A Year In The National Parks

For the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service, I had a dream assignment. I traveled to and photographed all 59 (at the time) of the U.S. national parks in one year on assignment for National Geographic. While other Nat Geo photographers were spending up to a year on assignment in a single national park, I was racing through them at breakneck speed. It was a whirlwind year flled with more beauty and nature than any one person should ever get to experience in such a short timeframe.

Sometimes during this project, I felt like it was completely unfair to take credit for any photos because it was truly nature that was doing all the heavy lifting.

Paysages par David Köster

David Köster est un photographe de paysage, animateur photographique et auteur de livres basé en Allemagne. Dans ses images, il met en scène des paysages sauvages et épiques. Avec des perspectives dramatiques, une imagerie atmosphérique et l’utilisation systématique de la lumière naturelle, Köster crée des œuvres qui apparaissent souvent comme des peintures plutôt que des photographies.

Pour ses images artistiques, David a été récompensé par plusieurs prix internationaux. Ses œuvres sont principalement utilisées par les agences, les éditeurs et les institutions de tourisme. En tant que photojournaliste, David publie régulièrement des récits, des articles et des images dans les médias imprimés et en ligne du monde entier. Depuis 2015, David dirige également des ateliers de photographie de paysages. En janvier 2019, son tout nouveau livre sur l’art de la photographie de paysages est publié par la maison d’édition allemande Humboldt.
