This Week’s Favourite Instagram Accounts – 001

Whether you think you could give David Bailey a run for his money or prefer trawling through photos of scantily clad females taking suggestive selfies, Instagram is the mobile mecca of some of the best photography, as well as the worst.

We’re big fans of Instagram here at The Idle Man and thought it was only right that we share some of our favorite accounts with you that showcase its positive side.

To kick off the first of this weekly feature we racked our brains and came up with a rather eclectic list of our top Instagram accounts that you really ought to follow if you aren’t doing so already.


It’s safe to say that Chicago-based architecture photographer Trasshand is one of the most exciting photographers on Instagram right now. No amount of words can really do his photos the justice they deserve – go have a look for yourself if you don’t believe us.

Chris John Millington

Boasting one of the best beards on the internet and also playing the lead role in The Idle Man’s Spring / Summer 2014 lookbook, is Chris Millington who is one seriously cool guy. If you’re looking for beard-spiration or you’re a fan of the great photos Chris takes on his travels then you know what to do next.

Marcus Nilsson

Tired of photos of nondescript and inedible looking meals clogging up your feed? Well fear not as former chef and now professional food photographer Marcus Nilsson is here to change all that. Expect plenty of great looking grub as well as some brilliant travel imagery thrown in for good measure.


There’s no denying the fact that this guy is living the dream. Not only does he have a crazy collection of expensive watches but he also seems to spend most days hanging out with hot women, driving fast cars and eating loads of tasty food. Like us, I’m sure you’re sat there wondering, what is his secret?

Good Life Hunting

Last up on this week’s list is an account that really doesn’t need much explanation. With a killer combination of slick super cars, tasty looking food and whole load of other good stuff thrown in the mix, this is an account that’s guaranteed to add some spark to your feed.
