Instagram Follow Friday – December 28, 2018

Photo by Don Smith (@don_smith_photography)

It’s time for our final Instagram Follow Friday of 2018, and we’ve chosen a group of accounts displaying the outdoors boldly and beautifully using their Sony Alpha cameras. This week we bring you two #AlphaCollective members who are always on the go, another Sony shooter giving us an inside look at island life, a family of four sharing the sights from their epic adventures and a Sony Artisan whose landscape photography will make you say, ‘Wow’! Check them out and don’t forget to follow @sonyalpha for more great photos from Sony shooters every day. Most importantly, be sure to tag your Sony photos with #BeAlpha and you could be featured one week too. We look forward to more joining the Be Alpha movement in 2019!

If you’re like us and could scroll through breathtaking landscape photos all day, you’re going to want to give Don a follow. His gorgeous shot was taken with the Sony α7R III and Sony 100-400mm lens.

Erin Sullivan – @erinoutdoors

Erin is a member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective living the Be Alpha lifestyle. Erin travels all over the place and does a wonderful job of documenting the beautiful landscapes and wildlife she comes across. The inspiring words posted with her photos lights the fire in all of us to explore more - so make sure you’re following her! This amazing capture of a bear fishing was taken on the α7R III with the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 G Master lens.

 

KoloheBoy™ Foto – @kolohephoto

Edward Taguba is the man behind the @kolohephoto Instagram account. He lives in Oahu, Hawaii and posts a variety of incredible island images for his followers to enjoy. He uses the Sony α7 III to perfectly capture the magnificent colors of the Hawaiian landscape. Often posted with a few words that remind us to slow down and enjoy, his photos have us all wishing we were living the island life!

 

Philip Nguyen – @philngyn

Phil is another member of the #AlphaCollective and he’s based in beautiful California. His account boasts the breathtaking landscapes he encounters throughout his travels. From high alpine terrain to windy deserts to urban jungles, as a travel photographer Phil gets out and explores as much as he can. His photo below was taken in Norway with the Sony α7 III.



Raspberry Adventures – @theraspberryadventures

This account follows the adventures of a family of four living in Derbyshire, England. You’ll find moody landscape images and beautiful captures of bridges and architecture as you scroll through their profile. In addition to the photos on their account (all shot with the Sony α7), they post Instagram stories so you can keep up through little snippets of their days.



Don Smith – @don_smith_photography

Don Smith is a Sony Artisan who works as a full-time professional landscape photographer and workshop teacher. If you’re like us and could scroll through breathtaking landscape photos all day, you’re going to want to give Don a follow. His eye for composing a photo in a way that conveys a message to the audience is something only a pro like him could master. This gorgeous shot below was taken with the Sony α7R III and Sony 100-400mm lens.
