Mike Knight, known as @mikeyknighty on Instagram, calls himself an outdoors hobbyist photographer and is based out of Somerset in South West England. “I love to travel the world with my camera and capture moments that showcase what this incredible planet has to offer,” he said. Talking about this specific photo taken in the Final forest of Madeira, Knight commented that “the charismatic Laurisilva trees coupled with fog and morning light helped to create this surreal fantasy-like scene.”
Noel Casaje, or @noelcasajephotography on Instagram, is an award-winning photographer and guide that shot this photo titled “Rhapsody in Purple” during a trip to the Oregon coastline. “The challenge was finding wildflowers with a background that would complement them,” Casaje told PetaPixel. “It took quite a bit of hiking, scrambling, climbing bluffs, a few scratches here and there, but I did succeed in finding some comps.”
George Lin, found on Instagram as @geolio, is an educator and designer. Lin said that he enjoys spending his time “exploring and photographing the world (and sometimes other worlds) to better understand them.”
Jonas Hafner, known as @aufzehengehen.de on Instagram, is a full-time medical doctor and photography enthusiast. “In the beginning, I was mostly taking landscape pictures but nowadays I would rather call myself a portrait photographer as I really enjoying working with people and being creative,” Hafner told PetaPixel. His favorite images are ones that “stand the test of time and focus on a person’s natural beauty.”
