Stevin Tuchiwsky – @stevint
Stevin Tuchiwsky is a member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective. As an outdoor lifestyle photographer capturing images in adventure, sports, and landscapes, there’s never a dull moment on his Instagram. We love the landscape below, made on the Sony Alpha 7 II and the Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master. It’s a great example of making an interesting landscape by honing in. So often we make landscapes with ultra wide lenses, attempting to really showcase the grandeur, and while these images are great fun, it can be more interesting to only show a small snippet of the scene, as Stevin did here.

One thing she’s learned is to follow your own vision. She explains, “Shoot for yourself first and foremost. It’s so easy to get caught up in imposter syndrome, or by comparisons, or following a trend, but as long as you are always shooting what captivates you, you will love it.”
