Chris Beight - New Zealand
Hi I’m Chris, I was born In New Zealand and currently live in Sydney, Australia running my own businesses as a strength and performance coach, photographer and adventure travel consultant.
I'm a runner, climber, barbell lifter-uperer, hiker, athlete, mountaineer, nerd, self-proclaimed comedian and a naturalist (not to be confused with nudist). I like dressing up as a superhero sometimes, pretending I'm a dinosaur, I shave my legs and have been known to cry in Pixar movies.
Photography is a huge passion of mine and enables me to combine a unique and creative skill-set with my huge love of the outdoors.
In my eyes, the perfect combination!
Mikkel Beiter - Denmark
I'm a landscape, travel and wildlife photographer from Copenhagen, Denmark.
My great passion in photography is within the genres landscape and wildlife photography. To achieve my goals and to challenge myself I often spent my holidays travelling to different parts of the world with my camera and the journey has just begun!
I have spent a great amount of time in Africa to get close to the African wildlife and when it comes to landscape photography I really enjoy the vast and beautiful landscape in the Arctic Circle, specially the Lofoten archipelago in northern Norway.
Beside Norway I've been to the Faroe Islands and Iceland to catch this special northern Europe/Scandinavian vibe.

I like to create, and photography is my personal way to be creative. Although it may sound like a banal, when shooting, I just trying to show the world as I see it: its universal beauty and sometimes subjective ugliness, its complex simplicity and often simple complexity.

I started my photographic journey four years ago and I believe that being pro might be a part of my future. My main camera is Pentax K-1 DSLR but I also use film cameras, both 135 and medium format.
Nigel Cooke - Northern Ireland
After over 10 years as a professional sports photographer, at the end of 2015, I returned to my first passion for Landscape Photography.
I'm never more at home than by the sea or in the woods, and I love how the process of landscape photography has allowed me to slow down and really appreciate the world around me.
A new adventure starts in January 2018 with the arrival of a camper van when, along with my wife and cat, we plan to travel indefinity exploring both the UK and Ireland as well as further afield.

Didier Demaret - Belgium
I am a self-taught amateur photographer living in Belgium. I discovered photography in 2006 and was immediately attracted to black and white landscapes (even though I'm starting to try colour too.)
Sometimes high-key, sometimes low-key, soft light or contrast, I like minimalist compositions where I play with lines and shapes.
Belgium is a small country without big landscape, so I learned to look for the smallest detail, the least subject to compose my photo. The majority of my landscapes are made in low light in rainy weather
or fog with long exposure times that create a mysterious atmosphere.
Rob Drissen - Holland
Rob Driessen, for some known as Ruby Blue was born in 1973 in Nijmegen, Holland.
Rob Driessen works in the subliminal space of the photographic. His art explores extreme opposites and strives to merge them into a single, cohesive expression.
His works are beautifully bizarre, often evoking a sense of insecurity and danger in the observer.
It's the ambivalence, mystery and intensity inherent in the works that generates an unsettling energy that he finds beautiful and challenging. He strives to create images that simultaneously represent loneliness, solitude, harmony, dissonance.

Landscape Photography for me has been somewhat a rebirth, In 2015 I did a brief stint in a graphic design course I then decided pretty fast that it wasn't for me but I had always liked art and wanted to do something creative so to cut a long story very short... I picked up a camera after seeing beautiful images of my local area, I didn't know much on how to use one but I just knew what I wanted to do was Photography and to make beautiful images of my own.
Over the last 2 years, I've worked tirelessly to do just that.. make images I'm proud of & always try to push myself creatively and just enjoy doing it.
Davie Hudson - Scotland
My name is Davie Hudson and I am from Dundee in Scotland.
I like to describe myself as an Organic Photographer as my photography is very mood driven which often results in the images having a darkness that may feel a little uneasy.
I don’t always go for the perfect shot but rather the shot that evokes the most emotion from myself and my clients, I find the more of myself and my feelings that goes into an image the better it is received. I have a fascination with the united persistence of water and therefore it plays a big part in what I do.
I am currently the head of The Society of Scottish Landscape Photographers and am often seen as quite surly but on the inside I’m grinning like an idiot.

Joe Valencia - New jersey
I use photography not only as a means of self-expression but also as a way to reconnect with nature and my inner spirituality. Whether I am in the woods, or on the beach I can get lost in my thoughts and the splendor of nature.
My inspiration comes from the natural beauty around me and a deep desire to share it with the rest of the world. I feel privileged to witness a sunrise over the ocean or an egret in search of its next meal. Like most landscape photographers, Ansel Adams is one of my greatest influences.
Hamed Valizadegan is a NASA scientist who enjoys photography as much as science.
