In 2007,  he got his first iPhone and it he admits suddenly his “IT” world and life was changing… He became just another Apple freak !

In January 2011,  with 4 friends of his friends he launched a iDevice Photographer Community called iPhonesia. (Check here @Iphonesia Fan Page)

.

They started by communicating each other using their yahoogroups mailing list and the group started with 50 members, and now, after 5 months, they have more than 600 members of Indonesian iPhoneographer across the globe who joined them.

They also use twitter to spread the words about iPhoneography and also Instagram and they have more than 1200 followers right now in their Igers Iphonesia Group.

.
@Iphonesia is one of the most active Igers Group in the world.

Starting with this iPhonesia, @gunhp‘ s passion in IPhoneography is getting stronger every day.

He says he’ s so happy that finally he could make this Community bigger and stronger.

.

.

And @Gunhp that is a definitely humble member thanks us,  Instagramers.com, which also contributed in what we could, to their growing members. But really the work is his work! @Iphonesia Is THE Indonesian Community in IG. And we want to “congrat” him and his community!

According to the web Populagram, #iPhonesia is, at the moment, the hashtag with “most popular” photos all over the world!

They even overtook #iphoneography and #cats in this race! Funny!

We want to thank @gunhp for its passion, interest and his contribution to Instagram Movement all over the world!

Gun accepted to answer to our weekly interview. Thanks for your work and for that too!

.

When did you first join IG? 

.

10-10-10 yes… I first join and post to IG on the very special date, it’s October 10 2010, so it will be read as 10-10-10  (by the way it means 4 day after instagram Release! Great Gun!)

.

Why are you so addicted to IG?
.

Hahaha… Lol… Looks like I’m addicted to IG frankly talking, because i like to become popular. It motivated me from time to time to explore and increasing my skill in iPhoneography.

.

Were you already found of photo before?

.

.

Yes, i used DSLR, canon EOS 40D. But as a hobby, but i am a newbie in SLR and don’t have any knowledge of photography skill.

.

For you, which are the 3 best pics apps?

.

As most of Igers, i use three of the Most Popular and recommendable Apps in the market.

Camera+ for his simple use, understanding and range of effects. Filterstorm and PSExpress.

.

How long time do you spend a day in IG?

.

Hmm… LoL… Maybe around 2-3 hours in total of 1 day.

.

Doing what?

.

From capturing photos, editing, to uploading, liking all friends photos and also commenting or replying comment.

.

Which is your favorite pic?

.

The first pic showing a bike jumper. I think this is my best shot  i used ProCamera (burst mode) to take this shot
And edited it with camera+ and PSExpress

.

What have been your first reaction when you had your first Pop?

.

It’s like ” wow”… Can’t explain it… LOL…. Like getting a doorprize!

.

Do your “non Instagramers” friends and family are bothered by your IG addiction?

.

Some did first. Mostly my 2 kids and my wife were complaining about my activities… But now they even understand and also support me. Sometimes they show me some good spot to shot and also commenting my photos before i upload it to IG

.

.

Tell us a little bit about the activities of your local group @iphonesia?

.

iPhonesia stands for iDevice Photographer Indonesia, we are a community of iDevice photography lovers in Indonesia. Starting with our same passion with iphoneography. With my friends @arieslukman @kezsutanto @jakontil and @pongkipong we built this community from a scratch.

.

We have a mission that is to become an “iphoneography community” that will bring Learnings to all members in view to optimize their iDevice use and especially in iphoneography.

.

A funny anecdote in your short Instagramer life?

.

Beware, once you know IG, you will AIGS. AIGS means Addicted to IG Syndrome! lol.

.

A trick you would recommend?

.

A trick? Hmmm… I just encourage all of IGers to shot anything anytime. Don’t be afraid or shy by exploring our world. So many simple things around us are so beautiful object to capture. And also explore the app too. Many photography app are a junk but many have hidden treasures too, you wont find until you go deeper exploring the app.

.

Something you would say to a new user?

.

Frankly talking, first of all… Don’t be a Instabeggar. Instabeggar is someone asking to be followed in others photo stream. If you new, follow as many as possible others people first.

Don’t ask others to follow you back. Show your best photos, then let it flow. Check your nearest iG community and join them. In example, If you are an Indonesian, whereever you are, join to iPhonesia, if you are in madrid, you can join Igersmadrid etc… (Lol Gunhp)

.

Hope you enjoy this new Interview and our visit to Indonesia!

.

Check @iphonesia group and pics. Really interesting and colorful images of part of our IG world!
