Professional Landscape Photographer Artist

Landscapes are beautiful and inspiring.

My passion for the wonders of nature has led me to appreciate and enjoy them. I love the wide variety of landscapes. They range from the snowy slopes of mountains to lush forests and fertile meadows. I have always wanted to share with others the emotions I experience around landscapes. Landscape photography became the only way for me to demonstrate the whole range of my emotions. It has become a way for me to showcase the wonders of nature.

Inspired by Beautiful Landscapes

All my inspiration comes from contemplation of the wonders of nature. Landscapes are only one facet of nature. I travel to discover new landscapes, and I look at each one I find to see how I can best capture all of its colors and details in a photograph. I always try to find the view which will bring to others the same joy that I feel when I see it.

I am always looking for the lighting which will bring out the best in the scenes which I photograph. This is my photographic vision. I always do my best to show the true beauty of the wonderful landscapes that are my source of inspiration.

All compositions and frames are carefully designed and perfectly fit in with my photographic vision and the message I want to deliver.

Photographing Landscapes to Raise Awareness

My landscape photographs are intended to express my emotions about a beautiful scene. I love the harmony of shapes, colors, and lights in landscapes. It is very difficult for me to translate the emotions I feel into words. The image has become a great way for me to showcase the wonders of nature, whether in my exhibitions or my conferences. I always try to show the fragility of nature and how much its survival depends on reasoned and reasonable human behavior.

Landscapes are represented in many books, magazines and postcards. Pictures of them are found nearly everywhere. However, I always manage to amaze and surprise my audiences at my shows or during my presentations. Many people know the places I photograph but they are often surprised by the way I have photographed them, using different angles or unusual, beautiful lighting. Any landscape can be photographed in a multitude of different ways. People see landscapes so often that they just become part of their environment, and nobody pays attention to them anymore.

My work as professional photographer artist is to create landscape photographs which remind people of the fragility and beauty of this wonderful world.

Rediscovering Forgotten Wonders

One of my specialities is to try to show people the wonders and variety of the landscapes that they see all the time. I try to find the treasures hidden in everyday places. I try to surprise people with the wonders of the landscapes close to them and inspire them to go rediscover the wonders that lie just beyond their garden gate.

Using Photo Techniques to Show the Wonders of Landscapes

To better demonstrate the wonders of landscapes, I use all available photographic techniques. I prefer photographs with wide dynamic ranges show all the fine details of each landscape. Textures and materials are important elements in landscape photography. But the techniques are not an end in themselves for me. They are only meaning to achieve my end, and that end is to create a work of art that can be treasured for generations to come.

Share with Other Photographers my Passion for Landscapes

I love to meet other photographers who are also passionate about beautiful landscapes. I share my techniques and my knowledge about landscapes. This is an opportunity for me to share my passion for the wonders of nature with other photographers who also seek for inspiration from nature. Sharing my techniques often allows participants in my photo trips to discover new artistic inspiration.
