I see myself as a conservationist first and then a photographer. I really believe that you only capture a subject in its best state when you are passionate about that subject.
Therefore I fell into landscape photography from a passion I have for our natural world and I use photography as my vehicle to try and influence others to help protect it.
I am new to the field of landscape photography and I have so much to learn about the art. I find myself becoming more and more obsessed with it where I am always looking at the sky and the interaction that light plays on subjects. I am absolutely fascinated and in awe of light and I consider it the most important ingredient towards producing a successful image.
I gain enjoyment, not only in capturing images, but also pondering and observing other photographer's work where I get most of my inspiration from. And if there's one single piece of advice I would give for others looking to improve it would be to study the work of the masters. Learn what it is that you like so much about their work and then go about trying to include these elements in your own.
More of Ricardo's photographs can be seen in the Landscapes Section at the Gallery of Better Photographs and on his website.
He also shares some of his skills and experience with us in the Top Tips section.
In all of the images that Ricardo captures he aims to represent scenes with no evidence of human intervention. As such he hopes his images demonstrate how awe inspiring our unblemished natural world is and motivates you to join him in helping to preserve our remaining wild places.
We are delighted to feature Ricardo's work and look forward to the possibility of doing the same for you. If you would like to be considered as our featured photographer, just post one of your images on our FaceBook Page with the title - "Featured Fotos".
