Peter Tellone, Landscape Photographer
Peter Tellone is a photographer whose photos emphasize the effect of light and perspective on an environment. His landscape locations vary from the ocean to the vast desolate deserts around California.

Landscape photography is about catching the environment in the best conditions possible. This includes having intriguing composition to gain the attention of the viewer, taking the photo at the correct time of day, and using perspective to add depth to your photo. Peter Telline does this really well as his photos are always interesting and beautiful to look at. He’s able to place the elements given to him to create an aesthetic composition.
