Why landscape photography?

You could pose the question...

If you already have an answer, what is it?

These are my thoughts on the subject.

You can find and see the beauty everywhere, but the beauty of nature is the most immediate one. It is also the most universal, but not always the most obvious.

I like to travel, and I like to share my travel stories. I try to tell these stories through my pictures and show the beauty I see to those who would listen.

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

How can I help?

If you are a beginning photographer aiming to take better images, get some advice here!

Do you think getting started is the hardest part? There is so much to learn. There are so many different opinions and know-alls around. There is so much noise, that you feel it difficult to find the truth...

Do you believe getting better is even harder? Now you know your stuff and can tell good from so-so. You sense that your images are often so-so, but you don't see how you can improve, what to work on and pay attention to...

Sounds familiar? If you are stuck, have a question, or seek an honest opinion – get the help you need.
