Instagram has become the ultimate life-envy app.

People post pictures of bodies you wish you had, doing jobs you wish you did in places you wish you were.

However, occasionally you will stumble across an Instagrammer who is so awesome you can't help but follow them just because they're cool. If only you could be friends IRL!

Here are ten of them:

1. Joel Strong (mydaywithleo)

Joel is a satirical photographer who cuts out the faces of famous people in photographs, and holds it up to a human body. Hilarity ensues.

2. Ruby Rose (rubyrose)

Part actor, part joker, part DJ, Ruby exploded onto the television with her role in the Netflix series Orange is the New Black and her awkward, honest photos charm and amuse in equal measure.

3. Serena Williams (serenawilliams)

One of the most hardcore sportswomen around, her Instagram feed is filled with her training sessions, red carpet appearances and food. Serious #goals.

4. Raskalov (raskalov)

This 22-year-old free climber scales some of the tallest buildings/mountains/basically anything high altitude with a camera strapped to him. Some of his pictures will give you vertigo.

5. Camille Becerra (camillebecerra)

Camille is a New York-based chef whose photos about the cooking process are both charming and insightful. And her feed is also filled with food. Lots of delicious food.

6. Alexander Mijares (mijares)

Alexander is an artist whose colourful canvas pieces are often placed next to equally colourful, stunning backdrops.

7. Tess Holiday (tessholiday)

Tess is a plus-sized model whose Instagram photos are quirky and beautifully shot, and offers an alternative perspective into modelling and beauty ideals.

8. Brandon Stanton (humansofny)

Better known as Humans of New York, Brandon's intimate portraits of the people he meets on the streets of New York make for great viewing. Your Instagram feed will never be dull.
