Your Landscape and Nature Photography Inspiration

Photography Inspiration

In a previous Post, I encouraged you to “Photograph What Inspires You“.

Today’s Post is related to that one, in that, I am now asking:

“What Was Your Landscape and Nature Photography Inspiration?”

My first influence came to me in 1992, after watching a TV program

that featured two nature photographers demonstrating how to

photograph a waterfall. I was fascinated by the fact that these

two guys were being paid to do what they obviously loved doing.

The way I saw it, they were being paid not to do a job, but to have fun!

  That was my “Aha!” moment. I knew right then and there that I wanted to

No! – I had to be a nature photographer!

How To Resources for Photographers

There are numerous photography resources that I refer to on a regular basis.

Please click on a heading, in blue, to be brought to that resource’s page. I very highly

recommend each and every one of them.


Adorama, among other things, is a very popular camera store in Midtown Manhattan

– New York City. They have an extensive online how-to photography video library. The videos are

excellent! One of the instructors, Mark Wallace, has a natural gift for clearly explaining any subject he covers and

is a favorite on this YouTube Adorama Channel. I count myself among his many, many fans.


The link above brings you directly to their Photo/Video classes. However, Creative Live offers

how-to videos on Art & Design, Music & Video, and others. You can purchase these videos and watch them,

whenever you wish, online. If you subscribe to the site, you will receive notifications of totally free videos for one-time

viewing, sales, as well as information on newly available classes. My favorites are the ones taught by pro photographers,

where they move from the class-room setting, into the field, for some hands-on shooting.

Digital Photography School

This is one of the most comprehensive sources of helpful, how-to information I’ve found online.

Just about every topic is covered. I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed. Trust me,

check out this site, and I’ll bet it will quickly become one of your favorites, as it is mine.

Ken Rockwell

It never ceases to amaze me how this one man, Ken Rockwell, can put out such an enormous amount of information,

including extensive gear reviews.  Prepare to be amazed!


New York Institute of Photography

This is where my official pro photography education began. Whether you are new to photography,

or a seasoned pro, I think you’ll agree they offer a very good, detailed course on all the photography

basics. If you are considering photography as a career or hobby, I strongly recommend you jump in.

Please Comment with whether you are already familiar with any of the resources

on this list, and whether you like them or not. Also, please share with all of us,

your favorite photography resources links.

Till Next Time!……………..Tom
