Some amazing images taken with an old style Large Format Camera.

from Terra Galleria.ComAnother turning point happened, ten years ago, when I learned to use the large format camera. In the process, I happened to create, considered by some to be the primary technical resource for large format photography on the web. The more contemplative approach that this type of exacting and demanding photography promotes, and the extremely detailed photos it produces are perfect in conveying the visual richness of the landscape.

In 1993, I set out for a monumental nature photography project that had not been completed by any photographer before: documenting all of America’s National Parks with a large format camera. I explored each of the Parks in depth, making several visits. My years of experience of outdoor adventuring proved useful when exploring the backcountry of many Parks in a variety of ways ranging from hiking in trail-less terrain with a 70-lbs backpack – needed to survive in the wilderness while operating a 5×7 camera -, to paddling kayaks, canoes, and scuba diving.

Although I am still creating new images for what will most likely be a lifetime pursuit, by the summer of 2002, I reached the goal of visiting each of the 58 National Parks at least once when I set up my camera on the Great Kobuk Sand Dunes in Arctic Alaska
