To celebrate the launch of our new Pocket London guide, we’re offering 15 lucky Instagrammers the chance to join Lonely Planet experts Sally Schafer (@rightsideofcity) and James Smart (@smartbadger) and prominent urban instagrammer @mrwhisper on a bespoke walking tour in London on Saturday 29th March. We’ll give you all our insider tips on where to go in the capital, and some top tips for Instagramming your travels.

Who is Mr Whisper?

Bal Bhatla, better known as @mrwhisper, is a mobile street photographer and has built a reputation by capturing candid photographs of people travelling around London. For the last 6 years, he’s been exploring the possibilities of mobile photography. But it wasn’t until he got his first iPhone in late 2010 that he started to take it seriously. That’s when he joined Instagram – and he hasn’t looked back since. He is considered one of the “top 13 Instagrams to follow if you’re missing London” by Buzzfeed and his images have been shown in various exhibitions around the world and featured in newspapers, magazines and blogs.

Mother London | SFTW | The Instagram Issue – featuring yours truly.


“Instagram only launched back in 2010, but has since rocketed to fame as the choice camera app for iPhone and Android smart-phone users. And they just can’t get enough of it, photographing just about everything they come across. So in this issue devoted to Instagram, we give SFTW readers a mini-lowdown on the app. We have insights on why it’s been successful; why Instagrammers are addicted to taking pictures; how brands are using it, and how it’s inspired a whole host of off shoot products and inventions. Oh and we’ll throw in a list of Instagrammers to follow too.”

Big up @motherlondon & @SFTW for the shout out!
