Instagram long ago moved beyond being simply a home for selfies. Tens of thousands of ‘grammers have leveraged the platform to artfully create well-curated showcases of where they live. Here are some of our favorite DC Instagrammers who we check out every day.
1. @mattmanfield / Matt Mansfield
Matt Mansfield is an SVP and CIO at CQ Roll Call but when he’s not leading innovation and strategy he’s capturing stunning photos of the District.
2. @adrienradford / Adrien Radford
If you live in DC you know there’s beauty beyond the Mall. That’s where Instagrammers like Adrien Radford come in. Radford snaps pics all over the District with a heavy focus on our historic housing.
3. @h.i.o / Halil Oz
h.i.o. is constantly on the go. In his feed, you’ll find plenty of striking images from inside the beltway but you’ll just as often see stunning rural images from outside the beltway.
4. @zeynepsens / Zeynep Senyuz
Economist Zeynup Senyuz has an eye for colors that pop whether it’s fall arriving at Arington National Bridge or the berries accentuating her acai bowl.
5. tyler.sells_ / Tyler Bryant Sells
Tyler Bryant Sells is an architect by day, so it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that his Instagram feed is full of images capturing details on commonly photographed landmarks that the average person might overlook.
llkoolwhip’s primary focus is capturing the everyday people who live and work in the District.
If you need to work up an appetite look no farther than this Instagram feed. This foodie duo snap photogenic meals in DC and Baltimore (and beyond).
8. @lgomez66 / Luis Gomez
Luis Gomez has been shooting photos for nearly 25 years and that experience shines on his Instagram feed. Unafraid to try off-centered angles, Gomez will often bring new life to over photographed subjects.
9. @someguy / Andy Feliciotti
Andy Feliciotti is DC-based but spends a significant amount of road tripping so he can bring us gorgeous photos from around the country. Thankfully, because DC is in his backyard we benefit from his talent more than most.
