Instagram Hashtags For Photography That Will Get You Noticed

Tired of your hashtags not walking the walk? Want to get your content noticed by people who will love your work? Use this strategy and find the best Instagram hashtags for photography!

 

It’s time to face the cold, hard facts.

You’re not going to grow your photography Instagram account if you keep using generic hashtags like #instagood #travel and #photooftheday.

With more than 95 million photos uploaded onto Instagram each day, you need to get SPECIFIC if you want to grow an engaged and targeted following.

The best hashtags that will get you noticed aren’t the most popular. 

Why?

Because EVERYONE else is using them and your post will get buried in a matter of minutes or seconds.

Yikes.

How to Find The Perfect Photography Hashtags for Your Account

Ready to get strategic with your hashtags?

With a maximum of 30 per post, you need to investigate each one to make it aligns with your brand, and you’re able to snag one of the top 9 spots.

Er… What’s the top 9?

It’s the top trending photos for that specific hashtag. If you can get your picture there, you’ll increase impressions, likes and attract new followers.

No bots required! (or allowed!)

How to Get Your Photos in the Top 9

The easiest and best way to get your photos onto the “Top Posts” tab is by avoiding super competitive hashtags.

A good rule of thumb is to take the average number of likes you get for a photo (let’s say it’s 400) and multiply it by 1000.

The final number (400,000) means you should target hashtags with 400,000 or fewer entries.

That’s your sweet spot!

Hashtags for Instagram Stories

Psst… You don’t only have to use your hashtag research for your feed posts. Play around with the most relevant tags you find and use them in your Instagram Stories.

It will give your account a boost and can land you up on the explore page!
