I like to follow people on Instagram  for a few reasons:  If they are one my dear friends, I want to see what is going on with their lives, constant pictures of their dog, dinner, baby, it doesn’t matter because  they are a dear friend I love anything from them.  Now everyone  else… I like beautiful pictures, people, places, or things. I like creative captures, interesting and witty. I like beautiful women with tasteful pictures. I like cool quotes. I like good tattoos. Stuff like that.  I’m just gonna do 5 this month, and do some more of my favorite’s and why later.

Here is my list of some of the best people to follow on Instagram,  not necessarily this order. 

1.timhendricksGreat tattooer, one of the best in the world.  Pictures of black and grey tattoos, but does color tattoos perfectly also.  Great human. Very dear friend.  (552/132k/675)

2.xmanoelxnetoxOne of my favorite people in the world, positive hardcore, straight edge, vegan, gentleman, and such a amazing tattoo artist, black and gray gangster or traditional. Super Pma from Brasilia. Dear Friend. (1386/6873/166)

3.tobymorse The best example of a human, husband, father, friend, singer (H2O) Pma, straight edge, vegan.  Cool photos from at home and on tour all over the world,  A lot of musicians and Nikes, also pics from schools where he speaks to youth about positive living (onelifeonechance.com) (1465/13k/82)

4.iviwolfThis woman has such a nice visual eye for a classy picture.  To me, her photos are a great representation of a classy lady.  I like classy ladies. Great architecture, interiors, fashion and nyc photos.  I don’t know her personally, although we did have a semi awkward/pleasant bump into each other meeting once as I was walking out of a store and she was walking in at the same time, we  exchange pleasantries and went on our way.  (4215/1461/223)

5.jasonnorton- Norton is a dear friend and is a very unique individual, with a great sense of humor, kind of his own brand of humor that grows on you the longer you know him.  Amazing photos that are off from the “norm” perhaps best know for his Intersection photos. Also bull riding photos. (1243/1163/471)

My friend Fernando Mazza is from Brazil, he has been spending this past month in town and has become a friend and client.  Fernando is the cousin of my friend Rodrigo who works with me at Wooster Social.  I was really impressed with his work and it was a honor to put some of mine on him.  He came to Ny to work on a project for a magazine called Mens Moments Magazine and I’m proud to say I was apart.  We shot a full day at Wooster aka NYInk.  It was nice to be shot by a friend which whom I have respect for.
