There are few people working in landscape photography today that have more influence on the contemporary scene than Marc Adamus. His images are some of the most dramatic, inspiring, and simply beautiful.
Under normal circumstances, Marc spends many months of the year alone, or running his Photo Adventures in the mountainous wilderness of Alaska and western Canada. He has also explored Greenland, Patagonia, and, with me in 2015, the Tibetan Himalaya.
However, as we are all locked down right now with our workshops canceled or postponed, Marc and I had a rare opportunity to sit down over video chat and discuss his unique approach to his images and creativity.
Something most people don't know about Marc, a larger than life figure and influencer, is his deep love for the landscape and the humility with which he enters these stunning areas. This is probably the only free online resource where he opens up honestly and sincerely about himself and his work.
He talks about having difficulties in school and learning using traditional methods. This has led him to improvise and find his own way of doing things. Little did he know back then that he would inspire so many others around the world to approach image-making with such passion and technical mastery.
