When more than 50 million users around the world upload more than five million photos to Instagram every hour, it is safe to say the app is quite popular. And because we appreciate good photography, we wanted to share with you some of the top Instagram accounts we like right now, inspired by the scenic simplicity of nature and urbanized photography. The culture these photos express is palpable of a generation moving forward in photographic creativity. Beauty is found every where, so why not give you a glimpse to the beauty that you may have yet to experience. 

  1. Brenton_Clarke:
    His photos are inspired by the natural beauty of the Ozark Mountains found in the southern half of Missouri and northern Arkansas. Consisting of sunsets, sunrises and inspired by the geometry of nature, his photos are crisp and captivating. 
  1. Cory Richards:
    As a national geographic photographer, Cory Richard’s photos give you a glimpse of natural beauty from all over the world. Photos range from images of him rock climbing in Ukraine to close-up shots of Walruses and polar bears in Antarctica. His photos give you an amazing glimpse into a life you probably don’t experience every day.
  1. Zak Shelhamer:
    San Francisco based surfer, snowboarder, photographer and filmmaker, Zak’s photos are for the viewer inspired by the ocean. His photos are a mix of beach shots, with underwater, surf photos in addition to snapshots of his pursuits along the coast. His photos give a unique perspective on living in San Francisco and discovering its natural beauty.
  1. Jared Chambers:
    An LA based photographer, Chambers’s Instagram account is by far my favorite of the five. An eclectic, eerie mix of beautiful landscapes with intimate portraits makes each photo feel like something you want to be a part of. His use of color, geometry and precision makes his photography sharp, clean and breathtaking.
  1. Cole Rise:

    With a unique perspective and an emphasis on colors, Rise’s Instagram account will keep you entertained, yet inspired. He is also a pilot so a lot of his photos give you that perspective; it is strangely intimate, and a genuinely interesting account.
