Is your Instagram account connected to a Facebook Page?
Instagram Professional accounts must be connected to a Facebook Page before their data can be accessed through the API. Once connected, any Facebook User who is able to perform Tasks on that Page can grant your app an access token, which can then be used in API requests.
