“My photographic curiosities have helped me be more open-minded. It’s humbling to realize what a tiny place we occupy in this world. Maybe that’s why my images have such interesting perspectives on environment and scale.” #landscape #ShotoniPhone by Daniel H. @holydanoly

“There are massive natural contrasts that exist amongst the Canary Islands. The islands to the west are characterized by mountainous landscape with magical volcanic valleys and thick forests. To the east, you can find moon-like environments, surrounded by white sand and beautiful beaches. It’s entirely unique.” #canaryislands #ShotoniPhone by Daniel C. @ddanicaceres

“When traveling and taking photographs in a foreign land, try your best to blend in. Learn the local language, frequent non-touristy areas, or spend more time in one place to build relationships and trust. As an outsider, it’s a constant challenge, but it will make your photos more authentic and natural.” #travel #ShotoniPhone by Dan G. @dan_greenberg

“Photography, like disability, is democratic. At first, you might not be able to tell who made a picture or any characteristics about them. If they have a real connection to a story, the passion, dignity and care will come through. My motivation comes from being part of the disabled community and wanting to change public perception about us. My injury has taught me that the body is so powerful and also so fragile, and how important the mind is. I’m going to keep shooting, writing and filming stories that I’m passionate about. I want to do justice to my community. They are the fire under me.” #disabilityawareness #ShotoniPhone by Nolan T. @nolantrowe

Commissioned by Apple. “I’ve lived in large cities for the past decade, but never felt totally connected to queer culture there. When I found the Gay Rodeo, I discovered an entirely different kind of queer culture in rural communities that was enlightening and inspiring. Everyone in the LGBTQIA+ spectrum is represented and supports each other. It’s this unique, safe space for queer people to connect over their love of Western culture while expressing their identities — folks who aren’t typically welcomed in the mainstream rodeo circuit. Here, you show up as you are, without fear of judgment or ridicule. It’s family.” #pride #ShotoniPhone by Luke G. @lukegilford. Head to Stories and IGTV for more.

Commissioned by Apple. “I don’t get overly bogged down by the idea of the perfect composition.

Commissioned by Apple. “At first, I was fascinated by the skill — seeing these indigenous women flying through the air, reclaiming the clothing their community was forced to wear as servants for Spanish occupiers. But then I saw it went beyond the ring. They’re fighting for their rights, for recognition, for equality. They’re fighting to put a meal on the table for their kids.
