Outdoors enthusiast makes fun of highly improbable campsite photos

Stock photography is always good for a laugh, as artistic license often gets in the way of reality. Instagrammer @YouDidNotSleepThere, aka Luisa Jeffery, finally got fed up and started cataloging the most staged campsite images.

National Geographic did a nice profile on the anonymous chronicler of camping whimsy:

What’s your favorite camping spot?

If I told you I'd have to kill you.

I can respect that. Can you tell us what inspired you to start this account?

I was a huge fan of @youdidnoteatthat and @youdidnotskatethat when they were active. Then while on a rafting trip my friend suggested we set up a tent just to get a shot for Poler [an outdoor retailer]. Once we got home, I started noticing how absurd some of photos circulating Instagram were and it all happened from there.

So how long have you been reposting images of these unbelievable outdoorsmen?

I think I started in the summer of 2015 and am shocked I'm still doing it.
