    <When it comes to landscape it is that it's all been done before, that doesn't mean though that you can't put your own style on it, or do it differently, or make sure that you are photographing special moments.<

    No it hasn't all been done before. Photography's a babe in arms, not even weaned. There's no reason to keep iterating the same thing.

    There are dozens and dozens of landscape photographers making the same boring, interchangeable pictures. So what. The same is true in every field of picture-making. Popular music -- lord, all those British bands distinguishable only by production values. All part of the same wave of thoughtless production and consumption.

    Josef's work has sparked my interest in many of those places he's traveled. I don't know how they find those places. He's got a nice variety of work too. I'd love to see it in person.
    Michael Levin has a bit of work on display here in L.A. His prints are the only ones, of those mentioned, i've seen up close. Stunning.

    I don't think there are 'a lot', I would say a handful. maybe 5 people or so, not more. IMO. however there 'a lot' that try to create beautiful stuff.

    While I would have agreed with you earlier, I think there are quite a few more than that. Up until a little while ago I really didn't look that much at photography via the web. Then I started getting a lot of requests for links and such and became amazed at how much talent is out there. Today I went to one of the sites linked in this thread and thought the work quite good. Similar for sure. Then I went to his links and found many more that were fine photographers working in a similar vein. And in their links more.... pretty humbling.

    I think it is best to stay away from looking at too much work!

    I've just gotten back from Hoflehner's exhibition in the Atlas gallery, London. With majestic prints in various sizes, its certainly worth a visit... though I do wish they used different lights/glass in the gallery - the reflections really bugged me.
