My passion lies in adventure photography. If you give me a chance, I’ll be out in the wilderness with no questions asked. I grew up in a massive city, so the thought of exploring the outdoors has always appealed to me. Today I’m traveling Europe in search of big skies and deep lakes, and I want to inspire you to do the same.

It’s almost impossible to follow every epic account on Instagram, but I have trawled through countless profiles to bring you the best of ‘adventure photography,’ including landscape, wildlife, surf and outdoor lifestyle. If your blood runs thick with adventure, but your feed is filled with too many duck-faced teenagers, then have a look at the inspiring list below.

Authors note: I tried to keep the feature-only pages to a minimum, because there are lot out there, and most are sharing the same content. The ones that have appeared on my list are in my view the best, and are not “pay-for-features” pages, (as far as I know).

Then two outdoor explorers worth a special mention – my gorgeous girlfriend and I 😉 We try capture a mix of lifestyle and outdoor photography from our travels.
