101 Adventure Photographers To Watch

08 April 2018

A look into the world of Instagram that allows photographers both amateur and professional, to showcase their incredible work to the world.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” Jawaharlal Nehru

For many of us who dwell in the city, bound by an office, gazing out of the window into the distance, so full of promise and adventure- Instagram is an escape. We look to these mesmerising images, captured with love, care and meticulous precision by these talented folks and we can be momentarily anywhere in the world. We are inspired to travel, to seek, to explore, leave no stone unturned. From awe-inspiring vistas and landscapes, unencumbered wildlife, the perfect moment of a powder turn or riding the pipe to exploring world heritage sights, adventure photography comes in so many forms.

With this in mind, your friends at Thrillism wanted to celebrate these amazing people, from only a few thousand followers to those who boast the elusive blue tick. No matter your background, we see this talent and have the desire to share it with you, adventures. Without further ado, let's jump straight in.

Nature & Humanity Adventure Photographers

1.) John Åkerblom @johneakerblom

John’s imaginative use of colour, imagery and the elements makes for a formidable combination. With dark and melancholy tones used against pops of brights, Johns profile is very easy on the eye. He is talented and has an exciting future in Nature photography ahead, there is no doubt about that, particularly when you see his underwater pieces!

2.) Arvil Kennan @seeingsoftly

Experience the natural beauty of everyday life in the outdoors of Ireland. Avril depicts a charming and enviable life in the wonderful countryside with her family. This lady has some serious photography skills, playing with a mixture of landscapes and light to show a real variety of shots.

3.) Clay Mitchell @_claymitchell_

Clay is incredibly talented. His modest 950 followers don't reflect his possibility. In a way, it reaffirms his love of the cause and not the recognition on social media. Working as a contributor at Sherpa Cinema, Clay helps us see the pass less travelled through the eyes of a native. Dark, sometimes ominous, other times happy and bright, a whole spectrum of emotion is invoked by his work.

4.) Jana @Alohaa_jana

Jana is the epitome of fancy-free and laid back effortless cool. With cool hues of white and grey, she takes us on a journey through some of the globes most beautiful spots. From city to beach, Jana has an approachable charm that locks you in as a dedicated follower.

5.) Anton Bengtsson @antwenture

Anton is Scandi cool. His own brand of minimalistic, raw photography is something to be revered. We are so stoked to be following Anton as he travels around his native Sweden, around the Nordic lands and beyond, capturing the raw unwavering landscape, local wildlife and people. A real find, he has a very recognisable style that we adore.

6.) Beth Wald @bethjwald

Beth is truly amazing. In every way, we can't say enough good things about her work. Her Instagram is only a small example of her portfolio but she has helped us see people, landscapes and animals like we have never seen them before. We were balled over by her work in Kyrgyzstan and since we can't stop watching. 3 Sentences simply aren't enough for Beth!

7.) Bnar sardar @Bnar.sardar

Photojournalist, Bnar is getting to the centre of the subject in just one shot. We see the passion and life jump from the image, every facial line, every shade and the way the surroundings affect the image. We were particularly moved by her image of “A man from Hawramany Takht in Irani Kurdistan".

8.) Bridget Smith @BridgetmarieSmith

Jumping between Alaska and Washington, followed closely by her absolutely adorable pooch, who features heavily in her work, we are charmed by Bridget. Her dark but happy images of her friends and the amazing nature of wild America has us hooked on her feed.

9.) Daniel Rönnbäck @DanielRonnback

If a variation is what you are after then Daniel is the guy for you. From the barren deserts of Morocco to the snow lavished peaks of Chamonix then across the globe to British Columbia, Daniel is a formidable force to be reckoned with when armed with a camera.

10.) Maura Elliot Murray @earth_xplorer

We are trying not to include peoples bios but Mauro's was too impressive not too”Geologist | Glaciologist | Mountaineer | National Geographic Contributor | World Traveller | Photographer and Writer |” with a resume like that, it's no wonder Mauro is able to capture some unique and inspiring raw nature. Amazing feed.

