Bio
Because I was born and have lived my entire life in the American West, the landscapes, people, culture and values of the West have helped shape who I am today. I feel at home in the mountains and canyons I grew up exploring.

As a photographer, I continue exploring the wild places I fell in love with as a child. Through my images, I want to foster in the viewer an authentic sense of attachment and belonging to the environment. I make images of landscapes that connect me to these places.

Greg Russell Tomorrow on my blog, I'll have my favorite images from 2012, sort of a retrospective on the year, both in terms of images, and in lessons learned. This is one late addition, though...I made it yesterday, and it illustrates the value of visualization in the image making process.

Growing up within sight of this monolith, I've wanted an image for years, and yesterday the light finally presented itself. It's easily one of my favorites of the year. I hope you enjoy it too.

Greg Russell Another new image from a recent trip to eastern California. I had forgotten how much I missed this place, and was fortunate to have some great light...some of my favorite light.

juanli sun The light is very delicate indeed, and great job to get the subtle textures of the cloud.

Greg Russell Another new image; I've been wanting a manzanita image for quite some time now. I love the way a manzanita's wood curves and moves, and the way it flows. While this isn't exactly what I was expecting, I feel there's a ghostly, ethereal feel to this one. Hope you like it!

Greg Russell Its been too long since I've shared anything new here on Whytake.net. I hope to change that in the next couple of weeks as I have some new work to show you. Here's one of a very tight slot canyon I found while wandering around on the Colorado Plateau a few weeks ago...hope you enjoy it!

Jackson Frishman This one's a beauty, Greg! That sliver of light on the left balances the whole image, the blown sand provides drama,, and the ripples make the dunes seem vast and endless.

Greg Russell Today on my blog, David Leland Hyde shares some of his thoughts about the state of creativity in landscape photography in an essay called "Make Your Own Tripod Tracks."

http://www.alpenglowimagesphotography.com/blog/2011/12/make-your-own-tripod-tracks/

I'm also writing about the importance of sense of place in landscape photography on his blog, in my essay, "Moving Past the Repertoire."

Hope you enjoy them!

Stephen Gingold May be browser issues? Both have worked for me.
Great posts by both Greg and David. I would guess most here already share these convictions but reads such as these are always worth the time and make for good shares.

Alister Benn Yip, I got into Greg;s article today. Two super reads, enjoyed and commented vocally on both :-)
