Check out Alina Los Angeles Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alina Los Angeles.

Alina, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My story is indeed unique. I’m a founder of Friendly Local Guides and organize private local tours for travelers.
I’ve always loved traveling so moving to the US was super exciting for me and a big step forward. In America I’ve lived in 3 cities so far – NYC, San Francisco and LA – and I’ve decided to settle down in LA.

Los Angeles is extremely photogenic, and it gave me what any other city couldn’t give – abundance of sun and exotics views. I’ve become a photographer and Instagram influencer all thanks to LA. I know it doesn’t matter what city you live in for IG bloggers, but it is only in LA where I finally unleashed my potential.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I’m living a lifestyle of being a tourist in your own city where you live in. I think it’s essential to have this sparkle in your eyes, have a curious mind and greed to explore every street of your city. You can find inspiration in every corner if you are looking for it. And in LA inspiration is the second name of the city. What I do is I organize Los Angeles Photo Walks for locals and tourists coming to LA. We explore one neighborhood at a time, but we explore it. From the eyes of locals and tourists, from different perspectives and angles, through the lens of Nikon, Canon, iPhones and whatever you have at hand. And we share experience, ideas, and views. And we make new friends, of course. I find this photo walks a pure inspiration from all sides.

What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
Think creatively. Pursue things that inspire you. And create something different. Don’t follow everyone else, don’t imitate anyone, don’t wear someone else’s masks, those are already taken. Be different and create something unique. Be yourself. If you are true to yourself, you are already unique, on default.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
You can see my photos in my Instagram account @alina.losangeles and my facebook https://www.facebook.com/alinalosangelesblog. And feel free to join my Los Angeles Photo Walks, there are almost 1000 inspired people of us here https://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Photo-Walks/.
