My Philosophy about Fine art photography
Welcome and thank you for having a look at my art. These photographs are a result of my deep passion for the wilderness. It is the culmination of efforts of over a decade when I ventured into the open air to capture the essence of nature's diverse ecosystems. Photography has shaped every aspect of my life and I wish to take you all on a journey through nature at its picturesque best.
We are well into a new and exciting generation of photography that is unbelievably more limitless than ever before. Digital age has allowed us to overcome many of the technical challenges that photographers had to confront in the past. This is undoubtedly an exciting time to be a landscape photographer and my whole effort here is to capture the great outdoors in as much detail as possible at a high resolution.
As a photographer, I realized early on that a camera alone can never capture Nature as we observe it with all our senses. My goal is to display the rich experiences I have had in this multi-dimensional world as best as I can within the limits of this two-dimensional medium. I generally don't add or remove anything significant from my images, and there is never an absolute definition of what I saw in an image to begin with. Beauty is a thing of perception. Each one of us sees images differently. Nevertheless, I believe a great photograph is not merely capturing the locations, lights, colours or contours; instead it is about fusing the vision of an artist with the landscape.
To me the most important quality of any piece of art is it's ability to evoke an emotional response. Selecting right places and moments to take a photograph and conveying those emotions is far more difficult. My camera is merely a tool to capture the images. However, a great tool cannot make a great artist! My processes involve meticulous attention to detail along with work in today’s digital darkroom to fine tune, optimize and adjust contrasts, colours, tonalities, luminosity, etc.
I love exploring and capturing the spirit and soul of the wild. Wilderness photography is infinite. And without wilderness, I would have never begun this adventure of taking pictures. I don’t need to travel far, really. These images were taken in the western parts of North America and Canada . It’s not about where you are, but how you see.
I want you to know how undeniably precious these lands are for the future. We need wilderness; now more than ever. Sustainable development is crucial to balance our lives as we progress and become more industrially advanced. There is a certain sense of serenity and freedom that comes when we are in the lap of nature. And we need to preserve it. I visit the wild to experience something greater than ourselves, and I hope you will too. Thank you for taking this journey with me today.
