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.

Continuing our 5 Instagram Accounts to Follow this Week feature, Highsnobiety’s Will Nichols and Pete Williams 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.

Read on for our latest picks.

Follows: @shainblumphotography - Michael Shainblum is an insane visualist and creator in such a way which makes him unique using his own techniques which brings a lot of depth into his photography. He is my #1 inspiration in photography.

Favorite Place to Shoot: I don't really have one favorite location to shoot because I strive to expand my photography and try to put myself into different locations and environments as much as I can. Locally my most shot location would be Bombo Quarry.

Footwear of Choice: Vans Old Skool, as seen in a ton of my shots.

@seabstn / Followers: 1,415 / Joined: 2013 Sometime in 2013

Follows: One of my favourite accounts would have to be @othellogrey. His originality and distinct style is truly something else. The fact that every photo can resonate differently with me and bring with it a multitude of emotion is truly incredible.

Favorite Place to Shoot: I’m always looking for new locations, be it in my own neighborhood or on my travels. I primarily look for: minimalist architecture, symmetry, clean lines, shadows and natural light. At the end of the day my goal is to capture a moment so really any setting that will allow me to do so.

Footwear of Choice: Right now probably my Converse Chuck Taylor Suede Zip Hi’s.

@geneticboi / Followers: 15.5K / Joined: Spring 2013

Follows: My favorites are @MattCBauer / @LusttForLife @AFARmedia / @KDKuiper / @OrchidMag

Favorite Place to Shoot: Anywhere spacious — beautiful clean architectures, or stretches of ocean and desert. The roaring coast line of California, white sands national monument in New Mexico, and the wildness of Iceland.

Footwear of Choice: Common Projects achilles; a nice blend of casual and formal. I call them dress-sneakers.

@missgallo / Followers: 5,931 / Joined: When it started

Follows: Currently it's @FrenchByDesign and @CraftAndCouture. Both feeds reflect refined simplicity and modern elegance.

Favorite Place to Shoot: All over the world. I really enjoy capturing moments in time that you can look back and reflect on what you were thinking or what you were feeling.

Footwear of Choice: White Converse Chuck Taylor or Nike Free Flyknit Chukka (preferably Wolf Grey, White, Pure Platinum, and Volt combo).

@karim.mustafa / Followers: 129K / Joined: About 3 years ago

Follows: @jayscale - Jamal has become like a brother to me, following him shows me how hard he works. His desire to grow as not only as a photographer but a person is all the inspiration I can ask for. For someone as young as he is its impressive how quickly he's matured into the successful man he is today.

Favorite Place to Shoot: I have a soft spot for San Francisco. I love shooting in the city because I'm from NYC but nature is something I've grown to love to shoot more than anything. SF has the best of both worlds.

Footwear of Choice: Jordans/Nike of course. I won't even post a picture of adidas if they paid because I still pray for the day I work for Jordan Brand permanently. I would say "Bred" 11s are my favorite but "Space Jams" are a close second. At the end of the day a clean pair of 11s will put a huge smile on my face.
