MY LIFE AS A LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER

My History

Experiences as landscape photographer

Isabella explored and studied the boundless sceneries in the Alps, with a special regard to the Italian Dolomites.

Her need to visit and discover new places and unknown environments brought her to the Far East of Russia, in the Kamchatka peninsula, where, together with two local guides, she ventured into pristine and dangerous nature of those territories, among forests and volcanoes.

Other destinations visited by Isabella include Lofoten Islands, Canary Islands, Iceland and Namibia.

Being a landscape photographer

Isabella Tabacchi is a landscape photographer based in the north of Italy.

Her photography and art are the result of her need to explore the natural places and capture these landscapes from her personal point of view. Isabella always looks for new ways to see the different environments and looks for leading lines, elements in the foreground, natural frames. By the use of luminosity masks, in the editing phase of her work, she improves the mood, the essence and the emotions captured.

WHAT DO I LOVE ABOUT LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY

Landscape Photography is not only taking a picture of an amazing view; it’s about capturing the essence of a landscape and translating the feeling of this into images.
