Instagram is where creative and talented people come together and find the perfect platform for self expression and creativity.

.

Instagramers.com wants to contribute to your discovery of surprising and creative users from all walks of life. Their common denominator?  They are people addicted to Instagram telling their stories about small portions of their lives through their pictures, revealing their passions and sharing their best Instagram tips.

Today we introduce you to Stephanie McCombie. She is passionate about animal welfare and taking photos of her dogs makes her very happy as it seems to make other people smile as well!

Welcome to our Instagramers Focus On Stephanie! 

.

I was born in Vancouver, BC. Growing up I spent a lot of time doing art and playing with dogs.

I’m a fan of most furry things with four legs but dogs are my absolute favourite!  I love photography, dog photography  is my passion –  I want to capture the goofy facial expressions, tail-wags and love, and that makes my world a better place.

I’m best known for my series of photos of my two rescued German Shorthaired Pointers, Gus and Travis, in various poses and costumes. My photos have been featured in many magazines, news sites, blogs and advertisements.

You can find me on Instagram on @ifitwags on FacebookTumblr and Flickr .

Describe your best picture on Instagram.  How did you take it, any interesting anecdote?:  I think my favourite pictures change a lot. But this one is one that really got me noticed and mentioned on Instagram.   I made the Instagram mask out of a shopping bag. My dog Gus is happy to sit for treats and was so patient while I took this. It took longer to make the mask than take the shot…
