When people think of insanely beautiful travel photography, they tend to think of big National Geographic photographers, capturing the glaciers of Iceland and the deserts of Namibia. But as the following photographers know, America has just as much diversity and stunning scenery worthy of capture. In true 2018 fashion, the way these photographers share their work is no longer just in gallery shows or coffee-table books, but in the biggest platform an artist can use today: Instagram.

Travis Burke

Travis Burke and his girlfriend live in a van and travel around the United States. They snap incredible images, like diving with schools of fish in Hawaii on Earth Day, and rock formations in the Moab Desert comprised of a symphony of colors. Follow along with @travisburkephotography.

Chris Burkard

California-based photographer Chris Burkard’s first love is surfing, but killer waves aren’t the only thing he captures with breathtaking elan for his three million Instagram fans. From national parks to Alaskan glaciers, Burkard has captured it all. See his work at @chrisburkard.

Alex Strohl

Alex Strohl may live in Montana, but he doesn’t limit the range of his camera lens to his home state. Strohl travels all over the country, snapping pictures in enviable locations. Among his recent subjects: red rock formations in the Utah desert and a riot of Hawaiian greenery against clear blue waters. Follow along at @alexstrohl.

Dylan Furst

Photographer Dylan Furst uses his home base of Washington to explore the surrounding Pacific Northwest in all its majesty. His photographs have a moody, otherworldly quality – a scroll through his feed is instantly transportive, soothing, and evocative. Take a look at @fursty.

Scott Kranz

Minnesota-born, Seattle-based Scott Kranz seems to have a magical ability to be at just the right place at just the right time. The resulting images seem like something out of a dream right before you wake up, a majestic second you want to hold onto forever but can’t – unless, like Kranz, you have a camera. Follow along with @scott_kranz.

Tiffany Nguyen

Los Angeles-based Tiffany Nguyen’s day job is as a dentist, but you wouldn’t know if from her exquisite shots of everything from the Eastern Sierra Mountains to the electric sunsets beyond the pier of Manhattan Beach, California. Follow along at @tiffnguyen.

Anna Eehrgott

Anna Eehrgott is a surfer, but the sea is not all she documents in her dreamy, film-set-esque shots from around the U.S.A. From California to Maine, her photos will inspire you to stop and see the beauty in the small moments. Join her other fans at @annaehrgott.
