Need travel inspiration? Follow my favorite Instagram travel photographers as they capture beautiful images of people, landscapes, and animals around the world.
Checking in on my favorite travel Instagramers has become an almost daily routine. They provide me with a little snapshot into their lives. A compact digital postcard from very different parts of the world.
There are plenty of great brand-powered accounts out there too. My favorites include Lonely Planet, GoPro, National Geographic, and Arc’teryx. However for this breakdown I wanted to feature personal ones.
Keep in mind my list here is completely subjective. Some of these accounts are more personality driven, while others create a steady stream of incredible & diverse travel images from across the planet.
Check em’ out, and get inspired by some amazing travel photos!

Yeah, that’s me! Before I share my favorite Instagram travel photographers, I wanted to introduce you to my account first. Shameless self-promotion.
Do you love epic landscapes & adventure photography?
Well you’ll love my account! I’ve been traveling full-time for the past 5 years — doing things like hitchhiking across the United States, scuba diving around the world, trekking remote mountain ranges, photographing northern lights in the arctic, and more.
