Gorka López, 1978. Industrial engineer, father of two, landscape photographer during free time, weekend warrior.
My love for nature and outdoors led me to landscape photography in 2007 when I bought my first dSLR. From that very moment I got instantly hooked and photography turned into a true passion that has grown exponentially over the years.
Self-taught, I started reading everything about photography I could get my hands on, and soon I discovered that the learning curve of this art form is endless. And this is exactly the most engaging aspect of landscape photography: the continuous challenge! There is no excuse for not trying always to improve your work and become a better photographer.
During the last few years I've had my pictures published in many printed magazines, won a few international photo contests and taught some workshops, but what really thrills me are all the experiences that come along with this passion: exploring new places, being out in the wilderness, the special moments I get to witness, the people I meet... without these things I would never have begun taking pictures.
Welcome and thank you for having a look at my photographic art. I hope that you enjoy my photographs as much as I have enjoyed taking them. – Gorka.
