MAKING LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHS, A CHALLENGING PROCESS & AN INTERESTING JOURNEY
Since almost 20 years landscape photography has been a great passion of mine. It started with looking more intensively at landscapes, maybe breathing it in or absorbing it are the right words. By doing so one sees better how the landscape unfolds, how it reveals its secrets or how the light colors the scene. You discover what potential a particular landscape has for you as a photographer when you are receptive and tuned in, Chance favours the prepared mind the late and great American landscape photographer Ansel Adams once said.For almost four decades the United Kingdom has offered me great opportunities in outdoor pursuits, the last 20 years mainly in making landscape photographs. There’s a great variety in landscapes and the country has a very long and often stunning coastline. And where sea meets land there’s always something happening and something to do for a photographer. So you’ll find many images on this website that have been taken in the UK, wider landscapes as well as close ups. Thank you for visiting my website.
