Insta Accounts that Give Us Major FOMO

Don't get us wrong—we love our jobs. But even we can't help but feel jealous scrolling through the feeds of Insta's top travel photographers. After all, these are people whose "job" entails jetting from one exotic locale to the next, and documenting the sheer awesomeness that is their life along the way. Here are 10 guaranteed to take your FOMO to the next level.

Lush rainforests in Panama. Golden temples in Singapore. Roadside motels in Arizona. Our ultimate summer fantasy would be to hide in the suitcase of photo-snapping duo Julie Sarperi and Renaud Bonnet as they jet from one amazing destination to the next.

Nature photographer Dan Tom’s account is a serene array of mountain and seascapes—with a few llamas thrown in the mix. He’s been everywhere from Iceland to Chile and Norway, and we dig the dreamy coastal scenes of his native California.

After a brief stint as a professional travel consultant, San Francisco-based Jessica Wright started her travel blog, Bon Traveler, in 2013. Her slogan? "Travel well and travel often"—something we could have intuited from her gorgeous, all-over-the-map feed.

4. @ovunno

If there was ever a king of landscape photography, it’s Spanish-born Oliver Vegas. His beautifully-curated feed is a blend of perfectly-composed nature shots and pulse-quickening adventure snaps (see below!).

A childhood spent exploring the rocky coves and snowy peaks of Spain’s Northern Basque Country developed Maïder Oyarzabal‘s eye for travel photography. We’re fans of the surf-inspired snaps from her recent trip to Bondi Beach, Australia.

Photographer Maud Chalard is best known for her portraits of young couples, but a second glance at her feed shows a natural talent for landscape photography. Just check out the shot below.

7. @ellisoconnor

From the glacial lakes in British Columbia to the beaches of San Francisco, Canadian photographer Emanuel Smedbøl is all about capturing the beauty of the great outdoors. He’s got some great cabin porn in there, too.
