As an amateur photographer and outdoor enthusiast, I love a great landscape shot. How many times do you see a beautiful sunrise or a unique set of clouds and wish you could capture the moment? I know I do quite often. Although there are tons of talented landscape photographers out there, Peter Lik is one who surely stands out.

Living in Aspen, I am lucky enough to have access to one of his gallery locations here in town so I have seen many of his works up close. Because of his unique photos I highly recommend seeing them in person as pictures on the web will do them no justice.

When you see a print of his you immediately think there is a light eminating from behind the image or that it has been heavily photo shopped. Both of these statements are false. Lik uses a unique approach to processing and printing his 35mm images using special paper to create a saturated and illuminated effect that makes the print look back-lit.

The other thing worth noting is his ability to market the Peter Lik brand. All of his galleries have a uniform design to them that use a lot of natural woods and elements that take you closer to nature. The absence of white walls and the rustic feel of the gallery brings the viewer closer to the image. Even his choice of frames are unique, rugged and matched to the specific image.

The images don’t come cheap however, but if you have the money to spend, his pieces would be a nice addition to any collection. I myself only posses his calendar, but hey it’s a start!
