Hi! my name is Ferdinand I'm a digital artist working as an Art Director in game and outsourcing company. Beside doing paintings i also love photography most of my images are landscapes. I really like shooting landscapes because it's gives you the freedom and have the chance to explore your world around you and there's no limits on how you visualize your creativity.  And it's a great source of inspiration and reference that i applied on my paintings. I traveled occasionally just to enjoy the pleasure and to embrace the awesomeness of our mother nature.

Here are the sample of my landscape photos.

And please visit my Flickr gallery for more landscape photography,…

Thank you for viewing and have a nice day!...
