These Instagram profiles will make you fall in love with Brum

Although it can sometimes be seen as the concrete jungle, Brum is constantly developing and over the last few years has transformed into an impressive and vibrant city.

Hence the continuously growing number of Instagrammers, capturing our beautiful city. Here are some of the best ones and they are so worth checking out if you love Brum.

1. @jukesross

Ross Jukes is a freelance photographer from Brum. He blogs, takes cool pictures and shoots awesome videos of our city. In his recent post, he said: " Birmingham is positively brimming with opportunity. You can't walk the streets of the city without stumbling over another uber-cool design agency, website company, media firm or start-up. Photographers queue politely to take shots of the Bullring. The city is electric with change and suddenly the grey concrete jungle feels like it's the beating heart of something special."

 2. @birminghman

With 12.5k followers, this Insta account has some pretty stunning shots of Brum on offer. Although the identity of the photographer is not revealed, they definitely got some serious photography and editing skills.

'Perfection Is Found Within The Lines' ________________________________________________ Throwback to when me and @toby.westwood ventured out into the city to capture the sunset. Instead of being greeted by rays of sunshine as we had hoped for. We were greeted with clouds with the chance of rain. We walked through the streets of Brum to find some inspiration amongst the poor lighting and clouds when I came across this classic view. Didn't take long before I decided to lay on the tram tracks ? ________________________________________________ Have you been to the @igersbirmingham Exhibition yet. There's still plenty of time!! The exhibition has been extended! And yes this is the 3rd time I have posted this. ________________________________________________ #mycanon #canonuk #brumset #symmetricalmonsters #estheticlabel #ourmoodydays #birmingham #birminghamlife #lensbible #citykillerz #beautifuldestinations #illgrammers #leagueoflenses #igersbirmingham #urbanandstreet #createandcapture #reflectiongram #uk_shooters #HypeBeast #HeaterCentral #CreativeOptic #VisualsOfEarth #streetdreamsmag #ukshooters #independantbirmingham #ilovebrum #bhamgram
