Ah, Instagram. The land of puppy pictures, beauty tutorials, and food that’s (almost) too pretty to eat. I follow my fair share of travel photographers on there, too. What better way to get inspired for my next trip than by feasting my eyes and watching theirs unfold?!
Here are 10 of my all-time favorite accounts to follow…
Liz Carlson was quite possibly the first travel blogger that ever made me take a step back & realize that people could actually do this for a living. I follow her on basically every social media outlet that exists, and for good reason! She’s an American residing in New Zealand, and is currently on a trip in the Maldives, which is where this picture was taken. I admire this woman SO much. She’s got her camera’s self-timer down to a science. Doesn’t hurt that she’s a pretty fantastic writer, too.
I don’t even know where to begin with this guy. He’s a traveling photographer who built a camper home for he and his partner, Cleo. They’re on a road-trip across Australia together, and he spends his days surfing & taking the absolute most incredible pictures of her, each more dreamy and romantic than the next. Talk about #relationshipgoals!
I first came across Kate’s account because she’s the face of a company I design/sell jewelry for, Origami Owl. While I think we all would agree that she definitely belongs in front of the camera (she’s b e a u t i f u l), she has skills behind it as well! Most recently, she was found laying in a hammock under breezy palm trees in Cabo with her fiancé.
When I was a member of photography club in college, Ben came in as a guest speaker, and I’ve followed and admired his work ever since. He’s a fellow Floridian, so I suppose that could be making my soft spot even softer, but really, the guy’s amazing at what he does. His shots have been featured in National Geographic, for crying out loud. If you enjoy underwater wildlife photography, he is so worth a follow! Trust me on this one 🙂
What I love most about Sabina’s Instagram page is that she keeps it interesting by giving her followers a little bit of everything; landscape, food, and portraiture. Like Liz from Young Adventuress, she’s been a pretty instrumental person in kick-starting my blogging journey. Keeping up with her blog and being a member of her super-supportive, empowering Facebook group community quickly helped me realize that these talented, accomplished bloggers are twenty-somethings just like me, who’s well-traveled lives all started with a dream. Sabina’s nothing short of an inspiration.
This girl’s photography skills are enough to make anyone lust over the gorgeous destinations that she shoots. You’ll find lots of bright colors, and crisp, beautiful photographs on her page.
Catchy name, am I right?! Another ridiculously cute couple exploring the world together. Currently, they’re in China, and I’m really enjoying their landscape photography, like these lovely Jacaranda trees, lately!
Trevis doesn’t need much explanation…just take one look at his Instagram and you’ll quickly see that he is so, so, so talented. I’ll be the first to admit – I get excited when I see his username pop up on my feed!
Okay, three words to describe Nicola’s Instagram….I. can’t. even. I feel like she is the quintessential travel blogger, living a life that every girl dreams of. Her entire feed is just lovely, and each photograph is composed so beautifully.
I stumbled across Jess’s Youtube Channel a while ago and really enjoyed her daily travel videos, so I figured I’d check out her Instagram page too. Equally as amazing…no surprise there! Last week, she was busy rescuing sea turtles in Bali. I mean come on people!
