Travel Photography isn’t just restrited to magazines and/or calendar images. With the inception of Social Media the word ‘Travel’ has taken the internet by storm and there some who have through constant efforts and experience reached out to thousands of people with their stunning imagery and vivacious story-telling. This list is to give you the list of 10 such travel photographers from India, on instagram –

  1. Hari Menon (@harimenon4u) – If we talk of travel photography and don’t start the list with this man it would be a sheer injustice to the topic. The man known for creating several online businesses is now solely dedicated to photography. From the valleys of Ladakh to the coast of Kerala, you be sure this man has been there before you, taking photos depicting the India in all it’s possibly natural essence. Not just a great photographer but a visual poet as one can say, his photographs surely speak a lot more than thousand words. Facebook – Hari Menon Photography
