Instagram is the heaven for the photographers. Unlike other social media platforms, it focuses on your media contributions rather than blog promotions and text updates. The photo-sharing site is the best place to showcase your photographic talents and market yourself in the digital world.
Facebook-owned Instagram has more than 800 million monthly active users at this moment. Several photographers and photography enthusiasts use the application effectively and gain millions of followers. They frequently travel, make experiments and create stunning life stories to inspire the photographer in you.

7. Paul Nicklen: National Geographic photographer and co-founder of Sea_Legacy, a non-profit organization dedicated for the ocean and environment protection.
While in the Arctic with the @Sea_Legacy expedition crew a few months ago, @CristinaMittermeier and I documented a starving polar bear roaming through an abandoned Inuit camp along the shores of Baffin Island. A noted bear biologist could not pinpoint exactly what had caused this bear to starve to death. We do know that he didn’t have any visible wounds and that he was not old. At one time, this bear would have been a big healthy male, like the beautiful bear pictured here. Many of you asked if we could have saved the starving bear or euthanized him to ease his pain. Thank you for all your engagement and for caring about these bears as much as I do. The truth—which is hard to hear—is that he was on his last legs. His muscles had atrophied beyond repair. Plus, it would have been highly illegal to feed him or approach him. Obviously, we could not euthanize him, for legal, cultural and personal reasons. Instead of becoming angry or hopeless, we must work harder for solutions. There is hope for the remaining population of 25,000 polar bears. It’s up to all of us to change our habits if we want to see results.
