5 Kelowna photographers you need to follow on Instagram

Check out this week’s list of great local photographers.

Is your Instagram feed chock-a-block with platefuls of food photos, friends indulging in shameless selfies with their favourite felines or mutts? Are there moments when the filtered view feels uninspired?

There’s a solution to that.

The Okanagan has some of the most stunning views and, lucky for us, some amazing photographers both pro and amateur who know how to match the F-stop to the rest spot.

So we’ve dug out five fantastic local photographers on Instagram so you can find Okanagan inspiration no matter where you find yourself.


Darren Hull is an editorial and commercial photographer who started his career in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but eventually moved west to open a studio in Vancouver where, according to his bio, he earned a reputation for shooting graphic, evocative portraiture and editorial photography.

Now he’s in Kelowna and this swimming shot is just about as Okanagan as you can get.

Hey now. 🤙
