LEN SALTIEL

    Len Saltiel spent his career in the financial services industry in various management positions. Upon leaving the corporate world, he became an enthusiast photographer. Len began his interest in photography in the early eighties after acquiring a GAF film camera. He later transitioned to Minolta film cameras. Len took a hiatus from photography for about 15 years dedicating his time to family and career. Len re-embraced photography when Nikon introduced the D100. It was his first endeavor into digital photography. After spending a few years learning the digital format, he now shoots with a Nikon D700 and a Sony NEX-7. Since leaving the corporate world in 2007, Len has spent considerable time improving his photographic skills.

    Len's photographic subjects are primarily landscapes and cityscapes. Most of his images are from his travels through the US, Canada and Europe.

    Len has been fascinated with the father of modern photography, Ansel Adams. His favorite Adams' quotes are:

    • "There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs."
    • "Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer and often the supreme  disappointment."
    • To the complaint that there are no people in his photographs, Ansel responded, "There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer."
