Jesse | J.AlanPaul – @j.alan.paul
Jesse is a Sony shooter and his Instagram account features colorful landscapes, astroscapes, cityscapes and portraits. He had so many fantastic tree photos posted that it was difficult to choose just one for this article – but we opted for this beauty that he took at Sony Kando Trip 3.0 with the Sony α7 III and Sony 24-105mm f/4 G lens. A few of his words about #SonyKandoTrip: “I've finally met a lot of inspirational photographers that I've followed ever since I switched to @sonyalpha and became part of the #BeAlpha family.” Check out his profile for more.
Beth Mancuso – @intothewild.wego
Beth’s Instagram handle couldn’t be more fitting. With one scroll through her profile it becomes apparent just how often she goes out into the wild – and it’s a lot. She posts awe-inspiring landscapes from various National Parks and other beautiful places. Another account where it was hard to choose just one impressive tree photo because they’re all top-notch, we went with the one below taken with her Sony α7 III. Give her a follow for more of nature’s beauty in your feed.
Eric Ruth – @eric_ruth_less
Sony photographer Eric Ruth’s account highlights the vibrant colors of the sunsets in Southern California, where he’s based. Add in the contrast of the palm trees against those skies and you can practically feel the sea breeze through your phone’s screen. He captures it all with a Sony α7 II – give him a follow for more palms and paradise.
Andy Witteman – @cnlastro
Andy’s Instagram bio says that he’s “Chasing Northern Lights,” and judging by all of the photos he’s posted, he’s caught them more than a few times. His entire account boasts photos of the Northern Lights from different perspectives that he takes using his Sony α7S. We love the perspective and the trees in the photo he took below in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Keith Wallach – @keithw3
Keith is a landscape photographer and he’s captured some truly beautiful scenery throughout his adventures in nature. Mountains, wildlife, rivers and of course trees are all subjects of his photography on Instagram. He captured this dreamy shot at Mirror Lake Trail in Yosemite National Park using his Sony α7R II and Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master lens.
