Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Death Valley. This is one of my favorite locations to photograph in Death Valley. There's nothing like witnessing a sunrise from the top of one of these dunes. The shadows create stunning compositional possibilities which lend themselves to black and white. (ISO 100, 24mm, f/22 @1/13 sec)

Reflections are a photographer's gateway drug to a different perspective. ;)

The 2014 Death Valley workshop is complete, and it was definitely a success. We had such a great crew and so much fun. Honestly, I think I just luck out with having great people join us. Here's one of my favorite photos from Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. 

(35mm lens w/ red filter, f/16 @1/90th)

Story
Tagline
Professional photographer and author capturing the world one frame at a time.
Introduction
John Batdorff is an award-winning landscape and travel photographer and a nationally recognized authority on black and white photography. Splitting his time between Chicago and Montana, John enjoys the solitude of the countryside as well as the bustling city, finding subjects to photograph in both places. He also loves to see the world, having traveled to Africa, India and Europe, as well as 49 out of 50 United States.

He especially loves black and white photography because of the strong compositions, textures, and timeless feel. Growing up in the newspaper industry, he “learned to visualize things in black and white,” and he has used that ability to create his own monochromatic style including high-contrast, highly-textured images.

John’s work has been featured in the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Travel Photographer and Digital Photo Experience. 

John loves the outdoors and traveling, and sharing images with others. His most important message is to “just have fun.” “If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, what’s the point?” He leads workshops and mentors other aspiring photographers. “Finding a mentor is a powerful way to get real feedback from someone who can objectively assess your work. There is simply nothing better for improving your photography and developing a style.”
