We all have those unique/interesting/quirky people we like to follow on social media. But who’s flying under the radar? We asked some of Kansas City’s best and brightest social media influencers one simple question: Who are some local folks we need to be following and why?
“For us here at the prestigious All the Yums, Inc. we immediately thought of Sheppa (or Appehs, which is his Insta handle). Why? Mostly because he fills us with tremendous jealously and rage for the simple fact that he is so much more creative and talented then we are. Hyperlapses, dolly zooms, stop motion, drone work, timelapses—every post is just so different than everything else out there. He has a style of his own.
Sheppa is really pushing the limits of content and constantly inspires us to try to move away from the tried-and-true top downs, macro shots and 120fps slow-mo crutch. Until we actually try to do it, realize how much we suck at it, and retreat back to Lightroom like the French from Russia in winter.
We’ve never spoken to him, interacted with him (outside of liking all his stuff) or anything, but you better believe we IG stalk him aggressively. In the best way possible.”
