Instagram isn’t just an app for posting selfies and drinks from that cute new brunch spot.
You can network as a photographer and follow other photographers to follow their work.
Last year, I wrote a post covering five photographers to follow on Instagram.
I’m revisiting this topic with a new list of lesser-known, incredibly talented artists.
Here are a few photographers worth following on Instagram in 2019.
Simone Bramante (@brahmino)
Simone Bramante’s work is unique. He produces a series of images that tell a story, while promoting a product as a commercial photographer. His assignments take him all over the world, from Morocco to Hong Kong.
Humans of New York (@humansofny)
Brandon Stanton’s photography project was launched in 2010. It’s rapidly grown in popularity.
Stanton photographs New Yorkers and includes a detailed caption that tells a little about the subject’s story.
Angeliki Jackson (@astrodub)
Angeliki Jackson is a New York-based graphic designer who also boasts a strong street photography portfolio. She has an excellent eye for color and composition.
Brooke DiDonato (@brookedidonato)
Brooke DiDonato has the rare talent of turning something mundane and ordinary into a surreal piece of art.
Her creative ideas — combined with perfect compositions and flawless editing — makes for beautiful images that you can’t help but enjoy for extended periods of time.
Paul Nicklen (@paulnicklen)
If you like animals and nature photography, Paul Nicklen is a great follow. As a contributing photographer to National Geographic and a marine biologist, Nicklen’s work focuses on aquatic life.
