All images by Steve Gosling. Used with permission.

Photographer Steve Gosling is a true black and white artistic photographer. To him, the gear is only secondary to his creative vision. This is evident in his choice of mediums. He’s used pinhole cameras, large format, and even works with Phase One cameras and lenses. His affinity for the artistic side of photography started when he was really young.

But if you’re a lover of landscapes, you’re surely going to enjoy his photos and his thought process.
