As one of the fastest growing social media networks, Instagram is one of the best mediums to showcase your creativity. Since its beginnings as an iPhone only app, much has changed in the Instagram universe. Today, a lot of users showcase photos made with other cameras and it’s getting harder to find users who keep iPhone-only Instagram accounts.

Here, we’ve prepared a small compilation of our favourite Instagramers who post images shot only with their iPhones. We hope you find some new inspiration in their feeds, too!


Product designer Cocu Liu divides his time between Chicago and San Francisco. His gallery is a collection of urban shots from both cities. His style is clean and minimalistic and he has a great eye for composition.
