8 black fashion photographers you should already be following on Instagram.

They're not new to this.

Black fashion photographers are behind some of the most iconic editorial shoots on your Instagram feed. From Dana Scruggs's groundbreaking capture of Tori Bowie for ESPN Magazine, to Tyler Mitchell's gun control cover for Teen Vogue — and the much-discussed September Vogue cover that followed — there's no shortage of POC who are shaping culture through the camera's lens. 

They're not a trend, nor a new-ish phenomenon. Each photographer on this list is already quite prolific, shooting magazine covers, releasing coffee table books, and lensing major ad campaigns. And the world is only starting to take notice.

While most agree that there's an urgent need for inclusivity in front of the camera, not enough attention is paid to diversity behind-the-scenes. But representation is important in every facet of the fashion industry, from photographers to stylists, editors to cover subjects. Ahead, we've listed 8 black fashion photographers you should be following on Instagram — and the brands that have been quietly championing them for years.
