Cathedral spires and sunset silhouettes, gliding swans and freeze-framed Red Arrows – Lincoln life is a photographer’s playground.
The Lincolnite is delighted to announce it has teamed up with creative city snappers for an exciting new social media project, giving them the reins to its Instagram account – @lovelincolnite.
A team of six talented photographers have been chosen as the first curators. The Lincolnite‘s own experienced professionals Steve Smailes and Sean Strange have been joined by local photographers Matthew Lee, Marc Freeman, Kyle Wood and Jason Corrigan.
They’ll be personally publishing their shots of Lincoln life, events, landscapes and street photography onto the feed, creating an exclusive artists’ network and bringing their own unique take on the city directly to the local community and visitors.
The group first began posting on Wednesday, August 9.
The Lincolnite Associate Editor Emily Norton said: “It’s a new concept, but it felt totally fitting to offer the opportunity to the talented photographers around Lincoln.
“The magic of the experience is that alongside reporters’ snapshots of the city, our followers will get raw access to photographers when they are in the field – whether that’s climbing the spires of Lincoln Cathedral or posting action live from the city streets.
You don't have to look far to find a beautiful scene around Lincoln. Looking down the Brayford to High Bridge, the UK's oldest bridge which still has buildings standing on it.

“Our guest curators are all aspiring professionals or established in the community, and they all have their own Instagram accounts, which they will be linking back to and interacting through.
“We’re continuing to welcome Lincoln-based photographers to apply for a guest curator role by emailing a link to their instagram account or online portfolio to [email protected].”
