When people talk about nature photography as a style of photography,
what do they actually mean?
Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to display natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography
In this catalog you will find pictures of the nature, made in some special and artistic way. Most of these pictures are macro or close up photos.
I try to use various/different technic and different photo equipment.
I chase after a special light, composition and colours.
My pictures often have a surrealistic, impressionistic or fantasy look.
For this kind of photography I often use my favorite lens: Helios 58mm, Pentacon 29mm and 50mm. Thanks to these lenses I can get an unusual look of the nature.
I live in Norway, the country with endless landscapes.
The turquoise sea, the fjords, enchanting mountains, waterfalls, northern light… this is what I try to capture in my landscapes photography. Every season is different and interesting. The light is changing so often that the same place can look very different just in a few minutes.
I must say I am the lucky one who can live in symbiosis with nature, the nature which is so threatened today by the thoughtless use of a man.
Wildlife photography is a very interesting kind of art and the same time - big privilege, as a photographer is able to see the wild animals in their natural environment. Today so many species are endangered . It is scary. It’s really a horrifying fact how quick the species die out today! The thought that animals that I am photographing today may not be giving me the chance to be seen in a few dozen years really scares me.
Let's take care today about this what we still have!
In this album you can find a few species of mammals, birds and other animals, some of them are already on the red list of endangered species.
