The words "hashtag" and "tagging" have become everyday language in the world of social media. As working photographers, we can no longer ignore Instagram which has become a vital part of marketing. It can be a tricky road to wander when deciding what hashtag to use, tagging subjects, clients, locations and what type of photos to post. New York based photojournalist Eric Thayer (handle: ERICTHAYER) will help us delve into this world. With over 45,000 thousand followers, Eric is named "one of the ten professional photographers to follow on Instagram" by makeuseof.com. Eric uses Instagram to promote his daily work, personal projects, and even Mr. Harrison (a fellow photographer's French Bulldog).
So bring your smartphones and an open mind to experience Instagram like you never have before.
