Outdoor Photographer Magazine profiles QT Luong


The opening feature in the March 2013 issue of Outdoor Photographer Magazine is an article about my nature landscape work. Read the web version.

I am honored to be called a “modern master” and “artist” by such a prestigious magazine, and to have been interviewed by a writer as perceptive as William Sawalich, who distilled the wide-ranging interview into a cohesive story. I happened to see my copy yesterday, on the birthday of Ansel Adams. He gives the general theme of the March 2013 issue, and is mentioned enough in the article that it is almost a fitting tribute.

To complement the article, I’d like to share a few images which did not appear in the final version of the article, although they are discussed in it. Here is one version of the “nighttime Lower Yosemite Falls image”:

Here are the “two very similar views of Death Valley and Denali” which helped start the National Parks project:

I feel that this image, part of the initial edit – and of the conversation about the ease of finding new images – was a good counterpoint to the Tunnel View image since the later is such an iconic location while this one is so little visited that I did not encounter a single person during the springtime hike from the Valley floor to the base of Ribbon Falls and never saw this composition before:

    Congratulations, QT! You set a great example for dedication, humility and a love of the landscape. The honor is very much deserved.


  2. Congratulations QT! You know I’m a big fan of your national park project. The magazine article looks absolutely beautiful, can’t wait to read it.

  3. Ben Chase says:

    Congrats QT – This is well deserved!

  4. Daren Le says:

    A-MAZING Work QT! Congratulations on this honor! Your landscape work truly INSPIRES!

  5. As always you tell an interesting story in images. Thank heaven they are profiling you. Some of the work they feature is a bit oversaturated and even gaudy sometimes, whereas your photographs are always classic, solid and timeless

    Amazing scenes. Really beautiful landscape photos. You are truly dedicated and really an inspiration. I also want to take pictures like you. You have set an example that it can be done. The clarity is amazing. Thanks for the lovely pictures.
