Christ is more of an artist than the artists; He works in the living spirit & the living flesh, He makes men instead of statues.

Instagram

If you know me at all, you know that I love sharing moments on Instagram. I am on that app quite a bit! It's even on my dock. I'm going to share some of my favorite feeds that I follow on Instagram. These people inspire me to keep creating. (Listed in no particular order.)

Like a word, a photograph can speak to us. It can stand for something; a moment frozen in time and swollen with meaning. But — as with words — when strung together, photographs begin to tell a story
  • justn_sd  (Justin Halbert)

I've been following Justin for several years and he has definitely been one of the most consistent as far as creativity. I've had the pleasure of hanging out with Justin and he is one of the most genuine guys you will meet. More than that, he constantly amazes me with his colors and tones in his unique style. He was voted 1 of the best Instagrammers in San Diego by Thrillist which is pretty awesome! You can also check out this feature that the awesome app Mextures did with Justin.

  • kdkuiper (Kyle Kuiper)

This guy is amazing. Kyle was also voted 1 of the best Instagrammers in San Diego by Thrillist. Kyle recently went on a trip to Finland and got some amazing shots like the one to the right. He is very talented in capturing beautiful moments in beautiful color. If I'm scrolling quickly through my feed I can tell if I just passed one of Kyle's pictures because of the richness of the picture. I often get mesmerized by his photos and then wander on over to his feed to get more.

  • kylesteed (Kyle Steed)

I don't follow Kyle for his photos as much as I follow him for his constant positive outlook on life. As well as his amazing doodles. His motto "Work Hard. Trust God. Enjoy life." truly describes this guy in 6 short words. If you didn't catch lasts weeks blog post, I posted this little glimpse of an interview on Kyle. I have had the opportunity to meet Kyle and he is as authentic as that interview describes him as. God has blessed this man immensely.

  • colbyshootspeople (Colby Moore)

I've only recently started following Colby but I have been throughly impressed with his feed. I really enjoy seeing all of his adventures around the US and around the world. His photos draw you in. I find myself fooled into thinking I'm with him on some of these adventures. He really has a gift. Follow him and join me in my continuous jealous of all his awesome adventures he takes.

  • austinmann (Austin Mann)

If you've read any of my posts on this blog, you know that Austin is the mann. Literally though, he's the man. He was recently featured on Apple.com for a panorama he took in Iceland on his iPhone. You can view the behind the scenes of that shot on his blog, here. Austin has been my photography mentor since I was first introduced to him by my brother. He is a true role model to me and I've enjoyed seeing all of the projects he's involved with.

  • I've always respected Kyle Steed and his work. Check out this beautiful little glimpse into Kyle's life.
I learned a couple years ago that what I do does not define me. My work is more of a response. I work because God said it’s good for us to work, and it is. When we do good work, it’s like an act of worship that glorifies Him.
