Photographer in the Spotlight: Alex Noriega

Photographer in the Spotlight: Landscape Photographer Alex Noriega

This week we chose to showcase landscape photographer Alex Noriega from  Portland, Oregon.  Alex has an awesome array of landscape photographs that are bold, inspiring and imaginative. Since I am from a very wet and flat state, I was instantly captivated by his wonderful mountain scenes and extraordinary desert scenes. He has an amazing eye for the compositional elements of each environment and he has the ability to really make those elements pop in his landscape photograph. We hope you enjoy Alex’s landscape photos in this week’s Photographer in the Spotlight. Check back each day to see the 7 photographs of Alex’s that we selected to spotlight and don’t forget, you can nominate yourself or your favorite photographer at: PI Photography and Fine Art.

Alex’s  Artist Statement and Bio

alex-noriega-bioAlex is a full-time professional photographer, specializing in landscape imagery. At just 28 years old, he has experienced a rapid rise as an emerging talent, since moving west from his hometown in Wisconsin years ago. Known for his dramatic, yet subtle style, his images have been published in numerous magazines and books, and his work featured on a number of websites, along with his writing and interviews. Alex is currently based in Los Angeles, California, though he can be found leading landscape photography tours and workshops across the western US. When he’s not in the field photographing, he teaches his unique methods of post production online. His images are available as fine art prints, as well as for licensing.

Today’s Spotlight Photograph: Landscape Photo – Primavera

Primavera by Alex Noriega on
Several months ago PI Photography and Fine Art rolled out with a new series of blog posts called Photographer in the Spotlight. For a full week we will showcase the bio, artist statement and seven images of a selected landscape and nature photographer’s work that we found most interesting. Our hope is that our audience not only sees the beautiful work created by these passionate photographers but also learn a little about the artists behind the pieces. There are so many wonderful photographers in the world and a lot of the time we only see the photograph, not the artist.  So we thought it would be nice to show appreciation for the artist, for their dedication to their field, and share some of their work along the way.

Think about it, if it wasn’t for the artist then there would be no art to admire and honestly, life would be pretty boring without it! So show your appreciation to them for spicing up your life and showing you their beautiful perception of the world. Share their stories and captivating work for others to experience.

If you would like to be showcased or know a landscape or nature photographer who should be, please submit the info through our contact us page: Photographer in the Spotlight Submissions
