Instagram has helped level the travel industry playing field. We can all go out and score evocative photos, then post them on our feeds. Still, there are a plenty of brave adventurers out there who’ve thrown off the cubicle yoke and devoted their lives to making art while traveling. They’re celebrating the world while giving us a window into all those enticing places that are over the hills and far away.
We decided to round up some of the best travel photographers on Instagram right now. We whittled a monstrous list down to thirty-five stellar sets of eyes, all of whom capture this world in a thrilling way.
DANYA SCHWERTFEGER — 5.2k Followers
Danya Schwertfeger surfs, skates, lives in a van, sews, builds, and takes photos. He’s the 21st century’s wanderlust archetype all the way down to the Rumplestiltskin-spun golden straw hair that’s mussed just enough.
Schwertfeger’s photos are glimpses into the great wild yonder. There’s a lot of surfing involved, as that’s one of his main focal points. Where Schwertfeger really shines is in the beauty of the road. While a lot of travel-related Instagram can be reduced to this one GIF, Schwertfeger doesn’t over-sexualize his subjects. Yet, he’s still able to make every shot feel sexy and adventurous.
