About the Artist

Manuel R Johnson

Photographic Artist

Fine Art, Landscapes and Nature Photography


MANUEL JOHNSON’s fine art landscape and nature photography is a passion. He works in color and black and white, formerly with 6x7, 4x5, 8x10 film. Today, he photographs with state-of-the-art Canon digital cameras and a wide assortment of Canon lenses. Most of Manuel’s landscape and fine art photographs have been captured with the 50 megapixel Canon 5DSR, yielding large prints with exceptional detail and color. His wildlife photos are primarily taken with the blazingly fast Canon 1DX Mark II and 600mm II lens.  


Manuel searches for the photographic equivalent of the emotional impact evoked by wild and mysterious landscapes. He finds this equivalent in the hidden geometry and design beneath the surface of the natural world that yields images of beauty, simplicity, and abstraction. Manuel loves the wildest corners of the West, including California, Colorado, and Alaska. 

Almost two decades ago, Manuel’s ongoing search for new, magical, and poetic art led him to the great state of Alaska. Alaska is a place of incredible beauty and adventure. Manuel is an avid adventurer and wilderness photographer who enjoys exploring remote corners of Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage and Denali’s interior. This has become his greatest photographic adventure and undying passion.

Today Manuel's home base is Tampa, Florida. From this base, Manuel has always tried to spend his free time searching for, exploring, and photographing new landscapes, designs, and wildlife. Photographing the Florida wilderness and shorelines has allowed him to experience Florida’s tropical wilderness in a very intimate way. 


The work of Manuel Johnson is held in several private collections throughout the US. We hope you enjoy his view of the natural world.
