FocusOn 1.59: John Lomas IV aka @jlom4 on Instagram


Instagram is a great creative field for talented people.

jlom11 helps you to discover, sometimes unkown, surprising users. People addicted to Instagram, telling about their lives, revealing their passions and sharing Instagram tips.

In our last interview we featured the King of Clowns of Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza show @soarfeat (see interview here) today we feature John Lomas IV aka @jlom4 from Jacksonville, Florida.

“Every chance I get to connect and meet with individuals who I have only seen through their photos, is always a humbling experience. The world, the people in it, their lives and their stories, is what inspires me and sparks my creativity, thats what I feed off.”


His name is John Lomas IV…


Quick story, I used my account originally to save filtered images. Once my photo saved with the filtered image, I deleted the photo. After awhile, I started to follow people who tweaked my interest and I soon wanted to mimic the photos they had taken. Since that time, I have been able to meet some amazing artists, some who are professionals and some who are just having fun.”
