Instagram

Are you on Instagram? If by chance you're not familiar with it, it's a social media site that is specifically for posting photos and videos and the posting can only be done from your phone. As a dog photographer, I started an Instagram account shortly after I started BARKography. You can check out my @barkography account here.

I really like Instagram. I follow other accounts. I enjoy looking at their photos and reading their captions. Other accounts follow me. I feel like I've gotten to know some of them even though we've never met. I actually have met a few of them. A couple of local Charlotte people and a few others across the US and Canada when I've traveled.

If you're on Instagram, I thought it'd be fun to mention some of my favorite accounts. Of course I follow a lot of dog photographers and a lot of dog accounts. YES, people create accounts for their dogs. If I'm being honest, I never know if I should comment as if I'm talking to the dog... I suppose I am supposed to do that but I usually don't.

I'd love to know some of your favorite accounts too.

One comment that I got from a florist that I'll always remember is how happy she is to always see my dog photos. She commented that she mainly follows wedding photographers, other florists, and other businesses that support weddings so she loves seeing the dog photos I post. That made me feel good.

So without further ado, here are a few of the accounts I enjoy seeing:

Viking the Lab - I don't know his story. I know he is rescued. I'm not sure why he is cross-eyed but his posts bring a smile to my face every time I see them. I laugh a lot at his posts too.

Nemocrr - Nemo the curly coated retriever is quite the joke teller. He's pretty amazing.

Dancers and Dogs - This one is amazing. I hope I have this right: 2 photographers out of St. Louis that were mainly dance photographers came up with the idea of adding dogs. Here is a link to their website and a behind the scenes photo of what they do. 

For someone who often suffers from wanderlust, I follow a few accounts that feed my soul. Accounts such as:   Wild Coast Adventures and My Banff.

Do you have Instagram accounts you always love seeing? Which ones are they?
