What stunningly beautiful photographs of nature! The Oregonian article mentioned that Adamus didn't really get immersed in photography until he started using a digital camera. The digital medium allows you to create images that would be very difficult, if not impossible, to capture with a film camera. Multiple images of a scene, at varying exposures, can be combined with image-processing software to create landscapes like Adamus' sunset scenes - where foreground & sky are each at the proper exposure. From his subject matter, it is apparent that Adamus' has a high tolerance for staying out-of-doors for prolonged periods in cold, wet, windy weather. This guy is the Ansel Adams of digital photography.

It is always interesting to see someone with such passion, energy and talent get some well deserved attention.

The sad truth of photography, especially nature photography, is that there are thousands upon thousands of other photographers attempting to succeed in the same niche. Some are very, very good shooters too.

I hope Marc is able to build some momentum, and turn that into a business success. This is the really tough part, and the lack of business skills have led to the downfall of many ambitious photographers.

For my business, I spend about one third of my time shooting, the rest is marketing and sales. I wish it were the other way around, but for now this is what works
