Vape photography has become an integral part of the vaping culture. Capturing vapour in all its glory through atmospheric and artistic shots has romanticised the classic purpose of the e-cigarette and is helping the push towards a quirky, artistic, distinctive and skilled lifestyle.
We personally can’t get enough of vape photography and are mesmerised by the surreal and insanely imaginative images that are born out of vaping inspired photography. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite photographers so that we can share with you handful of their spectacular images:
All of giikon’s images follow a particular style: crisp, clear and atmospheric. Unlike a lot of vape photography, giikon’s photographs aren’t abstract but very strong and well defined making the images incredibly pleasing to look at and easy to digest. High resolution and perfectly framed images are his trademark and we can’t get enough of his perfect depth of field!
Killronin’s photographs are dark, mystical with an edge of dreamlike and surreal elements. The reoccurring use of masks and anonymous faces creates a very impersonal and enigmatic vibe that gives the images an intensity not seen in other photographer’s images. The slightly magical (and somewhat creepy) nature of the images are what keeps killronin’s loyal band of followers forever wanting to get lost in more.
Similar to killronin’s photographs, anonymity features heavily in the gallery. The vapour is the focal point of nearly every image, taking up a lot of the frame and creating a strong contrast to the mostly gloomy backgrounds. Dark clothing on all the subjects seem to be imperative for creating the style and ambiance of each image – dark, moody and sinister.
The favourite subject for miniteshi’s vape photography is the vapour itself. Whilst many other vaping photographers focus on people or the specific product alongside the vapour, miniteshi puts the concentration almost exclusively on the incredibly photogenic and atmospheric vapour. These stunning photographs truly capture vapour in all its glory with high resolution, perfect composition and beautiful colours.
Breanna Hulett, who uses greyvape as her Instagram pseudonym, is relatively new to the world of vape photography but so far as created some of our favourite shots yet. Breanna uses a variety of techniques and styles to generate a dynamic gallery of images that reflect a variety of dimensions of the vaping lifestyle from unnerving shots of people in animal masks to breath taking landscape images.
We’ve been inspired by every one of these photographers and have taken elements of each one to bear in mind when we’re creating our own photographs.
