Profotos Staff Evaluation:
When most people think of nature photography, they think of images of wildlife, or mountains, or rivers, etc. The field of nature photography is one of the most competitive fields in the medium, which has become very saturated with thousands of great images during the past 20 years. Very few images in this field are "new". Most have already been done by someone else.
However, there are those very few photographers around, who have the ability to change the face of the nature field of photography and create something completely new. Alexander Sofin is one of these photographers who took our staff by surprise with his incredible images of nature, which are completely unlike any we have reviewed before.
Through the meticulous sandwiching of several positive images, Alexander produces dream-like images, which you will not find anywhere on Earth. These images are the ideal renditions of nature, in its most fragile and exceptionally beautiful form.
Alexander is a true master at his craft, which goes well beyond any documentation we can attempt to construct within this evaluation. The number of photographers/image-makers who have the ability to produce these types of images is probably below 100 worldwide. This shows how difficult it is to produce this type of ideal image.
Our staff was in complete awe when we reviewed the work within Alexander's portfolio. Never before did we see this type of work within a photographer's portfolio. The ideal situation for any photogrpaher is to be able to create exactly what they want - Alexander Sofin has this ability. Wow! This is a master at work.
