Similar to Katelyn’s feed, Veera perfectly depicts the minimal style. To compliment her excellent style she is fantastic at using light and shade to add depth to her images making them that much more intriguing.

Minimal taken to the extreme, with a twist. Some of Patricia’s amazing photos feature a tinted, pale color along with images flipped, tilted, or twisted. Pretty cool if you ask me.

16. Scott Rankin

Vancouver based photographer Scott Rankin is a fantastic photographer of nature. His minimal shots of epic landscapes and scenes in the nature around him make his account one of my favorites.

17. Gabriel Flores

Not your typical minimal photographer. Gabriel’s photos have incredibly depth and detail, but are all focused on darker tints and tones adding a minimal aspect to them. Being a fiend for all things vintage, his feed really intrigued me.

I use the term minimal loosely at this point, but couldn’t pass up featuring Timothy. His work is so clean and I am obsessed with his style. Call it whatever you want, but I think it has a slightly minimal aspect to it.

Dan Cole’s work is out of this world. I consider him to be a king of leading lines based off of his work. He extends upon his photography on his Tumblr.
