Nature Photography

Artists and photographers in particular never cease to be inspired by nature's abundance and awe-inspiring landscapes. Large, green open spaces, the savanna, forests, prairies and even the bottom of the garden have all been sources of inspiration. Professionals and photography lovers alike continue to try and immortalise Mother Nature, in all her forms.

Today, landscape photography has become an art form in its own right. Whether it be aerial, underwater or even macro photographic, this artistic form of expression takes you on a journey far away and delights your senses thanks to the array of sensational colours, sublime compositions and its exceptional use of light.

Ansel Adams was one of the pioneers to write the rules for landscape photography. In the 20th century, he invented the 'zone system' with Fred Archer, a technique which allows the photographer to have greater control over the image's contrast and exposure. An ecologist who was ahead of his time, the depth of field that Adams uses in his shots forces us to face how fragile the natural world is and how it deserves to be protected.

Although portraits have dominated photography since its very invention, interest in landscape photography has gradually increased as the world has continued to open up. In its early days, it was highly standardised and took its inspiration from the Impressionist movement, striving to capture the landscape's atmosphere. After the First World War, as technology improved, landscape photography became more realistic and artistic depending on the photographer's vision. By playing around with the centring, photographers can create a sharper or more blurred effect.

Landscape photography quickly became more widespread with the arrival of digital cameras which allow the photographer to capture the image without losing any of the finer details: a sunset, the heaviness of a dense mist, animal fur, the droplets on a flower petal…It is easy to understand why certain artists have spent their lives trying to immortalise the mystifying magic of Mother Nature and have incessantly continued to improve their photographic techniques.

The discipline requires a lot of patience in order to capture the perfect shot with the right lighting. The photographer has to be quick when seizing the moment as it certainly doesn't last forever. Nature doesn't have time to wait around! It is essential for the photographer to have an excellent technique and an extensive knowledge of various photographic processes in order to achieve the desired effect. Some photographers even spend several hours taking photographs before feeling satisfied with the final image.

Among the most famous landscape photographers, you will find Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Philip Plisson, Jim Bradenburg, Yasmin Mund, Paul Nicklen, Franco Fontana, Nathalie Annoye, Nick Brandt and Andreas Gursky. They have each developed their own unique and distinctive style.

Nature is the ideal subject for exploring a particular pictorial style. Many artists have ventured into the art form, travelling the whole world looking for outstanding images. These include the sociological and philosophical questionings of Rero, the poetical images of Aida Pascual, the light-filled beaches of Massimo Vitali, the world viewed from above by Pawel Mlodkowski Vincent Munier's mysterious wolves. Discover these and many more in our selection of landscape photographs and discover our flower photography or mountain photography.
