Just make sure you tag your Sony photos with #SonyAlpha and follow @sonyalpha.

Abel Perez – @abel.psd

Abel is a member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective and his otherworldly style of photography makes his account a fun one to follow. He utilizes interesting angles and light to create cityscapes and portraits that seriously look like they’re from the future. The photo below he recently posted as a throwback to his trip to Spain with the Alpha Collective (#AICdoesSpain). It was taken with the Sony α7R III.

Mallory – @hello_mallory

Take one look at Mallory’s account and #BeAlpha immediately comes to mind. Based in Colorado, her photos capture the scenery while she traverses beautiful mountains and forests. You won’t believe the breathtaking landscapes she’s encountered, but thanks to her Sony α7 III she’s able to share them with the world in all of their glory. Check out her account and be sure to follow along on her next adventure.

They’re always taken in some of the most beautiful and interesting places, with mesmerizing scenery and lighting. Thailand, Iceland, Singapore, Myanmar...these are just a few of the places he’s traveled to and captured. Give him a follow for more fun travel photos that will make you ready to start planning your next trip!
