If You're Gonna Go, Go Big!

Most professional photographers amaze me. I envy their talent and their creativity. The two photographers that you will see in this post are no exception. Their photographs are amazing but what really impresses me is their scale! Or, the sense of immensity that comes through their photography!! After viewing the videos and the images I think you will understand why I placed these two guys together...

--------------------------------------------------------------

"As a completely self-taught artist, master photographer Peter Lik (www.peterlik.com) started in Australia and soon expanded his vision worldwide. Huge panoramic photographs of landscapes showcase the brilliant colors and elegant, spiritual terrain in Nature. These images speak for themselves and leave the casual viewer breathless. The truly conscientious observer will experience fine art. When you come to Peter Lik Galleries, you will be able to experience a kind of natural lifestyle, accented with exotic high-end furniture and sculptures.

Once you are ready to purchase, each fine art image comes in several different sizes. Clients are able to choose the frame and liner for their piece. Peter Lik Galleries also provides shipping worldwide. Peter Lik is the most awarded photographer in history and remains a leader in fine art photography. His quest for the perfect shot never ends. He explores this world driven by a vigorous determination to express his vision of beauty and his profound respect for nature.

In 1997 Lik took the courageous step of entering the competitive world of publishing with the birth of Peter Lik Publishing. He began with specialized panoramic postcards and the range of small hard cover books that have become his trademark. His first large format coffee table book “Australia - Images of a Timeless Land” is a stunning showcase of Lik’s most emotive images. Peter has since gone on to publish an additional 3 coffee table books including 'Spirit of America' and 'Las Vegas and Beyond'. Sales for these books have now reached over 1 million worldwide.

The success of his publishing company provided Peter with the platform to fulfill a lifelong dream of opening his own galleries selling limited editions of his work. He opened his first gallery in his hometown of Cairns and due to overwhelming demand it was followed by the opening of another 3 galleries throughout Australia."

"Waimea Bay shorebreak surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two, Clark Little (www.clarklittlephotography.com) has gained nationwide recognition for his photography with appearances on Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and many local news stations across the U.S.

It all started in 2007 when Clark’s wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall. Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out. “Clark’s view” is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be able to experience safely on land, while studying one of Clark’s photos.

Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel. Since the recent stir of Clark’s work, his images have been run on the Today Show, ABC World News Now, Paris Match (France), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines) magazine, Surfer magazine as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and overseas."



(note the hand coming out of the water...that's Clark Little!)
