A year in images

I have always admired Ansel Adams, his work and his life style. Traveling the continent creating images that no one questions as art. With a similar enthusiasm I loaded cameras, lenses, tripods, and camping gear into a small Toyota this year and drove coast to coast. Un-like Adams, who photographed mostly National Parks. My goal was to avoid those “Dark Green Spots” on the map…  mostly, and shoot what presented itself, “Man with a camera”, so to speak. 20,000 miles and 20,000 images, a year in images. Thanks to the many people that have supported my work.

 

 

About mikebeiser

"A freelance photographer with a photojournalistic style" I especially enjoy photographing people and the experiences we share with others.  I started my photographic training not behind the lens but in my high school darkroom. By the time I picked up my first quality camera I knew what made a superior image. This early experience gave me an interesting perspective on finished images. ​ Classically trained in film and darkroom work, I enrolled in several classes and workshops during my early years in college. Later I returned to Washington State University and studied cinematography and video production.  As an Outdoor Educator at the University of Idaho, teaching climbing, mountaineering, white water sports, winter sports, and organizing expeditions around the world, I have always documented these experiences on film and video. Documenting climbing expeditions on the highest mountains and paddling in the deepest canyons on earth - in the harshest conditions - has given me the photographic confidence I can get almost any shot and do it well.  My images have been published in magazines, books, used in marketing and advertising, as web content, and have illustrated many multi- media presentations. I have also enjoyed instructing outdoor photography workshops for many years.  ​The photographic medium still and motion, is the most powerful form of communication in the world, If done well and with purpose. Like a good musician, I try to practice taking images every day and this allows me to see the world a little different.
