MARK METTERNICH - markmetternich



A recent online article described Mark this way: "An immensely talented and intensely driven veteran landscape photographer with an astonishingly deep and accomplished portfolio, Mark has expertise that extends from advanced techniques in the field through to the production of museum-quality prints. He has developed many unique processing solutions that emphasize simplicity and efficiency and offers an extensive collection of excellent instructional videos on his website."


Having spent almost two decades as professional landscape photographer Mark Metternich has spent most of his time living mobile on the road, and his great passion for living on the edge combined with fine-art landscape comes through in his work attracting a broad audience around the world.

Mark's fine art, limited edition landscape gallery prints are found sold to a wide array of people, businesses, and organizations around the world.  His approach to capturing and processing nature is extraordinarily unique unlike and his fine art pieces are highly collected.

Many years Mark has been on the road for over 300 days a year capturing the beauty of creation and leading a unique brand of adventure photography tours across the U.S., and abroad.  His workshops are highly sought after and sell out year after year.  In addition to leading photography workshops, Mark produces post-processing training videos, teaches post-processing (via Skype online screen sharing) and is a freelance contributor to a number of photography publications.

He is a legendary digital imaging specialist and Master Gallery Printmaker who loves teaching as much as he enjoys producing fine art. When not on location shooting, he produces post processing/print work for a wide variety of fine-art clients as well as travels for public speaking and teaching engagements.


Humanitarian work is dear to Mark's heart and throughout the last 20 years, he has had a special connection to the work of Good Samaritan Ministries. Through this counseling based 501C3 organization Mark has traveled to Uganda many times and on one specific trip, he stayed over three months.

A favorite remote location I seem to have pioneered photographically about 10 years ago and occasionally I take my Ultimate Southwest Workshops here. 

I have yet to see it photographed by anyone, and I have never seen another person out here after more visits than I can remember.
