Instagram makes it easy to view different photos from all over the world, but more than 200 Million monthly active users make it difficult to find quality accounts or nice photos, especially when they are lost in popular hashtags.
We want to share with you 6 Awesome Bahraini Instagramers that we follow. The accounts are selected based on our interest in Travel and Photography, and based on our opinion on the photos they post and how they effectively affecting in the community through Instagram.
Keep in mind our list here is completely subjective. Some of these accounts are more personality driven, while others create a steady stream of incredible and diverse images. And we are sure; there are a lot of other quality accounts, since we have many talented guys in Bahrain.
Alya has a unique taste that everyone agreed she is a talented woman. She is posting photos with different insights than what we normally see of the places she is traveling to. She has been traveling to many countries around the world; Hungary, Norway, UK, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Austria, Portugal, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and others. But what most attracted us are the photos from her visits to Sudan, Egypt, Morocco and Iran.
Alya has been featured on Instagram official account as a suggested user for the list of top photographers in Instagram; they see her as a model Instagrammer. And what is more nicely, she dedicated this feature to the Sudanese children she met in a remote village in Omdurman.
Khalid is one of the Bahraini Instagrammers that has been featured on Instagram as well, but what makes us happy to follow his photos, that he is posting very simple yet very powerful photos that tell the stories of Bahrain’s capital “Manama”. He describes himself in a brief statement “A guy with a camera / from Bahrain, lost in Manama”.
If you are interested in different events in Bahrain, Al-Shaikh account is the best place to get many real and on ground photos from Bahrain.
Al-Shaikh is a photo journalist and a well-known photographer for his coverage about Bahrain, Mohammed Al-Shaikh is an AFP photographer, and EFIAP (Excellence Federation International De L’Art Photographique) awarded.
We like Saleh’s amazing monochrome photos, specially the stunning collection from Yemen.
Saleh is well-known for his award winning short films; “Lu’ba” was Official Selection at over 20 festivals worldwide. And recently his film “Central Market” also was Official Selection at Montreal World Film Festival. Saleh is one of the best filmmakers in Bahrain and GCC, if not the best!
