As a photographer, I find I am encouraged to shoot more by looking at the work of other talented photographers. The following is a list of the professional photographers I currently follow on Instagram.
All of these folks are members The Photo Society, a collection of nature/travel pros who shoot for National Geographic. You could cheat and just follow NatGeo or TPS, but I recommend you follow both the channels and the individuals.
I aspire to creating this sort of work, which is why I’ve created this initial list of folks. Later, I’ll follow up with a list of friends, peers and influences from other genres/subjects who also inspire me.
