Sherpas Cinema (@sherpascinema) is a production house. Their snowy feed showcases the challenging environs creators visit to shoot adverts and natural history films. Located halfway across the world in Canada, the company definitely channels the resourceful legacy of its namesake.

Seasonal joys are the highlight of Misaki Nagao’s (@naagaoshi) account. The Japanese photographer captures fairytale landscapes in major cities and his hometown Ishikawa. His latest series on winter has us aching to curl up in a ryokan inn with a bottle of sake.

Picture an Arctic tour leader. Did you immediately think of a burly man braving through blizzards? Yuliya Vassilyeva (@quasituttodigiulia) is an Italy-based photographer erasing these notions with her diverse feed. Join her on a photo tour (adventure, landscape, or ethno-centric) and traverse the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East, see big names like Baikal with new eyes, or go offroading in Scandinavia’s highlands.

Elena Chernyshova (@elena.chernyshova. photography) explores the ties between man, industry and freezing frontiers, with deliberate inclusions of its forlorn realities. Her most famous series is Days of Night–Nights of Day, set in the mining city of Norilsk, but Elena has also shot lesser-known topics like the Kupol gold mine, Russia’s Northern Sea Route, and modern-day reindeer hunts.

Frode Sandbech (@frodesandbech) reminds us of that one unattainable cool kid from school. A reputed snowboard photographer, his love for the icy wilderness is expressed in a gallery that’s nonchalant yet perfect. Skiing, surfing and other adventure sports show up on his handle, lit up with striking and unusual gel-and-flash combinations.
