As a stock photographer, you are used to tagging your photos really well on Getty Images, Shutterstock, or istockphoto.
And you can use a lot of what you have learned from stock photo tagging to Instagram tagging.
Most popular stock photography hashtags on Instagram
#stockphoto #stockphotography #stockphotos #stockphotographer #stockphotographysubscription #stockphotomemes #stockphotoimagefun #stockphotoindonesia #stockphotomeme #stockphotoclone #stockphotosforfree #pexels #unsplash #shutterstock #gettyimages #canva #snappa #stockpicture #stockpictures #gettyimage
What’s the subject of your stock photo?
Besides using these general stock photography hashtags, you should also use subject-specific hashtags.
I made a big list of hashtags based on other photography genres you can utilize depending on the situation.
- Street Photography tags.
- Portraits Photography.
- Black & White hashtags.
- Wedding Photography.
- Landscape Photography.
- Fashion & Editorial Photography.
- Wildlife photography.
- Photojournalism & press photography.
- Food Photography.
- Macro Photography.
- Long Exposure photography.
- Drone & Aerial photography.
But remember to read how you use hashtags on Instagram effectively. Just because you copy/paste these stock photography hashtags on Instagram, doesn’t mean you will see a huge increase in visibility, reach and followers.
As a stock photographer, you know how tough the competition is. And when sites like Unsplash gives customers high quality and royalty free images away for free, we know it will only get more competitive.
Good luck chasing the explore pages and followers on Instagram. I hope you can use this list of stock photo related Instagram hashtags to get there.
