As a landscape photographer, I’m always looking to translate what I see and feel about a location or moment into a finished print that can be shared with others. For me the paper is a crucial component, and I choose them very carefully mindful of how they either emphasize or complement what I’ve tried to convey in my image.
Canson’s line of papers provide a wide palette to choose from, and I’ve experimented with everything from their highly textured matte papers to state of the art baryta Papers which I love for my black and white prints.
