It’s no secret that growing an Instagram account is hard work. Whether it’s posting great content, engaging with others, utilizing IG stories and writing thoughtful captions, building a following online can be a long and sometimes tedious process. But there is one way to quickly put your content in front of brand new eyes while also growing your followers.
Feature accounts exist across all niches of photography, many with hundreds of thousands of followers. One of the easiest ways to get featured on these large pages is to include their branded hashtags and tagging their profile in your photos. Not only can a feature on one of these pages quickly build followers, there’s also the chance that another feature page will see your photo and repost it on their own account as well. From adventure pages to portraits and wedding inspiration, here are our favorite feature pages for photography:
Feature Page: @portraitfeed
While some feature portrait accounts have millions of followers, it can also be difficult to find your photo among so many hashtags under those pages. @portraitfeed is the perfect balance of awesome imagery and a great community of photographers with its 27,000 followers. You’ll find unique portraits along with a healthy dose of creativity. Want to be featured on @portraitfeed? Tag your images and use the hashtag #PortraitFeed.
Feature Page: @relax_youreincali
With more than 18,000 followers, @relax_youreincali is definitely one of the most consistent feature accounts for California. Managed by Hub member Jacob Barrera, new posts are uploaded almost daily for major inspiration featuring the best spots in the Golden State. If you’d like to be featured on their page, use the hashtag #RelaxYoureInCali. Not located in California? Do a quick search on Instagram using your state or even city name, or check to see if your tourism board features photos on their account as well to tag.
Feature Page: @ourplanetdaily
From stunning landscape photos to some of the most amazing drone images, @ourplanetdaily shares posts from all around the world.
