Happy Friday, everybody!
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend (especially if you’re snowed in), I thought I’d share some of my favorite photographers that I follow on Instagram, and I wanted to share some that wouldn’t be the obvious ones that of course I already follow (like Joe McNally, Peter Hurley, etc.). Here are my 12 favs (in no particular order):
AFAR (Afar Media)
A lot of the folks I follow do travel photography, and I love the collection of images AFAR posts daily. If you go there today, make sure you look at that little ski village shot you see in the first row center.
ELMAKIAS (Adam Elmakias)
There’s a reason this amazing music photographer has nearly 460,000 followers — he’s got amazing images, a really fun feed, and I love his post processing. Really great peek into a the world of music through his eyes.
VIKINGSPHOTOG (Andy Kenutis)
Andy is the Minnesota Vikings team photographer and I’d have to say he’s definitely one of the best team photographers in the league and his Instagram feed is outstanding. I just mentioned him to a buddy of mine who shoots sports professionally and he was alreadly following him. He said the same thing I did about Andy — that guy’s stuff is amazing!
I just love Erik’s style, post processing, and the selection of images he posts (look at that shot in the middle!). Really a wonderful collection of constantly updating images. This guy is good on the both sides of the process!!!
Moose is on Instagram now and he’s posting a wonderful mix of aviation and landscape photography, and I love seeing what he posts each day.
This curated collection is really just beautiful, and one I really look forward to each day. While that don’t have a crush of followers yet…they will.
Don is the team photographer for the Tennessee Vols, and even if you’re not a Vols fan, if you’re into football photography at all, you should still follow Don because he’s among the best — not just with this on field action shots, but all the commercial-style promo work, lighting, and off field stuff that he totally nails.
OK, he has a million followers, so he’s not exactly an unknown treasure, but I love his wintery world. Great style, composition, and subjects. A great one to follow.
His stuff is just absolutely gorgeous. Gorgeous! Nuff said.
Wonderful images from around Europe from a Paris based photographer. I totally dig his work.
If you love seeing behind-the-scenes images of photo shoots, you will so dig their feed. I amazed at some of the set-ups I see on there. It’s ideas and inspiration all wrapped up in one.
This collection is all over the place, and I think that’s what I like about it. You never know what topic you’re going to get, but they’re always great images. A really fun, fascinating feed.
Hope you’ll give some of these a look this weekend (and of course, I’d love to have you following my feed there, which is focused on travel photography. It’s @scottkelby).
