Landscape photographers who are committed to visual artistry share habits and values that enable them to produce personally rewarding landscape images on a regular basis.

From curiosity to courage, these virtues address the entire range of concerns and practices that are important in creative development and in mastering the craft of landscape photography.

Erin Babnik’s dedication to the medium of photography evolved through years working as an art historian, producing photographs for her dissertation and her own teaching and research archive, and working on assignment throughout Europe and the Middle East before transitioning to wilderness landscape photography.
