Thomas Kakareko and Loupedeck CT Images by Thomas Kakareko Thomas Kakareko (@thomas_k) is one of the most successful German photographers on Instagram. In conversation with Loupedeck, he talks about his journey and his work with Loupedeck CT. Hey Thomas. Tell me, how did it all start? To be honest, it was almost by accident. I joined Instagram shortly after it launched at the end of 2010 and convinced a friend to sign up as well. At first, the content was pretty unspectacular, with lots of snapshots and cat pictures. The whole topic of sharing pictures or content, in general, was really not that that big of a topic back then. Was it your plan from the beginning to be a professional influencer? Plan is definitely not the right word – the platform was still totally new back then, and the term “influencer” as we use it today didn’t even exist yet. I was unhappy with my studies at the time and was looking for a way to break out. That’s when Instagram appeared as a welcome and promising change.
