Photograper Spotlight: Andreas Trauttmansdorff

Every now and then, I come across a photographer whose work really captivates me. I mean REALLY captivates me. There is a certain old world-ness to the work I am featuring today, almost like they were taken from another era....I have always felt like I was born in the wrong era anyway so this is probably why it really appeals to me! These are the kind of pictures that just kind of jump off the page and have that "wow" affect. As often as I look at pictures, its so exciting to find pictures that genuinely excite me so when it happens every now and then, its worth talking about! Well, with me if happens a little more than every now and then because I do look at so very many pictures so I like to take note especially more lately as to who it is behind the lens, who is the genius at making that picture look so darn good.

Behind every beautiful subject is the hands and eyes of a very skilled photographer at creating the very best shot. I truly believe that. I am in awe of Andreas' work. (Yes we are on a first name basis and no, I don't know just sounds impressive to call him by his first name) Besides did you see his last name, I am not even going to attempt to spell it again!  His work runs the gamut from food, travel, decor and people to weddings, gardens and motor and water sports. He is very versatile,  travels the globe for his work and has offices based in New York, Chicago and Toronto. I just love looking at his photographs and I think you will too.

Warning and disclaimer...... IF you are hungry, proceed at your own risk, these pictures might induce serious and I do mean serious pangs of hunger! I think this guy is seriously talented..what do you think? I could stare at his photographs all day long.....just fabulous!  Do you have a favorite photographer? Do you have a favorite picture in this post?  Would love to  know which! Click here to see more of this talented photographers work.

Didn't I say that his work is beautiful? Kind of has the ability to take you away for a minute or two.....I love it, thats the power of pictures. I think he is really good at what he does. Hope you enjoyed and hope you have a wonderful Friday!
