Here’s the short description of the show:

Fauxtography is a comedic web series that follows Jeff, a 20-something year old photographer struggling to find his way in the Instagram Era – where anyone with two thumbs and a phone is now a “professional.” Jeff also finds himself navigating the single life after breaking up with fashion designer Laura, who is now dating Steve (a clueless hipster “Instagram-ographer”).
