15 incredible photographers to discover on Instagram

World Photo Day takes place on 19 August every year, to celebrate not  only the magical beauty of photography, but to mark the day in 1839 when The French Academy of Sciences revealed the daguerreotype - the first ever ‘practical’ photography process that was free to the world.

Snapping pictures has come a long way since - Facebook reports that two billion images are shared through its services per day, while estimates put the number of digital images taken each day around the world at a whopping 350 billion.

Instagram meanwhile, is fast taking over as the most popular social media platform for creatives with a community now brimming with over 500 million professional and amateur photographers sharing their windows to the world daily.

So to celebrate World Photo Day 2016, we’ve pulled 10 incredible photographers from the ocean of Instagram’s inspirational snappers, who until now, may have flown below your radar.
