Wild and Lonely Places

By Dave Schiefelbein - September 19th, 2006

The work of adventure photographer Dave Schiefelbein is marked by his eye for the authentic. A photographer both of outdoor-recreation and the backcountry that drives it, photographer Schiefelbein's work is guided by his long-term fascination and attraction to wild places. Through images he attempts to capture wilderness not only in its glorious splendor, but also in its quiet moments and subtle details. Schiefelbein brings a cerebral approach to photography, working to record on film what writer Edward Abbey called the "extraordinary beauty of wild and lonely things." His work has appeared in numerous books, calendars and magazines including Sierra, Audubon, Forbes, Outside, Backpacker and Sunset. Schiefelbein's photography is represented by Getty Images.
