Always Searching For The Light

Sandra Kourah Fine Art Landscape Photographer

There is a quote that I have hanging on my wall and I reference it often:
“Discovery is seeing what everybody else has seen but thinking what nobody else has thought.”

I am an outdoor photographer, visual storyteller, and light chaser. My style of fine art photography is ethereal and contemplative visual storytelling, evoking a sense of light and meditative stillness. It is a visual story of the words that flow through me as I stand still, inhale, listen and feel the stories of nature, her magnificent light, and her gifts of beauty around me.

A diamond in the rough is how I see the world. I look through my lens and words come to mind, from each wave that washes ashore to embrace the grains of sand that provides me my sanctuary, to a blazing sunset, to majestic mountain terrains, or to a new day’s promising sunrise. Being in nature, experiencing the meditative quiet stillness that fills my soul as I create a photograph, is what I hope will evoke in the viewer as well, that light, that inner calm, and stillness that nature offers to us in all her glory.

    “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”


    “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”


    “There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
