Born in Devon, UK, but now living in London, Jon states about his growing up: “Though I’ve spent none of my adult life there, I still consider Devon and the westcountry my spiritual ‘home’.

After we found out that he only uses Photoshop for slight tweaks, we were even more impressed. So much so that we got in touch with the photographer to ask him a few questions about his creative process and to see if he might share with us some of his tips. Read our interview with Nadav, below, while enjoying some never-before-seen photos as well as some behind-the-scenes shots.

A Lesson in Ballen Photography. Teen Nature Photography - Kento Mizuno. Ansel Adams. Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist.

Ansel Adams

His black-and-white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely reproduced on calendars, posters, and in books.[1] With Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. Adams primarily used large-format cameras because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.

Adams founded the Group f/64 along with fellow photographers Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston. Early life[edit] Childhood[edit] Adams was born in the Western Addition of San Francisco, California, to distinctly upper-class parents Charles Hitchcock Adams and Olive Bray Adams.
