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.
