The Brilliant Upland – Landscape Photography by Matthieu Parmentier
French landscape photographer Matthieu Parmentier has created a portfolio of outstanding vistas during his travels. His compositions are powerful – dramatic lighting combined with strong focal points instantly transport you to another part of our world.
Matthieu describes his work below:
“I’m a French guy from Normandy addicted to travels and outdoor activities. I became interested in photography few years ago because I wanted to bring home better pictures of all the places I visit whenever possible.
I became serious about my photography about a year ago when I decided to stop “taking pictures” while traveling and began to focus on “making pictures” of all the landscapes I encountered. Graduated neutral density and polarizer filters were packed in my bag and my winter traveling in Western USA National Parks in February was like a small “revelation” about the possibilities in photography.
My focus is almost exclusively landscape pictures because photography is just a part of my love for outdoor activities, traveling and landscape watching.”
