5 Notable Landscape Photographers

Landscape photography is the art of capturing the world around you with as much enchanting detail as possible. The idea is to present the beauty and unique elements of the location, that are more visible to the naked eye, in photographic form.

Many landscape photography prints are done in a way that makes the space look vast, open and never ending. However, some photographers also choose to shoot landscapes on a smaller scale, showing just one piece of a larger location. 

This style is probably one of the most common and popular forms of photographic art, with images being captured and shared by nearly everyone with a camera or smartphone. Even something as simple as seeing the sunset on a family trip to the beach, has most parents tapping into their inner shutterbug and trying to capture the visual before them.

So what makes some landscape photographers stand out from the crowd? We took a closer look at the life and work of 5 notable photogs who have made their name capturing the world around them.

Ansel Adams – Accepted widely as the most famous landscape photographer, Adams helped to define the entire genre. As an environmentalist, he was driven by the desire to photograph, but also protect nature. Adams used a large format camera to photograph nature on both a large scale and using close ups. He focused largely on black and white shots.

Eliot Porter – Fighting against the artistic standard of his peers, Porter was the first notable photographer to use color throughout his work. He started his passion with photographing birds and other wildlife, focusing on the more close up and detailed shots of nature. He garnered great popularity with his book, In Wildness Is the Preservation of the World, published through the Sierra Club.

Peter Lik – With one of the strongest international reputations in the photography industry, Lik made a name for himself with stunning panoramic landscape photography images.  Completely self-taught, he has traveled around the world to gather iconic images and set them up in 13 of his own galleries. His work captures striking colors and creates larger than life pieces that are collected by celebrities and world leaders alike.

Galen Rowell – Another strong conservationist, Rowell got his start working on pieces for National Geographic. He looked at landscape photography as an adventure and would even take to rock climbing to get the shot he was after. He is known for setting new standards with film when it comes to depth, lighting and filters.

David Muench – Following in the footsteps of his father, Muench became a published landscape photographer before he was even done high school. He is widely popular with more than 50 exhibit format books and countless calendars, making him a household name even today. Muench perfected the technique of capturing a focused foreground with the vast beauty around it.

How about instead of talking about how bad their pictures are you worry about yourselves. I would be pleased to inform you not everyone is perfect. Don’t be like that. They are amazing photographers, and honestly you should be working on your photography skills instead of judging everyone else, because I’m pretty sure you aren’t anywhere near as good as them. So, before you go and judge people fix yourself, but until you’re perfect shut up.
