Traveling photographer who uses a Fox rag doll in every photo to show you places of great beauty. Visit the shores of Florida or the streets of Italy, and get your inspiration for your next travel.


This is an interesting example of how you can make your photographs interesting by adding something as simple as another object in the frame.

Without the rag doll in every photo, this artist wouldn’t be any different from tons of others who chose to capture a couple of frames in every city they visit.

The catch is to stick to one thing and put all your efforts into perfecting it. This way you create a brand of your own and give your followers something to come back to every day.

This guy knows what photography is all about. And if you think that architecture can’t be as interesting as anything else you’re wrong.

The beauty in his art hides behind his ability to capture something as mundane as a building of no particular quality regarding architecture, and present it as a piece of art.

This is usually done by adjusting the lighting, effects, frames and manipulating the color in every picture that you’re about to post.


If truly consider yourself to be a photograph enthusiast, you might as well start following some of these profiles (if not all of them) and see how it improves your skills and motivates you to achieve greater things.

Remember to spend a decent amount of time on editing your every post and photo, before you post it. Your followers should be able to rely on your work and get the same quality of every post that your share online.
