Katya Jackson London Photo Guide

My story

I moved to London in April 2014 and knew only a few people here. I started taking photos of this city and uploaded them on Instagram. And that was the life-changing moment for me. I discovered lots of amazing London accounts through hashtags, went to Insta meetings and met lots of interesting people. Later on, I started this blog and launched my first digital product – London Photo Guide.

 

Instagram allowed me to launch a few creative projects, collaborate with brands and make money. It also introduced me to a lot of like-minded people who became my friends. I can see endless opportunities there if you know what you are doing.

Now, I would like to personally invite you to do one of the following (or perhaps everything):

  1. If you would like to set up a solid foundation for your Instagram account, please take my free email course ‘Build an authentic Instagram account’.
  2. To connect with other Instagrammers to discuss tips, tricks and success stories, please join my Facebook group InstaHUB – a community for Instagram content creators.
  3. If you are a Londoner please like my Facebook Page ‘It’s London Baby’.

Thanks for visiting my site!

    Hello there!

    I’d love to receive a postcard from you, too. My fave coffee is Clipper coffee (they have a wide variety of teas and coffees) because of its gentle taste and splendid flavours. You should definitely try it, if you haven’t. I usually buy a bag of Clipper products whenever I’m in the UK (sadly, they don’t ship to Russia).

    Have a lovely day,
    Maria

    Hello!
    Coffee is something I can’t spend my day without and my favourite coffee’s glacè. So I do love to read your ‘coffee guide in London ‘ and look at the rest of your feed, it is really really inspiring. Keep it up please.

    Good afternoon! I’d really like to get a postcard from you because I want to put it on the ceiling above my bed and to see it every morning before starting my day. So, i badly need at least one of them 😉 Actually, I don’t have any preferences about coffee, I like all types and kinds of it, but mostly I prefer coffee with milk.
    Have a nice day;)

      Hi Sarah,

      I LOVED Lisbon, I’m sure you will like it too! 🙂

      The place is called Armazem F (www.armazemf.com)
      Google says it’s a concert venue, back back to April there was a riverside terrace where you can enjoy coffee with a very nice view.

      The address is: Rua da Cintura Armazém 65 Cais do Gás-Santos, 1200-109 Lisboa, Portugal

      Let me if you liked it and have a good trip!
      Katya

    Hi Katya,
    It sounds great and thanks for letting me know the location. We will be there for a week and really looking forward to lots of sunshine and coffee.
    I really appreciate your reply and I’ll let you know!
    So excited, only a few days to go!
    I’m so happy to have discovered your blog 🙂

    Hello! I am not drinking coffee at all. I would opt for tea flavoured with bergamot.

    Hello Katya, I haven’t been so long in London ad you, but I am also discovering it through mobile photography. Reading about cafés is always a good guide to the city flavor.
    Would you go for a coffee and a couple of mobile photo shots?

      Hi Gustavo,

      thanks for your comment. What was you favorite place in London?

      Actually it’s a good idea to organize a coffee and mobile photography meet up, I will think about it 🙂

      Stay tuned,
      Katya

    I love your politeness.
    I hope you/we can make the meet up.
    A café I like is Paul, across South Kesington Station.
