Instagram is a fantastic platform filled with exciting imagery from all kinds of amazing photographers. It is one of the most visual social networks, so it’s only natural that it is a favorite among photographers. There are a ton of image-makers who upload amazing pictures on their profiles, many of whom post on a daily basis. In this post, I list 10 photographers on Instagram worth following. These are not necessarily picture-takers with a huge following, but simply those who post quality imagery. Many blog posts of this nature tend to focus solely on users with a massive social media following. There are tons of amazing picture-takers out who don’t have thousands of followers, and it’s important to showcase amazing work regardless of follower count.
