Today I want to share with you the shortlist of travel & landscape photographers that inspire me. I love seeing their new photos, and I get plenty of ideas from seeing their work and post-processing techniques.
Inspiration in photography is key, in my opinion, and these guys provide me with plenty 🙂
Elia Locardi / blamethemonkey.com
Elia is known for being “location independent,” as he and his wife don’t have a home in the sense that we all know of. They live on the go and travel the world, spending a few weeks or months at a time in every location.
I really love his photos, and I can’t wait for his upcoming video course with Fstoppers. They traveled the globe, going to some of the greatest locations to photograph and putting it all into a video course. Elia summed up the experience of creating this course on his blog.

Trey is the first one I started following during my travels in 2012. I was really into HDR when I got started, and Trey was known as the HDR master, and I repurchased his HDR tutorial in the day. He also has the biggest social following online.
Trey has some amazing images, but he also has some that are a bit “too much,” in my opinion, when it comes to HDR, but that doesn’t take away from his amazing portfolio and great lifestyle of traveling and taking photos everywhere he goes.
Serge Ramelli / photoserge.com
A french photographer that has a great Youtube channel with plenty of weekly tutorials. I learned a great deal about my current post-processing workflow from his various tutorials.
Tomer Razabi / tomerazabi.com
Tomer is the only one on this list that I know personally. I attended his landscape photography course a while back and a couple of photography workshops with his new company, Wild Travel.
Erez Marom /erezmarom.com
Erez Marom is probably the leading landscape photographer in Israel, even though most of his photos come from worldwide thanks to his various workshops. He shares his workflow and post-processing techniques on his blog and various known photography magazines.
Daniel Kordan / danielkordan.com
The very recent addition to the landscape photographers I follow. Daniel and Erez have a workshop in Iceland that they host together, and that’s how I came to learn about Daniel and his awesome work. It seems like Daniel is always on the move, and he says his home is the entire world.
Terje Sørgjerd / TSO Photography
Terje has created some of the most spectacular time-lapses I’ve seen, and my favorite is The Mountain. Not exactly sure where Terje is since he pretty much dropped off the radar over a year ago and didn’t post any new photos or movies on any of his social channels.
With more than 400,000 fans on Facebook, I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering when he will make his comeback 🙂 Please take a few minutes off and watch his amazing time-lapses on Vimeo.
Who Inspires You?
Feel free to share with me via the comments below who you drive inspiration from when photography. I’m always looking for great photographers that I don’t know of yet, so any addition would be greatly appreciated 😉
