Stunning travel photography accounts on Instagram

There are so many accounts to follow on Instagram. With over 1 billion active users, that’s not too hard to imagine. So which ones to follow? In this post I listed my favorites travel photography Instagrammers. So check them out!

First of all, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram too!


Hailing from the Netherlands, this woman travels the world with a camera in her hand. From the city center of London to the deep into the Finnish woods. You can see her everywhere!


Canada is his home, but you won’t find him there too often. Constantly on the move, from Greece to Namibia, back to Ireland and then traveling around Japan. He goes everywhere. And wherever he goes, he makes awesome photos.

Don’t forget to check out his YouTube-channel too!

Going deep into the city, then back into nature for a nice long exposure shot. Back to the city, and then maybe back to nature to photography a damselfly. Alex does it all.

Amelia is one of those women you will always find out and about in nature. Whether it’s in the UK, Switzerland, or Bulgaria. If there is nature, there will be Amslebrun!

Traveling as a couple, these two go from Asia to Iceland, and back. It seems they are mainly focussed on landscapes, as even their street-photography feels like epic landscapes.


A belgian based in Portugal. In Gautier’s work you will see a lot of leading lines and ‘dead-on’ shots. Most of the shots are made in his (new) hometown Lisbon, but you can find shots of other places too. Just a reminder that your hometown can be an awesome place too!


Travel, landscape and drones. Those are the keywords that describe James’ photography. Ranging from snowy landscapes, to sunbathing ones. His travel photography mainly consists of landscape photography, but boy, does he have a wide range in photos there too.

A traveler from Latvia that ended up living in Iceland. Most of her photos are made on the beautiful island of Iceland. Nature and landscape find a nice way to combine in her photos.A great account for those Scandinavian lovers!


Alban is another fellow Antwerpian. His photography, and hyperlapses, are mostly made in Antwerp. But expect some China and other countries too. Most of his photos are city-based, which makes his profile a great source of inspiration for those citytrippers!


Taking a look at her profile and photo-captions, you won’t really learn a lot about Lernak. She makes great photography, but does it in an almost anonymous fashion. The anonimty helps with the dreamy feel her photos and entire feed have.

Looking at his profile, it looks like he’s mostly active in Asia. Benjimen seems to have a travel-photography style that is more leaning into street photography. Which makes it even more about the people living in the places, than just the people traveling there.

Breakfast doesn’t get much fresher than this. One of the most important skills to learn when backpacking is finding fresh cheap food. You might think the best place to look is a posh looking western style restaurant but these restaurants are always expensive and get less traffic which can put you at bitter risk of poisoning. Instead go where local people eat! The food may look less appetizing but it will almost always be fresh and normally’ delicious. Plus I also get to experience strange food and have fun interactions with locals. It is important to ask the price before ordering (this is only necessary in some countries). If unsure of the correct price try to wait and observe what locals pay. . . . #streetfood #eatfresh #foodlover #travelphotography #adventuretravel #streetphotography #livingthedream #seafood

Okay sure, this is a bit of your standard “Instagram girl going on citytrips’ account. But I like it nonetheless. I find the ways Meg’s able to incorporate herself in the photos very well done. I wish I was able to do it more too. But I just never think about doing it. And when I do, I never know how. So for me, this is a perfect account for inspiration!


I actually know him personally. Tjoolaard in West-Flemish means ‘wanderer’, and that’s exactly what describes Niel best. He goes anywhere and everywhere, as long as there is an adventure to go on!


In Tyler’s bio you can read ‘A photographer who can’t stay in one place for too long.’ and his feed only confirms this. From Scandinavia, to Istanbul, to some place else. It seems like he’s always on the move. Alvast making the best photos he can possibly make!
