16 Creative & Beautiful Instagram Accounts to Follow

16 Creative & Beautiful Instagram Accounts to Follow

This post was going to be called '3 Cool Instagram Accounts to Follow' but as I was going through my list to make my selection, I just couldn't narrow it down to just 3! So instead, you're getting my current top 16 Instagram accounts (plus a special bonus one at the end) :).

Over the last few months, I've been getting increasingly hooked on Instagram and keep coming across the coolest people, brands, businesses and images. Are you on Instagram? If not, then why not consider it?? It's such a cool way of being creative online, of capturing little snippets of inspiration or creativity just in that moment and then sharing them with your followers, friends and colleagues.

I'm not saying you have to document every moment of your life, but if you are a visual person and especially if you are into photography, then I think you might really enjoy this app. I've had fun playing around with composition and of course I love the filters and effects you can add to make images more interesting and personal.

And I like the fact that you can share an image to other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. This comes in handy when you want to tag someone or add some variety to your Facebook timeline.

I must admit I'm not that prolific an Instagramer and, although I do use Instagram to promote my business, Pomegranate, I tend to use Instagram most when I'm simply out and about or to show a few 'behind the scenes' pictures. For example, at exhibitions, trade shows, pop-up events, in the park or when I see something fun or quirky that my friends and followers might enjoy. The image above for instance is from my Instagram feed over @pomegranatelive taken about an year ago on a lovely afternoon in Richmond Park.

But I have enjoyed seeing how others have really embraced this creative platform to express themselves, promote their businesses and share their personal viewpoint of the world. And there are some seriously talented and dedicated people out there who have built up some fantastic feeds!

Here are my current Top 16 which I've broken down for you into various categories (I have lots of different interests as I'm sure you do!). Here we go...and click on any of the images to be transported magically to that Instagram feed to see and enjoy more photos.
