World Wide Instagram 16
Added on 11/17/2018
A few weeks ago, we celebrated Worldwide InstaMeet 16 (#WWIM16??) with the theme #KindComments, a global movement to spread kindness on and off Instagram. In Indonesia, some InstaMeets involve days of travel and gatherings of up to 1,000 people in dramatic landscapes, while the smaller InstaMeets demonstrate the incredible creativity of the Instagram community and how much fun it can be to connect in real-life to spread kindness. Here’s a look at how Indonesia celebrated #WWIM16

Recommendations

Ardiles is first and foremost an excellent photographer /videographer but I have only worked with him directly as a fixer for television news crews in the aftermath of the earthquake in Palu in 2018. I recommend him highly. He is a cool guy, always charming and positive whatever the conditions but he is also creative both logistically and editorially as well as competitive, focussed and hard-working. I would be more than happy to work with him again on any job in the region.
