Tools usedSocial Animal and Tweeple Search

Social Animal’s influencer search feature was used to perform an exact search for the keywords fashion photographer, model photographer, fashion photography, etc. in their Twitter Bio.

(Exact search: “fashion photographer”)

The accumulated number of results was more than 10K. The top parameters considered to sort were Listed On and The number of followers.

Now, the number of results was 380. They were then listed based on their Twitter following, engagement, and authenticity of their profile.

To make the list more authentic, the Following accumulation factor was also added to the list.

This excellent parameter is the number of unique follows a profile gets on Twitter and is provided by Tweeple Search.

After the final list was sorted based on follower accumulation, the profiles of the top 81 best fashion photographers were listed.


I really admired the work of all the fashion photographers listed in the article and their pictures gave a very distinct experience of the fashion world.

Here are a few pointers observed in the process of creating this article.

  • More than 80% of top fashion photographers are men.
  • Most of the top fashion photographers have websites aimed at giving a peek at their photography style for the visitor.
  • Instagram seems to be the social media for photographers as portraits gain more attention and appeal here.
  • Even the most famous fashion photographers don’t stay active on Twitter.
  • Most websites of top fashion photographers contain their portfolio.
