José D. Riquelme

About José

Epson International Pano Awards 2023 Open Photographer of the Year

José D. Riquelme, a passionate landscape and night photographer hailing from Murcia, Spain, has embarked on a fascinating journey into the world of photography. Despite his extensive background in graphic design and printing, his photographic journey began just 8 years ago. In his initial two years, challenging the conventional notion of photographic locations, he used his mobile phone to perfect compositions in seemingly unphotogenic environments.

It was in 2017 when he took a further step in his photographic journey by acquiring his first professional camera. The reason behind this investment was his impending trip to Iceland, a place where the beauty of the Northern Lights required the precision and quality that his mobile phone couldn’t provide. Despite initial resistance to learning how to handle a DSLR camera, José soon discovered that this decision would significantly change his life, and in time, he would be deeply grateful for taking that path.

Max Rive

About Max

An adventurer from Europe with a camera. Born and raised in the flat country of the Netherlands, Max Rive visited the high mountains of Switzerland for the first time at the age of five. Max started taking photos in 2008 just to document a mountain trip he took between studies. He took photos to remember the trip, to show others how cool the trip was, and to have something more to do than just hike. As a landscape photographer, Max gradually became more serious as he started sharing photos on the internet and became inspired by the work of others. After almost losing his life in an airplane accident, and witnessing the major earthquake in April 2015, he continued traveling around the world to Chile, Argentina, Greenland, Sweden, Scotland, Norway and New Zealand. Max Rive is the International Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017.
