Pedro Lopez, or @pdromi_fotografia on Instagram, is a portrait photographer based in Chile. From what I understand, Lopez’s model is not a professional and makes this photo all the better. I love the treatment in the image that makes it seem like this man is a lead actor of a hit TV show or movie. Between the location, lighting, pose, wardrobe, camera work, and post-processing, it all comes together with class.

Dilyana Hezhaz, found on Instagram as @dilyana.hezhaz, is a portrait photographer based in Bulgaria. Hezhaz began shooting three years ago said she enjoys “DIY studio experiments with as little props as possible” to showcase her portrait subjects. She photographs alongside her husband as ND Photography, to which she said, “we’re both each other’s biggest critics and supporters.”

Jim Rocks is a landscape photographer based in Cork, Ireland and can be found on Instagram simply as @jimrocks. “This particular image was taken early morning whilst driving the winding roads of the Caha Pass in West Cork,” Rocks told PetaPixel through email. “This particular morning the mist was sweeping across the vista in the valley below offering a gorgeous scene that just had to be captured.”

Ken Helal, on Instagram as @kenhelal, considers himself a serious photography hobbyist. “Osprey are my favorite bird as little can match the rush one experiences once they exit the water with their catch,” he said. “In this image, the osprey captured its desired target as well as a little extra.”

Gergo Rugli is a Sydney-based ocean photographer and can be seen on Instagram as @rugligeri. Rugli told PetaPixel that he was born in Hungary and moved to Australia seven years ago where ocean photography became his main passion.

Marcus De La Haye, or @marcusdelahayephotography on Instagram, is a 24-year-old amateur underwater photographer from Jersey, United Kingdom. De La Haye’s work is a must-follow for anyone interested in underwater photography as the varied body of images are sure to inspire.
