About the Photographer

Welcome to Arturs Barzdis Fine Art Landscape Gallery! Ever since childhood, I’ve admired the beauty of nature and always tried to spend time in nature, relaxing or traveling. As time went by, I increasingly dreamed to capture the natural views I was seeing – the early morning mist, the red sunset sky, the falling stars during dark winter nights, and all the living creatures in the thick forest greenery. In 2008, I purchased a Nikon D200 camera and started to acquire digital photography. This engagement soon became my favorite and most passionate activity.

For the last few years, I spent my time practicing image processing software and techniques, purchasing new photo equipment, improving my photography skills and traveling as much as possible. I am currently shooting with Nikon D800E and Sony a6500 cameras and the following lenses: Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm F/2.8 G, Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG HSM Art, Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 SP Di VC USD, Sigma 35mm f/1.4GG HSM Art, Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D, Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G, Sigma AF 180mm f/3.5 EX HSM APO, Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM. In 2017 after I bought the DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone, aerial landscape photography has become my most beloved activity.

While the camera captures the surrounding visual world, it can not perpetuate the feeling of being there – in the field and surrounded by the natural beauty. In the post-processing stage my main goal is to add back this lost part to the photos, so that they are not only visual pleasing but also allows to feel the emotions I had when I was there. For image processing, I mainly use Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop as well as Google Nik Collection and Macphun Luminar plugins.

Enjoy looking at my images!
