His style is very distinct. Adamus is able to capture amazing light and brief but magical atmospheric moments which can be found all over his portfolio. Many of his pictures are imbued with a sense of the epic and grandiose. Adamus’ style emanates from a focused intent on pursuing all the unique moments that drive the magic and power of the wilderness. He typically spends weeks, even months imbedding himself in the landscape as he aims for the perfect shot regardless of season and weather.

Adamus likes spending most of the year immersing himself in outdoor locations taking photographs, instead of spending time indoors in front of a laptop. For instance he has shot pictures while on a month-long solo trips across the Alaska Boundary Range, while inside a scorching canyon in Utah as well as under an enchanting aurora in the Yukon.

His zest for life in general shines through in his own words. “I love showing people the wonders of nature I have found and sharing with them the special relationship photography can have with all around us. My business in photography as well as all my life is designed around the principle and everlasting desire to get ‘out there’ as much as I possibly can, to the tune of about 300 days per year.”

I am a freelance photographer who is no stranger to smudged lenses, long hours in front of the computer, heavy camera bags (and the back aches that ensued) and missing lens caps. If you know what I'm talking about, you probably have as much love and passion for photography as I do.
