Edward Wetson

Weston began experiencing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in 1946 and in 1948 shot his last photograph of Point Lobos. In 1946 the Museum of Modern Art, New York featured a major retrospective of 300 prints of Weston’s work. Over the next 10 years of progressively incapacitating illness, Weston supervised the printing of his prints by his sons, Brett and Cole. His 50th Anniversary Portfolio was published in 1952 with photographs printed by Brett. An even larger printing project took place between1952 and 1955. Brett printed what was known as the Project Prints. A series of 8 -10 prints from 832 negatives considered Edward’s lifetime best. The Smithsonian Institution held
the show, “The World of Edward Weston” in 1956 paying tribute to his remarkable accomplishments in American photography. Edward Weston died on January 1, 1958 at his home, Wildcat Hill, in Carmel, California. Weston’s ashes were scattered into the Pacific Ocean at Pebbly Beach at Point Lobos.


Quotes on Photography

To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.

DSLR Photography

If you’ve bought yourself a DSLR and, after unpacking it from the box, you are intimidated by the number of buttons and dials, and by the thickness of the manual, it can be very tempting to put the manual down, flick it onto ‘Auto’ and start shooting.  Whilst that is fine for some, it may not be long until you crave the creative control that inspired you to purchase a DSLR in the first place, but where do you begin?

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.Taking photographs began as a way to share his high and wild world with friends and family. In 1972 he became a full-time photographer after selling his small automotive business. Less than a year later he did his first major magazine assignment–a cover story for National Geographic.

Galen pioneered a special brand of participatory wilderness photography in which the photographer transcends being an observer with a camera to become an active participant in the image being photographed. His emotional connection to his subject matter came across clearly in his early mountain climbing photographs that first drew public recognition, but his landscape imagery, often made on the same adventures, has proven even more evocative because of the visual power he created from what he described as “a continuing pursuit in which the art becomes the adventure, and vice-versa.” In 1984 he received the Ansel Adams Award for his contributions to the art of wilderness photography. In 1992 Galen received a National Science Foundation Artists and Writers Grant to photograph Antarctica.


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.

Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams, the most famous name in landscape and nature photography, made the American landscapes timeless and eternal for upcoming generations. An avid and enthusiastic piano player, Adams was intending to become a pianist but a visit to Yosemite National Park in 1916 made an everlasting impact on him and capturing the beauty of nature using his camera came as a calling. Ansel didn’t become a full time photographer leaving music at bay, but coordinated both of his loves for a few years. In 1928, after his marriage with Virginia Best, he gave up on his musical inclinations and focused all his energy towards photography. Adams was not only a great photographer but also enjoyed developing new techniques which has been used in photography since then.

David Maitland

David Maithland is top famous wildlife photographer. He is a PhD in Zoology and an accomplished photographer. He has won several awards including the Wildlife Photographer of the Year in two consecutive years 2008 and 2009 which is commendable considering the fact that he had only taken up full time Nature Photography in 2006. His photographs capture the interaction of man and the wild. Infact, his work shows how men exploit animals for their benefit. One such picture of his of ‘Black Colobus Monkey’ is among his best work till date.'
