Video by @debachak Bodybuilders and acrobats gather at the famed Muscle Beach in California to show off their strength — as in this video from photographer Deb Achak (@debachak). “Eager to see this particular athlete perform, I asked if I could capture him as he practiced,” says Deb. “He happily obliged.”

Photo by @jimchanfc “I love how I captured the joy and excitement of a child whose main worry is when the ride is going to end and nothing else,” says Jimmy Chan (@jimchanfc) of his #WHPmoveit submission. “I hope this inspires everyone to get out there and enjoy life as much as possible.”

Photo by @shaistadeen Photographer Shaista Deen (@shaistadeen) is giving the world the role model she wanted. “Growing up in Trinidad and Tobago, I never saw any female hijabi photographers,” says the 22-year-old great-great-granddaughter of Indian immigrants. At age 14, she saved up for her first camera. With a bedroom desk lamp as her studio light and a stack of books as a tripod, she captured what was closest: her friends, her family and herself. “I was very different with regards to the way I saw myself back then,” she remembers. “I was depressed for a period of time as a teenager. Photography was one of the main things that helped me out of that. I was extremely insecure about myself, pessimistic and doubted my abilities a lot. After I was able to get past all of that, I wanted to help others do the same.” Now, she’s a university student (and freelance photographer) living in the UK, but Shaista misses her homeland — and the Caribbean sun. “I love my little island and I’m proud of where I’m from,” she says. Watch today’s story to learn more about Shaista.

“Glitter against gloom” is how Indian fashion designer Ashish Gupta (@ashish) describes his colorful, sequined clothes. “Growing up in New Delhi, I always admired my mum’s silk saris and her collection of shoes,” says Ashish. “She had such great taste. It really made me appreciate fabrics and colors, and want to make beautiful outfits — I couldn’t imagine a more glamorous way of living.” After moving to London more than 20 years ago to complete a degree in fashion at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design — and once having his entire portfolio of work stolen at a train station in Paris — Ashish first showed his collection at the 2004 London Fashion Week. He hasn’t stopped creating his “understated overstatement” designs since. “It feels scary, exciting, familiar, moving and inspiring,” says Ashish of showing at #LFW. “I never get used to it - every show feels as intense as the first time.” Watch our story to go behind the scenes with Ashish at his show in London. ✨

Featured photo of @diavolo_la by @loewe7 Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmoveit Inspired by the Winter Olympics, this weekend’s goal is to create photos and videos celebrating the power of movement, as in this featured photo by Thai Haong (@loewe7). You don’t have to be an athlete to capture the everyday action around you, like a spontaneous trampoline session or a daily run through the park. Keep an eye out for repeating shapes or colorful backdrops to elevate your images. Play with different viewpoints to maximize energy. Make us feel the drama with intense expressions and extreme angles, like an unexpected selfie during an exhilarating cheerleading practice. Use creative tools like slow-motion or time-lapse to add another layer of depth to your submission. Capture the blur from a crashing wave while surfing or a freeze frame of a mid-air jump in order to transport us into the action. PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmoveit hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

For American ice dancers Maia and Alex Shibutani (@shibsibs), their family bond is their greatest strength. “Skating with a sibling is unique,” says 23-year-old Maia (@maiashibutani). “But we’ve always gotten along well. Alex is an awesome big brother and now that we’re on the same team, we treat each other like equals. It’s a huge strength for us to know that we support each other unconditionally.” Competing in their second Winter Olympics, in #Pyeongchang2018, Maia and Alex are no strangers to success in ice dancing, a ballroom dancing-influenced form of figure skating: They are three-time world medalists and two-time U.S. champions in their sport. And earlier this week, they won bronze in the team figure skating event. But being Olympic athletes — together — is their greatest triumph. “Our bond extends beyond our skating together as a team,” says 26-year-old Alex (@alexshibutani). “We’ll be best friends for the rest of our lives.” 🇺🇸 Lace up your skates and watch our story to join Maia and Alex as they prepare for the Winter Olympics (@olympics), which are taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea, February 9-25. Keep tuning in as we spotlight competing athletes from around the world.

Photo by @lilfrankies A staple of NYC’s East Village neighborhood, Lil’ Frankie’s (@lilfrankies) is home to lots of love stories. 🍕❤️ “I can’t think of anything more special than someone taking the time to write me an email about how they fell in love over one of my pizzas or pastas,” says chef and restaurant owner Frank Prisinzano (@frankprisinzano), who regularly treats couples who met at one of his restaurants to a free dinner, and the Instagram community to his cooking tutorials. “I love to feed people and teach them how to cook. That’s my calling, I guess!” We’re heading into the kitchen to celebrate #ValentinesDay with Chef Frank. Check out our story to get in on the love.
