Instagram is a favourite among those in the travel community. Its an easy way to share your epic travel moments and you can spend hours scrolling though wanderlust-worthy photos filled with inspiration for your next adventures.
But all too quickly those awe-inspiring moments and memories have been swapped for photo-shoot type material. Travellers are starting to look more like models than adventurers and the scenery, once the focus, is now just an artistic backdrop. Sure, these photos are beautiful and often very artistic and creative. But they have taken away from what it really means to travel and live an adventure; to be proud to show off your experience and not just your looks.
If you are more interested in the places themselves and the feelings you get from being there rather than lessons on how to pose perfectly, then you should check out these female adventurers. They usually spend more time behind the lens than in front of it, but when they do appear in their photos there’s no over-the-top posing.
