We are used to seeing our favorite idols shining brightly in front of the camera — all of them are truly photogenic and know how to steal our hearts with their sparkling eyes and beautiful smiles. But some of them are exceptionally good behind the camera, too! We are lucky enough to see some of the beautiful pictures they have taken, and we want to see more!

Let’s see some of the best idol photographers! They really are great inspiration for all the hobby photographers out there!


Truly one of the most successful idol photographers, Myungsoo is known for taking absolutely breathtaking pictures. He released his photo essay book “L’s Bravo Viewtiful” and he was also revealed to be the photographer of some of Lovelyz’s teaser photos. Looking at his pics will fill your mind with calming and beautiful thoughts, so don’t miss out checking out his instagram profile for more amazing content!

Taehyung got the most inspiration for his photos from Ante Badzim, and the name #Vante was also a dedication towards his idol. The two interacted on social media some time ago, and Taehyung revealed some of his greatest works for their fans, too. It’s amazing to see how talented Tae is, and we can’t wait to see more!

Minghao is not only a talented performer, dancer, and fashion icon, but he also takes interest in photography, and his Instagram profile shows us perfectly just how skilled he is. Apart from taking pics of his surroundings and beautiful scenery, he often takes credit for the members’ amazing photos as well. Everyone needs a talented man like Minghao in their life.

Hongbin (VIXX)

When he’s not too busy promoting and performing with VIXX, acting in dramas, or playing video games in his room, VIXX’s resident visual Hongbin is doing his best as a hobby photographer. He might annoy some of his members with his work (Leo, we are looking at you), but we love his artistic pictures very much!

JB revealed his hobby back in 2015, and we can see his improvement since then. When his subunit with Jinyoung, JJ Project, came back last year, the two even had an exhibition with Jaebum’s photos and Jinyoung’s writings. He’s definitely got the skills, and we can’t wait to see more behind-the-scenes photos of the members in the future!