11.) Erin Sullivan @erinoutdoors

There are few words that truly encapsulate how amazing, strong, capable and talented Erin is. Her feed and her whole portfolio of work is something to be savoured, not skimmed over but instead grab a cup of tea and study her images. From tribespeople, wildlife and nature like you have never seen it, Erin is also a sweet, kind and wonderful person to boot, her stories demonstrate just that.

12.) Jacob Nordin @jacobnordin

Jacob has been a firm favourite of ours for a while now as we certainly looking forward to seeing his new works posted. Another incredible talent flying the flag for the Nordic countries, we see Sweden, Denmark & beyond, shown in the charming yet eerie way that keeps us hooked. Beautiful imagery and great use of light.

13.) Jenny Levin @Jennylevin

Jenny embodies the delicate, uninhibited and raw beauty of nature. As the snow falls, the clouds descend and the grey hue of the sky overshadows the land, Jenny comes into her own. We are charmed by her personality and her work and a few sentences certainly aren't enough!

14.) Joe Shelly @Joeshellyy

Boasting a travel hit lists that would make any adventurer drool, Joe has us captivated. His use of green, blue and brown as it envelopes the landscape is really amazing. The colours are vivid and yet somehow gentle and easy on the eye. You can see the nature, the landscape, the hills and the water and transport yourself.

15.) Kira @kirxxi

We can appreciate unique images but of course, there is something so special about an Instagram feed that works so well as a collective. The images blend together yet you see the individuality of the nature of Indonesia to her Native Germany work fluidly together.

16.) Laura Lawson @lauralawsonvisconti

Laura is another example of how much love care and affection has gone into her work and how to works so well as a collective. The images of nature are embracing and warm with an eclectic mix of wooden browns, deep greens and ice blue snow. She website is also not to be missed! The link is in her bio.

17.) Angie @mapandpack

Sometimes we wonder how some people gain popularity on IG with a feed that descends into the saturated ozone on the site then wonder how people who have such a natural talent such as Angie don't have more notoriety.  Her images are cheerful, warm and charming, with light and delicate colours, we feel instantly intrigued by her and her subject matter.

18.) Matteo Righi @matteorighiphotography

Matteo is a force to be reckoned with. Discovered years ago before he hit the big time, we have followed his career with avid interest. From our already deep love of Lake Garda and the surrounding area, it would be hard for someone to capture our memories and love for the area but Matteo has done it. The flora and fauna perfectly demonstrated, the lake and the mountains all there for you to discover.

19.) Matthew Hahnel @Matthewhahnel

Places like Banff National Park and the Faroe Islands need little help to look naturally rugged and mesmerising but if its possible to make places such as these look even more evocative then Matthew achieved it. He is giving us major wanderlust vibes, but that's the aim, through his lens we can discover new places!

20.) Mattia Bonavida @mattiabonavida

Another example of a naturally talented guy who has a huge task to capture our memories of Lake Garda is all their glory. Mattia smashed our expectations. Italy doesn't need much assistance in educating people of its natural beauty but Mattia has taken the task to heart, to demonstrate just how special his native Italy really is. From city to mountains see Italy through his passionate eye.

21.) Katie Purling @mycolourfulworld_

Katie is particularly adept at photographing the beach in her home of Australia, of course with images of perfect sandy beaches comes the local wildlife, the culture and lifestyle shots. Although we are sure Katie doesn't spend every day at the beach, we like to imagine ourselves living the simple life by the ocean and her clean but wishful images help us imagine.

22.) Mohit Pawar @nomad_mohit

Exploring the path less travelled in every way, not only is Mohit breaking boundaries and showcasing is unwavering talent, he helps us see people and nature that we have simply never seen before. Unique and mysterious, Mohit is one to watch!

30.)Ellis O'Connor @Ellisoconnor
