Want to know one of the biggest secrets in the photography world? Extreme elements often make for extremely beautiful photos. Thankfully (or not, depending on how you look at it) wintery weather provides no shortage of opportunities to go head to head with mother nature to take some breathtaking photos.
In spite of the cold weather, the need to dress in layers, the amount of batteries you need to carry and that freezing shutter button – winter’s low-angle light creates amazing opportunities for both indoor and outdoor photo shoots. For proof, look no further than these photographers who cover some of the world’s coolest (and coldest) corners like: New York, Lapland and China. They all braved the cold to take outstanding pictures – that they proudly shared on their Wix online portfolio.
While we can’t help bring back the feelings in their finger’s any faster, we hope to warm their hearts by showcasing these beautiful winter photos:
Marcos Alberti is an NYC based photographer from Brazil (yes, people read your bio, Marcos!). His work shows how the monotonous (almost black and white) winter background creates a great canvas for colorful elements. The only limit is your fantasy, exactly like when you were a kid. Isn’t it time your snow fort came to life once and for all?
Joao Pedro Jesus’ images of simple elements like a fallen tree or a dripping icicle allows you to experience the majestic beauty of winter without leaving the warmth of your computer screen. Even if nature doesn’t have a face to show emotions, we were moved by these stunning images.
A self-proclaimed black & white addict, it’s no surprise that Julien Sanine would treat us with stunning images of wintery streets. His favorite trick? Using water in all its forms – vaporous, snowy or icy – to create dazzling reflection games. Clearly, this is a unique opportunity that only this cold time of the year can offer us.
These images from frosty Lapland prove that even the most severe weather conditions cannot keep true best friends apart. If you liked White Fang as a child, you’ll feel the warmth of Gaelle Lunven’s work.
Boris Joseph’s photos take us to a remote corner of the world. In the Chinese province of Sichuan, Buddhist nuns prepare to spend the winter in an isolated valley in particularly rough conditions. Without any access to running water or electricity, the nuns of Yarchen live in camps they built by themselves from planks and waste material. Nevertheless, their colorful huts and smiles shine even more than the snow behind them.
Jodi Nasser is a travel & lifestyle photographer who is always on the go from one destination to another. On her latest trip to New York City, she manages to catch the city that never sleeps in a moment of ominous zen. Now its inhabitants (and us) have some time to lay back and absorb the beauty of an urban landscape dressed in white.
