The best hashtags for photographers to use on Instagram 2019

Instagram has once again changed its algorithm. This time the algorithm changes affect how we use hashtags. In the past, you would create a set of hashtags that you would consistently use. An example of this would be branded hashtags such as #aloyoga project.

Now Instagram is penalizing users that continually use the same hashtag. This means the end of branded hashtags. You may be wondering, what does this mean for your personal account?

It means that you’re going to need a large number of hashtags to rotate. Why? Because if you keep using similar # Instagram will penalize your account.

Instagram is a visual social media platform. It is a perfect medium for photographers to grow their audience, make sales and get their work recognized. So don’t let the updates deter you!

A great way to achieve more traffic to your account is by nailing the right Hashtags. So here are our best photography hashtags to use on Instagram in 2019. Just make sure you rotate those hashtags on your Instagram posts!

FAQ

Is Instagram is useful for photographers?

Yes. Photographers create premium content that users want to share. This is the key to going viral.

How do photographers leverage Instagram?

Photographers use Instagram to showcase promote and sell their work.

Since Instagram is the most popular visual social media marketing platform it is perfect for photographers to showcase their work on. In fact on this visual platform it has almost become socially expected for users to post high quality images.

Promoting your photography brand with user-generated content.

Local baby photographers may choose to promote their photography packages through their Instagram account. A few ways these can be done is showcasing their latest work and tagging the families. This allows them to reach more people organically and connect with an audience that is interested in their products. 

Since birds of a feather flock together you will find that people who are getting pregnant and having families will also have friends in the same stage of life.

A great example of this is I recently had my second child. A few of my friends were pregnant at the same time in my local area. One of my friends have posted on social media her newborn baby photos and I just loved them. I was able to contact the photographer immediately as she had tagged the business in the photographs.

While we are all not family photographers this does not mean that we can’t use Instagram to reach more users and connect with our target audience to make more sales. 

Wedding photographers may target their audience geographically but you will find that the top photographers will travel for bookings. By showcasing the latest works through social media they can connect with other brands and services that were provided at the wedding.

For instance the photographer can feature photographs of the beautiful bride in her dress holding her floral bouquet with her perfect hair and makeup. The photographer can tag the makeup artist, the hairdresser, the wedding dress supplier, the venue and the florist. 

This extends their reach and gives the other brands at the event the opportunity to repost the content. This means that the photographer will now be featured on the brands own social media channels, therefore promoting the photographers work to their audience. 

The great thing about that is their followers are the photographers target market.

Make it easy for customers to contact you.

It’s really important to ensure that your Instagram Business account is set up so that it is easy for customers to contact you. By switching to a business account you can enable two call to action buttons on your profile being phone and email.
