This is a collection of Landscape Photography by International Award Winning Photographer Scott Reither. With over 9o images from California, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, this is a diverse collection of landscapes by one of todays most exciting emerging photographers. Whether photographing vast landscapes with the panoramic format, or using long exposures up to several hours in length, Scott showcases a refreshing eye for composition and technique.
In the Field Notes section, the viewer will read firsthand Scott reminiscing about the making of many of his favorite images throughout the book.
Demonstrating a keen and conscientious eye in both color and black and white landscape photography, the common thread throughout is Scott Reither’s compelling use of long exposures. The landscapes vary from nature to urban and at times include a human or animal presence, but one thing is apparent, Scott’s passion is most evident while capturing time in the still image. Reither invites the viewer into his world of extended time with exposures ranging from a few seconds to several hours, where people morph into ghosts, water appears still and tranquil, where the paths of planes and the tracking of our planet against the dark sky is seen. With compositional arrangements showing a clear sensitivity to his surroundings, one almost forgets that nothing is staged, and only an intuitive recording of time unfolding is at work. His work has been recognized and awarded in the industry, most notably by the International Photography Awards (IPA), with 23 awards over the past four years.
