Finding Myself in the Stars

Finding Myself in the Stars
by Don Whitebread

California, USA – I spent the summers of my youth wherever my father’s work as a geologist took us, usually camped deep in a desert mountain range.  Watching the slow change of light and weather during the day, and the flow of stars across the night sky was my best entertainment. This background fueled my interest in photography, and has drawn me to remote locations throughout my life. I chose to photograph this series using only natural light, and rarely moonlight, to show that faint, diffuse starlight that few people really see any more.

Beautiful Landscapes by Lior Yaakobi

Beautiful Landscapes
by Lior Yaakobi

I’m a passionate self-taught Photographer from Israel. I used to live in Boulder, Colorado, for several years and recently moved back to Israel. Photography becomes a real passion for me, mostly in the last couple of years. I travel a lot and always combining my travel hobbies (treks and mountain climbing) with my photography passion. Landscape photography is what attracts me the most but I’m trying to open myself to other types of photography. I’m always trying to give my additional view or look at my photos and to bring something that will tell a story of the place. I’m working for an international software company and currently living in Kibbutz Givat Haim Ichud. Been using Canon 7D with 10-22 lens for most of my work but recently I’m working with the Nikon D610 and the 16-35mm for landscape with the “support” of the 70-200mm lens.

Polar Regions | Joshua Holko

Interview with Joshua Holko

joshuaholko10a joshuaholko10b joshuaholko10c joshuaholko10d joshuaholko10e… Although I studied fine art photography and photojournalism formally in my early years, it was not until many years later that I could honestly call myself a full-time professional nature photographer. The interest in photography was always there and I was pursuing it as often as I could. Even from a very young age I would carry around my father’s tripod on weekends. That’s where my passion really first started.

The transition to full-time pro was to take many years though. Part of that transition was also finding my niche and understanding what it was that I most wanted to photograph. When I fell in love with the polar regions I knew I had found my niche. …
