LA-based photographer Neil Shapiro embraces simplicity in both life and art, blending clarity and precision into a minimalist aesthetic. With 25 years of experience as a Director of Film Photography, he filters the Californian landscape with a keen cinematic eye.

Shooting with a wide-open aperture, he creates a shallow depth of field to highlight focal points and employs cropping and Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) for added depth and atmosphere. Shapiro is naturally drawn to repetitive natural patterns that display an almost mathematical precision, yet differ in small variations. The ripples on the surface of the ocean, the clustered leaves of an agave plant, the petals of a flower, or the wave-like undulations of sand dunes seem almost identical, except for tiny imperfections that make them preciously unique.

Although aesthetically stunning, Shapiro’s photographs address wider-breadth issues. Facing the rapid decline of our Earthly home-lakes drying up, forests ablaze, and ailing trees–he offers eternal passages of nature’s magnificence. By forming an emotional connection with the viewers, he hopes to inspire them to love and preserve what we still have.
