What do the most popular photographers’ Instagram accounts have in common?


For a photographer, following colleagues who are references for him or simply who like the way they work is, without a doubt, a great source of inspiration. That’s why today we want to show you some of the Instagram accounts of Arcadina photographers with the most followers at the moment.

But before we share this popular list with you, let’s see what all these Instagram accounts have in common that makes them gain more and more followers every day.

  • Impact: as you will see, if there is one thing that all the photographers’ accounts that we are going to present to you today have in common, it is undoubtedly the effect that their photographs generate. They are images that do not leave users indifferent and make them stop and look at them in a world, this Instagram world, in which everything happens in a matter of seconds.

  • Frequency: another quality of these accounts is that photographers upload content from time to time. If you want to maintain and increase the number of people following your account, it is important that you share quality content every so often.

  • Quality: a moment ago we talked about impact and now we emphasise quality. Not everything goes in the networks. If you upload high impact photos and these are mixed with lower quality images, the former will lose some of their strength. Just as we recommend in the galleries on the web, make a selection of your best photographs in your networks.

There are many more aspects that you can take into account when it comes to increasing your followers, but if you start by reviewing your images with these 3 qualities in mind, you will see how your followers will gradually increase.

How do you know which Instagram accounts to reference?


When deciding which photographers’ Instagram accounts are worth following, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions, because while it’s all well and good to “follow everyone”, if you do, the posts of your referrers will get lost among the rest of the posts that won’t do you any good.

These are some of the criteria you can take into account when following photographers’ accounts on Instagram.

  • Top photographers in the world of photography: these accounts have to be an essential part of your followers. There are certain photographers, such as @stevemccurryofficial, @muradosmann, @amivitale or @niravphotography that you have to follow, no matter what specialisation you have. We know that their photographs will not leave you indifferent and even if they do not work with a style close to yours, they will serve as a source of inspiration.

  • Instagram accounts of leading photographers in your speciality: you should also follow this group of photographers, although we imagine you are already doing it. Seeing what kind of posts are made by photographers you admire and who work in your speciality is a very quick way to have a “guide” of the photos and posts that work best in networks. As always, we don’t want to encourage plagiarism, but you can be inspired by the content you see most liked by their followers.

  • Photographs from other disciplines: as we always say, it’s great to follow photographers who are role models within your style, but sometimes, if for example, you are a wedding photographer, taking a look at colleagues who are dedicated to architectural photography, will give you many ideas to apply in your next reports.
