I’m Eugene Theron, a landscape photographer primarily focussing on the mountainous regions of the world.
I feel privileged to be based close to Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, one of the most dramatic and beautiful mountainous regions in the UK, and to be able to explore this unique landscape on a regular basis. Being in the mountains is my passion, whether it revolves around taking photographs, climbing, trekking or combining all three activities.
From reading a National Geographic article about Patagonia when I was a child, to seeing other photographers work, to taking part in all the mountain activities I love, I have always felt inspired by these remote and brooding landscapes. While these subjects are my primary photographic interest, I have also expanded my portfolio into other aspects of nature and the coastal environment.
Being a landscape photographer I have found that filters are an integral part of my setup. They allow me to have a lot of creative control in the field and facilitate my ability to generate awell-balanced image. I find that this makes the post processing workflow easier and less invasive, resulting in more authentic images.
