An influencer is defending her call to post a photograph shoot of her motorbike accident

Nashville-based life style blogger Tiffany Mitchell denies her mid-accident photograph shoot was staged or sponsored.

A lifestyle blogger primarily based in Nashville is responding to critics who questioned why she turned her alarming motorbike accident into an impromptu photograph shoot.

Tiffany Mitchell, who has over 211,000 followers on Instagram, told BuzzFeed News she “would never flip a really vital personal story like this into a brand campaign.”

“I’m unhappy that some individuals are taking it that approach,” she added, before requesting BuzzFeed News not proceed with writing this story because it would “draw negative attention.”

Mitchell shared the post two weeks ago after she got into a motorbike accident that left her shaken and with minor scrapes.

A photographer friend was driving alongside taking photos of her at the time. The friend, named Lindsey, and then continued to snap photos throughout and after the traumatic event.

All of those photos — together with a number of Mitchell lying on the road being cared-for, and one with a bottle of Smartwater — were then shared in a series of Instagram photos with a prolonged caption.
