Get Photographer title in your Instagram Bio

A lot of my friends have asked me how did I get the Photographer title in my Instagram profile / account. You can see that on my Instagram profile.

Notice the grey colour word under the name.

You can categorise your Instagram profile under a main category and then into a sub-category. You have to do this to get the Photographer title. To do this, you have to switch your personal Instagram profile into a Business account.

What should I do to get the Photographer title?

1. Below is my Instagram profile without the Photographer title. Go to your profile on your mobile and tap the gear icon.
