10 Beautiful Instagram Photographers
Instagram is the newest trend (at least after Facebook bought) for iPhone and android users, which allows users to apply a filter to photos and upload and share them across the internet. Browsing Instagram (and through the people that I follow), there are thousands of photos to view, and many, many tags to search through. Here I have created a list of my 10 favourite Instagram photographers. I have included their about me sections, three of my favourite photos by them and links to their online profiles to you can check them out! Also added is a reason as to why I like them.
*Note: Some users are now no longer active, though I have kept them here because they had some wonderful pictures! It could be they changed their username, or got a new profile.
About them: A guy with an iPhone who loves taking pics & meeting new people on IG! Hubs to @musiccityace, Dad to @kewikikidz & creator of @wilburtheant.
Why I like them: The photos are vibrant and they stand out in thumbnail views. He also holds contests and the winners are given prizes. He makes his Instagram an active profile by advertising these winners and finalists. I also like the fact he does not stick to a theme and takes photos of different and interesting objects and topics.

About them: ✝. English.
Why I like them: Many of the photos seem to use the same filter, which is interesting because the focus of the photographs aren't all the same, which changes the feelings about the photo. She appears to have a main theme with nature, being trees, grass and flowers, but also has a personal collection of images as well.
About them: I paint onstage during live music, I only post my own art. For my videos: ACRYLICGROOVE.COM
Why I like them: Although not photography, these paintings are very emotive and colourful, standing out among photos. He takes Instagram to another level and advertises his own canvas work.
About them: life, people, good food, wine, traveling, cooking, photography, art, culture, indy movies, nature, Sagittarius, Twitter: @stoepsomat --- Facebook: facebook.com/stoepsomat
Why I like them: Some of his photos are colourful, whether it be a food photograph, nature or other. He takes us through his life, showing some of the places he goes, the food he might be eating, and occasionally you'll see him. I find his photos to be relaxing.
About them: @AMPt and @IGersFinland --- tumblr: skwii.tumblr.com --- Facebook: Jussi U. --- Photography -email@example.com
Why I like them: I've only recently found this user, and I really like the almost neutral or muted tones. I find it interesting that in most of their photos there is a human figure, sometimes the focus of the photograph.
About them: JGarpemyr on Twitter
Why I like them: Her photos are bright in colour, and she must use another app for filtering effects. However, the rounded edges are unique to the user and her photographs are almost cute in style, including the picture of a sheep.

About them: The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to see. iPhone 4, Nikon D90 Kira, with <3
Why I like them: Her photos are fun! That's the main reason I follow her, but also because they are somewhat exciting, some even weird. Her dog is the star of many pictures, and you can see she has her own personality. Like stoepsomat, she takes us through parts of her life with Instagram.
About them: Designer. Photographer. Art Director. — San Francisco
Why I like them: I love photos of the cityscape, quite simply. Again, this user takes us through parts of her life with these photographs, as well as advertising herself as a proper photographer. Her photographs could easily be identified, and some of them convey great emotions, mostly joy and excited.
About them: A 156 year-old global brand with distinctly British attitude.
Why I like them: Although burberry is a global brand, they use Instagram as an advertising tool, as well as taking other photos that are not related to their products. The photos appear slightly monotone, but it adds to the mood and relates to the weather when photographed.

About them: http://aidygoena.wordpress.com
Why I like them: The photos are very sensual, and focus on homosexuality. It is rare to find photos such as these and the photographer is advertising his work through Instagram. They are bold photos for Instagram, but there is a lightness to the photographs themselves. Instagram is again being used to advertise himself as a real photographer.
*Note: Though there is no nudity in the photos, I am labelling them NSFW as they display homosexual acts.*
About me: Male, 21, Australian, Aries
Why I use Instagram: I've had Instagram for over a year, though I hardly used it at first. I use it as a documentation of my life almost, though in an almost abstract sense. I don't have a theme and I don't use one particular filter, as one filter doesn't fit with the type of feeling I want to convey in my pictures. It's also a fun app to use and to discover other artists, as well as being able to "discover the world."
