Where do you get your inspiration from?
I draw most of my inspiration from the landscape itself. One of the beautiful things about traveling and exploring is the exponential cascading effect it has on being inspired to continue traveling and exploring. When I am photographing a place, I always see new angles, new locations, new mountains, new lakes, and new rivers. And this is what keeps me brimming over with ideas for places to go and things to shoot.
In terms of people there are so many outstanding landscape photographers these days that I couldn’t possibly list them all, but there are a few standouts that spring to mind. In general I am drawn to adventurous photographers who are pushing themselves to explore and find new locations. Guys like Paul Nicklen, Jimmy Chin, Paul Zizka, and Cory Richards are endlessly inspiring.
