Follows: @shot_by_ian. His work speaks for itself. I also like how he incorporates skateboarding into his feed, since I discovered photography through skating.
Favorite Place to Shoot: NYC has been my favorite place so far. I explored around 20 hours per day when I visited there. Never a dull moment.
Footwear of Choice: Nike Lunar Air Force 1 Duckboot – great for winter.

Follows: One of my favorite Instagram accounts that I currently follow would be @bshigeta. I like the fact this user is always on the go, snapping pics from various locations from around the globe. I find that very inspiring. Along with that, this user is also always testing out new camera gear which furthers my camera knowledge with a simple follow.
Favorite Place to Shoot: Ideally I like to shoot anywhere with natural lighting. Since I like having a subject when I shoot I feel natural lighting shows the best details and highlights on that subject.
Footwear of Choice: You can usually catch me in a pair of New Balance 998s. Very comfortable sneaker and the design is also sleek.

Follows: My love of light and my nostalgia for Hong Kong forces me to say @edwardkb.
Favorite Place to Shoot: Large Asian cities. The chaos, architecture, markets, vibes and unique visual identities of each place are extremely stimulating and inspiring; Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Phnom Penh or any other.
Footwear of Choice: Winter camping slippers: hot and cozy, plus they look like astronaut boots.
@meghanyuriyoung / Followers: 6.5K / Joined: 2011
Follows: It’s hard to narrow down since there are a number of feeds that inspire me in different ways, but I currently can’t get enough of @theresbianca. The quiet confidence of her aesthetic and the creativity of her subject matter constantly motivate me to reconsider my own shots.
Favorite Place to Shoot: Anywhere new to be completely honest. An explorer at heart, I’m not one to take shots in the same place twice. But give me a natural landscape over a concrete one any time.
Footwear of Choice: Nike Roshe for walking, Nike LunarGlide 7 for running.
