5 Photographers to Follow on Instagram Right Now

By: Valeria Ramos

In terms of sources for inspiration, Instagram leads the pack for social sites. Sometimes it seems ridiculous how powerful Instagram is, seeing as how people have literally built careers around it. It makes me wonder to what extent social sites can and will be able to influence and control our lives. I realize, as I am publishing this on a social site of some form, that I am being a bit ironic, but I think you get what I'm trying to say. 

Anyway, despite Instagram's capability to increase procrastination and narcisistic tendencies, it is ultimately a magical thing that allows us to share, interact and be inspired by people all around the world. In celebration of that, I am sharing 5 of my favorite photography accounts, most of which, but not all, are fashion focused.

1. Alyssa Greenberg - @smallgirlbiglens 

Alyssa is my favorite fashion photographer at the moment not only because of the great quality but  because of the uniqueness of the images she creates. Her backstage pictures at Fashion Week are such a great source of inspiration and there is just something different about her photography that makes everything she shoots worthy of an editorial.

2. Michael Dumler - @glass_stories

This account is another one of my very favorites because of the quality and subject matter of the photography. There is a great mix of everything on Glass Stories from photos at protests to street style images and travel pictures as well.

3. Adam Katz Sinding - @le21eme

This photographer captures people's faces just as well as he captures their outfits, making it one of the most interesting street style accounts on Instagram, despite Adam's bio claiming that it is "not a f***ing street style blog!" My guess is that he was trying to convey there is more to his photography than just style, which is what makes it so special.

4. Daniel Bruno Grandl - @theurbanspotter

The Urban Spotter is Instagram's answer to classic street style content. You can check out your favorite models wearing your favorite designers on this fashion filled account. Daniel's photography will not only give you outfit inspiration but major fashion week and closet envy, so scroll at your own risk.

5. Nicholas Pakradooni - @cholpak

This photographer's Instagram is full of aesthetically pleasing pictures that combine to create the perfect feed. I especially love Nicholas' images of scenery from the cold streets of New York to the sunny beaches of California.
