Why Do You Do Landscape Photography?

Why are we doing landscape photography? There can be many reasons.

In this hauntingly beautiful new video coming from Nick Page, he explains why he loves landscape photography. One of the reasons he highlights is how the focus is always on the positives. It is about why he enjoys a certain location or why he loves a specific scene. By spending time focusing on the positive, happiness and optimism follows along. He is focusing on what he likes rather than what he do not.

This is something I can relate to quite a lot. Being happy despite the “bad” weather pushes me towards the feeling of miserable is such a powerful effect of creativity. I am in that “zone of flow” where I am being challenged but not so much that I give up. As Page points out, it becomes therapeutic. Almost like meditation.

Check out the beautiful video above from Page and let me hear why you love landscape photography. I do not think there is only one simple answer, so do not hesitate to write a long comment. I am very interested to hear about it, as it might also point out aspects of why I do and love landscape photography, which I have not thought about.

Because I figured how to make a living from hiking, taking pictures and avoiding civilization for most of the week, all at once.

Nick got inside my mind on this one as he gave the best reasons possible to do landscape phorography. When you finally move past the fame and fortune reasons you free your creativity and begin producing work you can be proud of. Great short video.
