I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.

My philosophy as a landscape photographer has always been to blend traditional techniques from the past with the technical advances of the future.

I always consider it a  great honor to have my work hanging in someone’s home.

  • Venice Beach sunset. Shot on my Linhof Technorama 617 using medium format Fuji velvia film. During the 5 minute exposure, the lifeguard finished his shift and closed the shutters on his tower. Look closely and you can see the blurry ghosting effect of the lifeguard during the long exposure. #landscape #seascape #beach #sunset #california #usa #lifeguard #lacounty #venice #venicebeach #filmisnotdead #film #fuji #velvia #linhof #technorama #617 #120film #mediumformat #formatthitech #landscapephotography #johnchapplephotography
