Pho­tog­ra­pher Adam Gibbs is driven by an in­her­ently op­ti­mistic vi­sion. He has an in­nate abil­ity to trans­late nat­u­ral pas­sion and beauty into mes­mer­iz­ing im­ages that in­vite the au­di­ence to ex­plore nat­u­ral grandeur through his lens. Adam stud­ied pho­tog­ra­phy by the iconic land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers Pat O’hara, Charles Cramer and Jack Dykinga. Since grad­u­at­ing in 1991, his work has gar­nered nu­mer­ous awards and has been part of ex­hibits and pri­vate col­lec­tions around the world. Most re­cently he was awarded the grand prize at the photo com­pe­ti­tion held at the Van­cou­ver In­ter­na­tional Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val in Fe­bru­ary.

Adam is a pho­to­graphic sen­su­al­ist. While lin­ger­ing on tex­ture and colour, his im­ages por­tray a soft­ness and sense of com­fort, yet there is an es­sen­tial re­la­tion­ship with light to es­tab­lish the mood of the im­age. “Light is the key to pro­duc­ing an im­age that can re­lay a sense, a feel­ing.” Adam draws in­spi­ra­tion from the work of other out and into na­ture is his ul­ti­mate mo­ti­va­tion. Be it a mo­ment of per­fect light, the eu­pho­nious sounds of na­ture, deaf­en­ing quiet or the com­pany that he is with, he has a re­mark­able abil­ity to cap­ture scenes that draw you into the im­age. His 25 year cat­a­logue of work demon­strates his love and awe for a chaotic yet del­i­cate nat­u­ral world.
