This week’s featured Instagram account comes courtesy of @zakshelhamer. A self-confessed social influencer and adventure photographer, Zak Shelhamer, uses his account to inspire like-minded people and instil some get-up-and-go in those who keep making excuses to put off travel.
Mostly captured on his very scratched and dented iPhone 4, Shelhamer’s photographs are very in the moment. From backward flips into a river in Alberta to failed surfing shots, he really doesn’t miss a shot.
Shelhamer’s passion for photography stemmed from his lust for snowboarding. However, after too many cuts and bruises, he decided to take a step back and snap it instead. Voted one of the top ten Instagram photographers and product photographer for extreme sports brands such as Vail resorts, Quiksilver and Vans, Shelhamer has come a long way since his iPhone 4 days and his pictures are just getting better and better.
