Fantastic Virginia Photographers to Follow Right Now

Virginia photographers bring the beauty, adventure, and diversity of our home state to life, inspiring our travels and prompting us to explore new destinations. Happily, social media makes it easy to follow these artists with a camera, as they share their captures of Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region.

Almost nothing inspires like a sunrise or sunset, but we are rarely able to capture these perfect moments on our own. Wildlife encounters are magical, but we lack the camera gear and the patience to stake out the perfect bear or bird photo session. Luckily, there are expert Virginia photographers in our midst, willing to brave freezing temperatures, dark paths, long waits, and early mornings, to capture the magic for us.
