Finding the inspiration within you

Finding the inspiration within you
by Ralph Nordstrom

ralphnordstrom02aNature and art are what I grew up with and what I love.

ralphnordstrom02bMy casual approach to photography became more focused when I took my first workshop in 2006. From that time on I have been on a journey – a journey of personal discovery. Because, as my photography evolves, as it improves, I learn more about myself. I’ve gained a lot of technical skills along the way, both in the field and in the darkroom (don’t worry, I shoot digital but I still call it the darkroom because it does the same thing and people don’t freak out like they sometimes do when I say “Photoshop”).

ralphnordstrom02cBut the technical skills are just a means to creative expression which is what I really focus on. They are what I call the Creative Vocabulary that allows me to communicate what it is I have to say about the world.

ralphnordstrom02dAnd discovering new things in the world, in nature, and expressing them through my photographs is where I am on my journey today. The journey will never end; the destination is not clear and changes as I change. But then, isn’t it the journey and not the destination that’s important?

« I Photographed The Vastly Diverse Architecture Of The Netherlands »
By Tobias Gawrisch

tobiasgawrisch02a“Although I’m a german Photographer living in Germany, I’m luckily only living around 60km from the border to the Netherlands.

tobiasgawrisch02bAnd it just so happens that I’m an architectural photographer as well, visiting the Netherlands ever so often.

tobiasgawrisch02cThe modern design and architecture of the Netherlands have always astonished me! It seems that every little town has its own special design. Whether it’s a bridge, a skyscraper, a hotel or some other architectural masterpiece – everywhere you look you’ll find some clever and beautiful modern designs in architecture.

tobiasgawrisch02dI haven’t seen most of this country’s beauty, I’m sure! But what I’ve seen so far makes me want to visit and photograph the Netherlands time and time again!”
