Here at Nau we’ve developed a minor obsession with Instagram, the online photo-sharing service. What we love about it: sharing our daily adventures; and following some of our favorite photographers influencers, and everyday friends who have a phone and an excellent eye.
We figured we would spread the love and share our favorite Instagrammers. From urban ballerinas to traveling musicians, we are thoroughly entertained and often obsessed with checking our phones.
@ben_moon – Ben is a photographer based here Portland who has helped us on numerous shoots, including some of our Spring 13 location photography. His adventurous spirit shines through in the photos of all the places his work takes him.
@bowen_ames - Bowen has moonlighted as a freelance art director on some of our shoots and even transformed our own instagram with his amazing eye. Bowen’s personal instagram is worthy of a coffee-table book; just take a look into his world of weekend escapades and beautiful colors.
@edroste – As a member of one of our favorite bands, Grizzly Bear, Ed shares photos from the bands travels around the world. Forget green rooms and late night parties, he captures picturesque shots of Portugal countryside and snorkeling in Burma.
@Chrisburkard –Chris is a staff photographer for Surfer magazine. He has an eye for the behind-the-scene life of a professional surfer or an astonishing coastal shot that will make you jealous of his daily life.
@Architizer – For those inspired by design, the description says it all: “amazing architecture, served daily.” From modernist high-rises to mosques in Abu-Dhabi, these buildings aren’t seen in your daily cityscapes.
@NYtimesFashion – Sometimes we just need our fix of Balenciaga’s newest collection, or to laugh at the return of platform shoes. NY Times fashion gives us all of our guilty pleasures, and a little inspiration.
@balletzaida – Ballet Zaida is an ongoing art project showcasing ballerinas performing in environments other than the stage. Photographed by Oliver Endahl, these photos expose the world to ballet and try to evolve the art of ballet itself.
@Heartroasters – Heart takes the win for both our favorite cup of coffee, and roaster with an instagram account. Based in our hometown of Portland, the camera of Heart roasters goes behind the scenes to the fields where the coffee grows, all the way to the roaster here in Portland.
@thecolorbrown – As our guest Instagrammer for the month of February– we have to feature our friend Carson Brown. Haling from Grand Rapids, his photos take an unordinary look at everyday life. Each photo makes us pause and look a little closer.
