographic treats on both our Instagram & Tumblr feeds. And besides this works great for the 3 dyslexics who run WB, less writing woo!
The great thing about these social platforms is they are completely driven by the enthusiasm and photographs that come from all our amazing viewer. We are trying to make them as interactive as possible with selected Instagrammers taking over our feed and a submission based tumblr.
I have to say the Instagram element is my favourite at the moment, our idea is driven by the joy you get when taking pictures whilst on a journey hence the #wbjourneys. We ask Instagrammers who are heading out on a journey be that a week end visit to their Nan’s or a week in California to take over our feed and bring our viewers pictures from all corners of the world. The feed has been to some great places already, Paris, Mumbai, Tokyo, Cornwall, Berlin, L.A to name a few. One takeover that I felt really grasped and kicked off the good times was Arianna Lago aka @jellybellybella trip to Mexico. Full of colour and enthusiasm Arianna treated us to so many different things to look at and gave us a lovely insight into a great Country.
If you are heading on a Journey and think you would be the right kind of person to take over get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and like wise if you feel your images are what we are looking for on our tumblr keep the submissions rolling!
And now I am going to leave you with a selection of Arianna’s takeover pictures. Enjoy.
