Our April Photo Lab gallery features the work of local photographer, Aaron Bieleck. You can see more of Aaron’s work on his Flickr page.
To me, being a photographer is more than simply making images. It is about exploring something… a landscape, an object, a person’s personality, and documenting it in an artistic way.
What inspired this photographic series?
My love for backpacking and the outdoors inspired this series.
Who/what is your biggest photographic influence?
Like a lot of landscape photographers, Ansel Adams was my first and perhaps biggest influence on my photography. The time and amount of detail he factored into his process is what made an impression on me.
What is your favorite piece of photographic equipment?
What is your preferred photographic subject matter?
Landscapes. I like to include people, as well, to give scale to photographs.
