PHOTO INSPIRATION DAY 6 - LARGE FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHER (Ben Horne)
Over the years US Landscape Ben Horne has been a big inspiration for me. Even though I do use very different gear than him, I've learned a lot from him; especially when it comes to patience and scouting for the best location.
Ben is shooting a large format 8x10 wooden camera that he carries on long hikes in some of the US National parks; quite an achievement on itself. His favorite two parks are Death Valley and Zion which he has visited on a multiple occasions over the last years. Unlike a lot of other photographers he's not wild of going to different places all the time; he rather specializes in one place!
His YouTube channel in which he documents his photo adventures with the large format cameras has a high production value and is very popular. I especially like how he looks for the best shot without using the camera; scouting is a huge part of his workflow and great lesson for many of us!
One of his more popular videos from Death Valley can be found below:
