Unlike most big-shot photographers out there, Alexandre Deschaumes is self-taught. It’s not enough for him to just climb a mountain, set up his equipment and take the shot. A true artist, he tries to get a ‘feel’ of the landscape he’s capturing on film before actually taking aim with the lens. The results as you can see, are nothing short of breathtaking.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
