Before you start using some of the below top 10 most popular photography hashtags on Instagram for 2024, let me tell you something you have probably been turning a blind eye to…

Instagram may not be helping you reach your marketing goals

  • On average and across all industries, posts on Instagram reach only 2% of followers (If you are lucky!) This is a massive issue affecting thousands of marketers in different industries. 
  • You keep trying hard to build an audience on Instagram that you do not even own.
  • You cannot transfer your hard-earned Instagram followers to your own CRM or another platform.
  • Your customer acquisition costs from Instagram ads are through the roof.

The solution

I can offer you tailored marketing strategy training or a workshop that will help you:

What are the top 10 most popular photography hashtags on Instagram?

That was the question I asked myself while I was completing the ultimate driving Brisbane to Cairns road trip visiting the best stops for a few months and wanting to find popular photographic spots and lookouts. 

I was surprised many photographers I met on my epic road trip were not using some of the most popular Instagram photography hashtags to amplify and reach more followers and new potential customers.

I have done the research for you so you can start using some of the top 10 most popular photography hashtags for Instagram listed below…



If you want to have – let’s say – 30 great exclusive clients per week, then you do not necessarily need thousands of “likes” and “followers” on Instagram.

You may decide to reach – let’s say – mums with babies between 30-40 years old who are looking for baby photography in San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury area. That’s quite a niche and that could be enough business for you. Then you will use far better hashtags as you know the exact people you want to reach.

Before you start using some of the most popular photography hashtags on Instagram, you may want to also use some niche, unique photography hashtags that will connect you to your exact audience.

For example, if you provide photography services for companies in New York, you may also want to use “photography” and “NYC” related hashtags.

Publishing popular photography hashtags will surely bring you likes to your Instagram content, it may not be enough to reach your desired audience.

✪ Expert tip: Add popular photography hashtags to your Instagram posts and stories to increase your chances of being displayed on the Instagram Explore page using the hashtag sticker (you can only add one hashtag) or use the text tool (you can add up to 10 hashtags), you can even hide them by placing a sticker on top of them or use the colour tool to make the hashtags invisible but still findable” Mau

Photography hashtags are an important way to expand your Instagram audience and get more reach for your photography business. When you use a hashtag to promote your professional photography, your post will appear on the page for that hashtag. If you use a hashtag on an Instagram Story, it could be included in the relevant hashtag Story, which also appears on the hashtag page.
