For those of you confused by the term hub, let me explain what I’m referring to. Essentially, a hub is an account that features the content of other Instagram users. Often times, hubs are based on shooting styles, locales, or subject matter. Active hub accounts will post content featuring users that submitted their content to the hub or gave the hub permission to post.
To be selected by the hub for a feature, you usually just have to follow their account and use their branded hashtag. If they have other requirements, you’ll usually find those in their bio space or in the caption of their latest posts.
Now that you understand what I’m referring to, you probably realize that you already follow some hubs on Instagram. There are so many good ones out there, but for this post, I’m listing 11 inspiring Instagram hubs that I personally recommend.
I keep my feed filled with various hubs to keep tabs on photography/editing trends, discover new talent, and become inspired by what others are doing. This inspiration turns into motivation and fuels me to get out and shoot each day.
I’m gonna shut up now and let you get to browsing the following hubs, but stay tuned for another post within the next couple of days regarding other ways to use hubs to improve your Instagram engagement rates, gain followers, and strengthen connections!
If you have a favorite hub that you draw inspiration from, feel free to comment it below. If I get enough submissions, I just might have to create another post. Keep on creating!
