My desire to do landscape and nature photography is all about clearing my mind and focusing on expressing myself through my work without distraction. This is one of the primary reasons why I prefer to photograph locations that don’t attract tourists. In most of the places I’ve been outside of the city, I’m the only photographer around while everyone else is a local jogger, hiker or cyclist if there is anyone else around. Compositions are a clean slate to work with. There are few tripod holes to fill. No one to tell me what app or camera I should get. It’s all about the work.
