15 Beautiful Pictures of the Dolomites by Jon Baker
- By: Emily Hildebrand
Jon Baker is a photographer based in London, England. He first picked up a camera aged 8, and became fixated with taking pictures of the family pet cat. However Jon’s early enthusiasm for photography was sadly forgotten and he somehow became an accountant! However at the age of 23 Jon took a career break to spend 18 months traveling the world, and during this time he rediscovered his early passion for photography, albeit with a different subject matter. He fell in love with nature and mountainous landscapes and became obsessed with returning to special locations over and over again to capture their natural beauty in perfect light. Jon believes that patience and waiting for the right light are absolutely crucial to creating great images. Jon has developed a particular photographic style, mostly focusing on panoramic images taken with a medium format film camera.
In October 2010, Jon first visited the Dolomites (Dolomiti / Dolomiten), which are a mountain range in north-eastern Italy, and was overwhelmed by the region’s spectacular beauty. He spent 6 months making a photographic study of the area. Here are fifteen of of those beautiful images.
