Peter Lik “Panoramic Landscape Master”
I found it quite a difficult task to find a photographer that would inspire me, beyond just one photograph, but with an entire portfolio. Since I’ve taken photographs, on and off, with varying degrees of amateur equipment for the past ten years, time and time again, I’ve always been drawn to bright colors, landscapes, and water.

Riding the high of that huge accomplishment along with also selling his first million dollar photograph that same year titled “One” he sprinted into the public’s consciousness by starring in his own TV Show produced by NBC called “From the Edge with Peter Lik.” In his TV show he went back to what he did 1989 with a camera crew in toe this time and traveled the country searching for that elusive perfect landscape shot. During this time he didn’t give up on his business ventures either with now 13 galleries and growing across the world, all supplied by Lik USA, producing the prints and framing them to his very high standards.

Notes
It’s been a long time since I’ve written a paper Professor Campbell, 10 years or so to be exact! I hope I did ok! I was confused with the MLA citing in text stuff, not sure if it’s needed if only two sources?! Both sources had some identical information as well which would have made it difficult!

No plagiarism is intended! If you would like me to go back and put in text citations please let me know!
