Even though things are changing, Instagram continues to surge as today’s premiere social media network, having surpassed 400 million users in late September 2015. Of course, your feed is only as good as who you follow, so a strong set of accounts is paramount in getting the most out of Instagram. Whether you’re looking for inspiration or just a bit of eye candy, IG is packed with incredible imagery from all over the world.
Continuing our 5 Instagram Accounts to Follow this Week feature, Highsnobiety’s Will Nichols, Pete Williams and NIK chose another five of their favorite personalities on Instagram. Be it portraits, landscapes, architecture or fashion, each of these accounts share amazing photos on a regular basis, so you’re sure to find someone new to keep your feed interesting.

Follows: @insighting keeps me inspired and it’s amazing that I get to watch the process of his pure work. He is my traveling partner. The person who wakes me up at 5am to catch the best sunrises wherever we may be.
Favorite places to shoot: It’s hard to choose my favourite places but I’d say I’ve really liked San Francisco because of its nature feel everywhere I went. Also, I really loved London for their architecture and amazing train stations.
Footwear of choice: Right now my favourite pair is my lightweight Nike AF1 Ultra Flyknits.

Follows: @lejonhjerta for their hypnotic videos and other-worldly beauty, but mostly because I want to be their friend.
Also s/o to @sooooo_official because I’m very interested in mouths.
Favorite places to shoot: Any desert or Mediterranean landscape. I’m drawn to things that look the least like home (Toronto). I love the architecture and plants in the desert & the Mediterranean. Plus the light in the desert makes it feel like another planet.
Footwear of choice: All white Superstars.

Follows: @thismintymoment Minh T’s work is phenomenal and inspiring. The way he can bring simplistic moments/spaces to life is incredible. Minh has a distinctive style that evokes a magnitude of emotion.
Favorite places to shoot: Hawaii. It’s truly paradise. Not because it’s a great vacation spot, but because it’s home – where I grew up. I’m always blown away by the breathtaking landscapes even though I’ve explored it many times.
Footwear of choice: Nike Flyknit Racers.
@nikahigashionna / Followers: 16.7k/ Joined: May 2013
Follows: @alleyttle & @marcjoshveloso
Favorite places to shoot: It’s really hard to choose one place that I go to every now and then. I always explore and see new places that I like.
Footwear of choice: I’m going to go with the Y-3 triple black Qasa Highs. It’s simple but really has good detailing up close. I also love how it goes good with anything for me.
@jerm_cohen / Followers: 139k / Joined: Freshmen year of college, Winter 2010
Follows: @oddkidout – I dig the way he lays down beats in a 15 second clip.
Favorite places to shoot: I’m predicting that it will be New Zealand; traveling there next month.
Footwear of choice: Crocs, Vans Old Skool
