Top 10 Street Instagram Accounts 2017

Hi friends! To follow up the top 10 nature Instagram accounts of 2017, here is the street category! For the past 6+ months I have been shooting a lot of street photography. Let me tell you right now, it isn't easy. The hit rate for a decent street shot is quite low. There are so many variables out of your control - location, light, weather, traffic and most importantly - the people. If you shoot all day and go home with just one good photo, it is considered a good day.

I think this is probably what I like about street photography the most. It can at times feel like a relentless grind, but it is that much more rewarding when you nail the shot. That is why I have so much respect for people who can shoot street consistently well. 

If you're looking for new people to follow into the new year, check these accounts below.

If you liked my top 10 street account list, you'll probably like @street.classics. It's a street photographer feature account I run on Instagram with a few friends. The account is predominately street photography (not that moodygrams type photoshop stuff). Give it a follow and submit to it via the #streetclassics hashtag.
