Social media is one of the largest ways we communicate with each other. In fact, it’s estimated that there are over 2.34 billion social media users worldwide.
With numbers like that, it can be hard to imagine that someone from a city of less than 80,000 could hit it big online. However, with social media’s global reach working in their favour, a select few of our homegrown crowd have really capitalized on the social media craze and are starting to make worldly names for themselves.
With instant access to a global audience, it really does not matter where you call home. Take this list of five PG’ers that are killing it on Instagram, as proof.
If you’re looking to align yourself with a rockstar babe that dishes out tons of free motivational speeches and weight loss advice, Tasha Wall from Tasha Wall Fit may be your girl. Her quirky antics, free spirit and no bologna philosophy offers a refreshing take on the current fitness guru trend. Her Insta stories are filled with everything from supermodel makeovers to family friendly food to real talk about postpartum depression. Follow her if you are looking to trash the excuses or simply just need a gal pal you can relate to.
Named after the Norse God of fire, local photographer Kris Foot is taking the light painting world by storm.
With his hauntingly beautiful depiction of fire and not one, but two national titles under his belt, it’s easy to see why this Prince George native has over 17k followers. His craft is definitely not for the faint of heart as his shoots take place anywhere from abandoned buildings to twilight waterfalls.

However, although her content is mucho enviable, Jonita is more than just a bunch of pretty photos. Her blog’s message is all about ‘you doing you’ and inspiring people to live their best lives.
The harsh reality is that there will always be animals on Instagram that are cooler than you are. Case in point: Tito of @bluechihuahuatito. His adorable tongue-out poses and extensive puppy wardrobe are an awesome pick me up for anyone who is having a gloomy day. It really is no surprise that this Prince George pooch has a following of over 10,000 – how could a face that enduring not be famous?
Okay so technically not Instagram famous but can a blog about P.G. social media celebrities ever be complete without including Chuck Chin?
