Philly’s Top Instagrammers: Conrad Benner and Billy Cress

Check out part two of our video series of “Philly On The Gram” as PHL17’s David Grzybowski interviews the top Instagrammers of Philadelphia. Here is part 2 with Conrad Benner and Billy Cress.

Benner’s photography started when he launched his site Streets dept, a blog showcasing the Philadelphia art scene.

"Instagrammers in Philly show people a side of the city whether they are from here or not probably what they have never seen before. You can see the skyline a hundred thousand times but when you see it through the eyes of a really great photographer it can give you a whole different insight. A whole new excitement for the city," Benner said.

30-year-old Billy Cress joined Instagram four years ago snapping shots of Philadelphia neighborhoods.

"Its funny to say but Instagram has changed my life a bit. I’ve meet so many good people . So many job opportunities have come through about it. I really Love into photography as a result of it," Cress said.
