Ladies of The Land

Today’s post is dedicated to women landscape photographers. All of today’s artist/photographers and their images, came from 500px and an article that has been recently published, called Women Landscape Photographers. I personally  know some incredible woman photographers, but I have limited the names and images I am sharing with you to those in the article in 500px.

I began as a little boy studying great landscape photography, when my Mother would bring home copies of Arizona Highways Magazine from the waiting room at the TB hospital she worked at.  I wondered why there were no great woman photographers. I mean, even as a little boy it seemed as though lady photographers would tend to bring something different to the finished picture.  Was it not considered lady like to make pictures?

I wrote an article some years ago stating that until woman began to realize that they need to go out alone if they are going to get to the level that men do at outdoor photography, they will forever be looked at as photographers who are not serious about the craft. All of the great male photographers, landscape or otherwise,  go out alone and shoot pictures.

Well, the years have passed and more women not only go out alone, but many are traveling alone when necessary. More and more women are earning income, including a full living from outdoor photography.

As is usually the case, I was right all along (lol), ladies with cameras are adding much to all photography, but especially to landscape photography. Every one of us who examines and exalts today’s landscape photography, are richer for their contribution.

Please enjoy these fifteen incredible artists and their images.

The famous Bixby Bridge in Big Sur plays host to this stretch of Hwy. 1 on the Central Coast of California.  If you've never been, it's worth your while to take a nice, long, leisurely drive from San Francisco down to Santa Barbara.  You'll see some of the prettiest and dramatic coastline with small, rural towns along the way.  Go in the winter and spring months when everything is green, wildflowers are blooming and you are less likely to encounter fog.
