José RamosView profile page
José Ramos is a landscape photographer and doctor from Portugal, currently living in Lisbon. He started shooting fourteen years ago and this passion grew so strong that this was the art he has chosen to express himself and pay homage to the beauty and power of the world which surrounds us. He divides his time between working as a photographer and a doctor specialized in Psychiatry, which implies great dedication to be able to develop his skills in both areas. So far this has been possible through very strong commitment and discipline, as well as at the expense of sleeping hours, which would only be bearable when there's intense passion about both subjects.
He currently leads Photo-Tours in Portugal, which in his opinion has the best seascapes in the world, along with so many other captivating landscapes yet to be discovered by the world. His images have been published several times in National Geographic printed magazine and in many other international photography magazines, and won international photo awards. They are also available for sale as fine art prints to all over the world. Beyond image making and teaching, José has also been collaborating with many international photography brands.
Conceptually speaking, José always tries to offer his personal thoughts, experiences and reflections about his images, as the thinks the image creation process never ends with the camera shutter press, being rather continued by what is evoked by the image when it is re-viewed at home, and later carried on by the emotions of the final viewer who, once again, re-creates the image inside him. In his photos, the act of raising awareness about Nature and the need to protect the environment is of utmost importance, being such aspects frequently linked, through embedded concepts and stories for each image, to the fragility and power of Humankind in an ever changing and mesmerizing world.
Albert is a Dutch photographer with an extreme passion for landscape photography. He aims to capture places and certain moments in the best way possible by using his own vision and unique style. His style consists of strong vibrant, sometimes fairytale like images in which he expresses himself. Albert has a background in Design, Video and Animation. He has worked for himself his whole life and has as a Master Degree in Multimedia & Entertainment Technology.
Albert loves to travel. Next to photo tours and workshops he likes to explore the world on his own or with friends. He has a passion for visiting the most beautiful spots in the world, whether known or unknown. Challenging himself is what keeps him motivated. Albert loves planning his shots carefully.
He does this with great detail to make sure his efforts have the highest chances of success. He sometimes plans days, weeks, months or even years to get that particular shot he wants. Challenging himself combined with planning and writing a story of the whole process is Albert’s specialty. He is always looking for new challenges and adventures. He is able to find beauty anywhere in the world: from misty mornings in the forests minutes away from his home to rooftops of the highest buildings in Dubai to remote locations in Iceland or the US. Next to taking photos, Albert also likes to teach and write about photography.
He occasionally writes for the most well known Photography magazines both on - and offline. Along that he has worked with many brands in the photography industry and is an official Sony Ambassador of Imaging.
His work has been featured in some of the biggest news outlets & magazines worldwide, like TIME, National Geographic and Adobe.
