Fellow Photog at Big Sur

Posted by Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 7 April 2009 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I met Alan Kepler of Sonlight Landscape Photography http://www.sonlightphotography.com/ and his beautiful Olympus medium format film camera while shooting at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur. We had a fine time exchanging ideas and experiences as the sun set. Take a look at his web page if you get a chance, there is some just wonderful stuff there.

The new web site is live. http://monterey-john-photographer.com/

I love the 'near silhouette' you took of Alan, and the bit of 'sonlight' on his back is perfectly fitting! His site is beautiful; I especially loved his snow-covered tunnel view at Yosemite!

Well done, John. I love silhouettes of fellow photographers. I also very much appreciate site recommendations. I am constantly trying to get people who have these great sites to join us in aminus3. When they belong to aminus3, I end up following them daily.

How fun to have another photographer to hang out with! I love this shot, although I think I might have a little painful camera envy. His work is absolutely amazing. Thanks for the link!
