Some of my favorite landscape photographers. Each of these links to a photographer’s website; you can poke around inside any of these links to see more great images.

William Neill shoots beautiful landscapes, mostly in the western U.S. The still life close-ups are also fantastic. This links to his blog which he updates regularly.

Michael Kenna. Kenna is a British landscape photographer who now lives in the western U.S. His website is chock-full of great images and he updates it often. Spend some time on this site and you’ll definitely get inspired.

Bill Schwab. Schwab shoots the most beautiful, serene landscapes. He still shoots film! And he  does lots of very old school printing (palladium, collodian).

Brian Kosoff. Former New York still life shooter who decided to step outside. The site is beautiful, all black and white, but not updated recently.

Rolfe Horn. Horn shoots beautiful, iconic black and white images. He used to assist Michael Kenna (listed above) and it shows in his choice of imagery. The most interesting section of the website is the ‘Technique’ tab in which he talks openly about his printing process.

Josef Hoflehner.   Austrian photograher who has photographed worldwide.

Michael Frye. Another western U.S. shooter. Frye’s blog is a lot of fun to ready and you’ll learn something about shooting as well. One of my favorites to visit for all the great and varied information.

John Paul Caponigro’s web site. This is the link to a scrolling set of photos. Not all of these are traditional landscapes.

Igor Svibilsky. A very recent discovery. Ukranian photograher now living in New Jersey.

So check these guys out and let me know what you think. Any of this appeal to you? For photographic inspiration, you want to find people that touch your soul.

  1. William Neils Dawn on Lake Louise is stunning, the colours are exceptional, I would love this on canvas for my bedroom.

    I’m not into landscape photography but your post encourages me to try as such. Hope to see more of your post. I would love to learn more!
