katwesterman Scenes From A Road Trip...Not Lost... I had lines inside me, a string of guiding lights .. I had language..Fiction and poetry are doses medicines... I had been damaged and a very important part of me had been destroyed --that was mg reality, the facts of my life.. But on the other side of the facts was who I could be, how I could feel .and as long as I had words for that, images for that and and stories for that then I wasn't lost..Jeanette Winterson 2d

katwesterman Unwritten Letter Series:

Dear @instagram ,

Just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and ask a quick question....My name is Kat Westerman and I am a fine artist/professional photography based out of Los Angeles..A few facts about me -I have an irrational fear of aliens and bots... And I am not a bot -before getting into photography I worked for CBS-TV in Los Angeles and there is some footage out there of me doing some pretty funny things for the local magazine show... And proving I am not a bot
3. I have taken portraits of some pretty amazing people including Bill Clinton and as such had to not only pass security clearance but also metal detectors ... Bots can't do that ... This past year on Instagram has been amazing .. Through it I have met people I would have never met if not for this app.. People who have changed my life for the better... And I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that.. Some of these people have now deservedly reached statuses of having over 50k followers. Since Tuesday I have no longer been able to comment on their feeds... I have had several ask me questions and I can't answer... I do try my best to respond to every question and comment made to me... I have pushed the help button and no one answers.. Fair enough. You are very busy.. But is this a glitch in the system? Or a new rule? Is it because you think I'm a bot? Does anyone out there know why this is happening? I do love Instagram.. Kat
Does anyone out there know why this is happening and how to fix it? Or alternatively just tell me something about yourself ...

  •   picobogue oh, a little about myself you say, Kat... well, I just came back from a week in London, and my lungs are still full of the wonderful atmosphere of urban dynamichaos! Cities is where my soul lives - even if my body is currently in a much tinier place, although a "capital" (European geography is very diversified...). But I love seeing so many natural wonders through your beautiful pictures :) 2w
  •   butterflyblue So this is getting common I think. Have you tried direct messaging or email if it's important ? @katwesterman 2w
  •   roseatelou I happen to love your letter and learning about your work and passion. I have no sophistication about IG, to know what is what. What I do know is that this photo is gorgeous. 1w
  •   medium_sound Wow I missed so many shots! And this fantastic letter. You are a seriously fascinating person and when we finally have that coffee and I can't wait to hear your stories!! As for the IG nonsense, it keeps happening to me in weird spurts and it is beyond frustrating. Hope they fix whatever is going on <3 1w
  •   socal_ernie @katwesterman yeah, i had problems like yours as well. very frustrating for sure. hope its all cleared up for you now. amazing pic btw! 7d
  •   mimszy Just fabulous! 6d
  •   mackelleen I had those problems too, and dare I say, this caption is definitely the best outcome of all that frustration!!!! I so enjoy your work! 6d

Video Katherine Westerman
katwesterman It's been a couple of days since I released the free for all and I'm blown away by the incredible entries that have been made so far! The range of creativity and uniqueness of ideas is amazing.. The world of editing is still somewhat elusive and to see what people can do and how to do it is such a gift.. This video was made for the #katwesterman_ffa1 using one of my photos and shows the process behind the edit.. I am in awe of the level of work and skill here... So fun to see the process ... This awesome video is by @kerry_fin ... Check out his feed to see more equally as incredible work... I will continue to feature work from the free for all coming up..also thank you everyone for your kind words and support. It means the world to me... 3w
