Sources Of Inspiration

For the second instalment of “Sources Of Inspiration” I’m excited to feature Greg Russell and share with you his beautiful images and thought provoking writing. Greg is a landscape photographer based out of California who specializes in images of the American West. I first met Greg online a couple of years ago and was immediately drawn to his images. Soon after, I was introduced to his blog and found another side of his work that was equally as impressive. 

In a day where the majority of photography related articles are technical related, Greg chooses to focus mainly on the why over the how. His words showcase a strong connection with the land and always leave me thinking deeply about my own work and how I interpret the environment around me. His philosophical style of writing touches on not only image making, but also creativity, life and the personal decisions that are so important in creating unique works of art. Greg does a brilliant job delivering his message and his words always leave me with a strong sense of place.  His images are extremely well crafted and display a contemplative thought process that ultimately defines his personal style. I know that whenever I see one of Greg’s new images that it has been created through a love, appreciation and understanding of his subject. His intimate compositions of the world are refreshing on the eyes and provide a truly unique experience for the viewer.

As artists, we all go through high points and low points. I know that the times I’m lacking inspiration I can turn to work such as Greg’s to remind myself about how beautiful the simple things in life are. I certainly recommend visiting Greg’s website and blog to view more of his images and writing. I’ve included links to a few select posts below to get you started. While you’re there, make sure to subscribe to his blog, you will be glad that you did!
