We scoured the internet for Instagram accounts that really caught our attention and this is what we got. Some of these are big names, others are small-time, but they’re all very talented. We specifically didn’t only target well-known accounts because there’s so much out there. We looked for well-composed shots, the overall feel of their portfolio, people that seemed interesting, and frequent Instagram use. Some accounts were left out solely for covering too many subjects.

Sserkan34 – This guy is a professional nature photographer that takes some really unbelievable shots. He does landscapes, cityscapes, and more. He’s a Turkish photographer and has over 80K followers. We kind of found him on accident but we’re glad we did. He uses colors and textures really well, and much of his photography is somewhat surreal. He’s definitely someone to check out.
Appletreeroad_luke – A freelance photographer from Sydney that does some really great work. His use of contrast and juxtaposition are really interesting. A lot of his photos use soft textures that almost make the photographs look like paintings. He only has 3K followers but we’re hoping to help bump that up.
William_patino – Another Australian photographer that does some great landscape shots. His style is one that frequently appears in nature photography, including the use of slow exposure to capture motion and high color saturation. He’s at around 23K followers and growing. What’s with Australia and the nature shots? I’m looking at you Peter Lik — where’s your Instagram?
Curious2119 – This guy delivers medical supplies for a living and takes photos of rural areas as he goes. He takes photos around Wisconsin and Minnesota, for the most part. He has over 500K followers; for a delivery man he sure has a good eye for a nicely set up shot.
NASA - These may not be landscapes/cityscapes, per se, but they are really damn cool. They post everything from pictures of planets to nebulae. They, surprisingly, only have around 300K followers. It’s true what they say: We don’t support NASA anymore …
