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, meaning a strong set of accounts is paramount in getting the most out of Instagram. Whether you’re looking for inspiration or simply eye candy, IG is packed with incredible imagery from all over the world.

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: @nick_annacone. Nick’s a good friend, and a super talented photographer. His account is really diverse, and does such great job documenting all of the cool stuff that Kith has on the go. Living in Canada and working with the Kith team, his photos makes me feel a bit less disconnected from the squad.
Favorite Place to Shoot: My kitchen. I’m a homebody and far from a photographer, so I’m usually just taking photos of shoes or the dogs. The kitchen has a lot of natural light and lots of wood, which usually makes for a decent sneaker photo.
Footwear of Choice: I have a lot of sneakers, but more times than not I end up in Air Force 1s, Superstars or New Balance 998s. More recently, the adidas Ultra Boost, the Nike ACG Lupinek Flyknit boot and the Ronnie Fieg adidas Tubular Dooms have been finding their way into the regular rotation as well.

Follows: @ESTEEVEEN - gorgeous portrait and lifestyle work on his page
Favorite Place to Shoot: Greenhouses, allows for natural light and plenty of plants and nature to use as framing for subjects. Or anywhere outdoor with good light.
Footwear of Choice: Jordan 1s, currently rotating on the SB Lance Mountains and Low Shadows.
@wicvh / Followers: 76.7K / Joined: When I was 20 (I'm 23 now.)
Follows: One of my all time favorite people to follow on Instagram is @takubeats his music, style, and how he views love is literally so beautiful to me. You can just tell he's passionate about what he does in life, and his branding for every movement he's started is so dope and clean (@team_cozy, @createexplore, and @westonbarbers)
Favorite Place to Shoot: My fire escape outside my bedroom window. It has a really dope view of downtown Los Angeles (if you look to the right) and if you look to the left its a great view of Hollywood.
Footwear of Choice: Air Jordan black and gold retro's. I've had them since the 7th grade and they've still managed to fit my feet till this day. The 1's are the only Jordans I will ever wear.

Follows: One account is tough. I’ve been a fan of what @TheMostFamousArtist is doing as of late. He curates a nice feed of relevant art. Also gotta check my boy @Stuis.Vuitton on the daily. His page is a constant reminder to celebrate success.
Favorite Place to Shoot: The current aesthetic of my art is best represented in a city like Berlin. I appreciate the contrast from the rich architectural history while having a new artistic layer gifted by street artists. Also always love shooting in the Canadian Rockies. Shoutout to Banff, Alberta..
Footwear of Choice: Gotta go with black or white Jordan 1’s. Maybe even 1 of each.
@vincedesantiago / Followers: 10.1K / Joined: 2011 - Back when IG had that dope Apollo filter.
Follows: @theonlygoodalex - Not only is he a pleasure to shoot with but he slays on the regular and always pushes me to be better and try new things.
Favorite Place to Shoot: West Loop in Chicago has so much to offer. There’s an amazing mix of new and old architecture along with the south branch of the Chicago River and the always present unique characters walking around.
Footwear of Choice: Vans Authentic Black on Black.
