Stephen McMennamy

Nominated in Instagrammer of the Year

About Stephen McMennamy

Any way you slice it, Stephen McMennamy is an Instagram genius. One of the masterminds behind AT&T’s cute candid kids ad campaign, he also makes the unimaginable come to life by combining moving or still images of two ordinary objects (with similar backgrounds to ensure continuity) and create a surreal and shareable experience for his 225K+ followers. Creative director by day and Instagram sensation by night, @smcmennamy wants to give his followers “a brief moment of joy” through his #combophotos, whether it’s with a Sriracha bottle literally spewing fire or a fashionable woman walking city streets with pencils as legs.
