Peter Nestler | Best in Show, Scapes

2020 Showcase Top 24 Winner

About Peter

My wife and I live on the road full-time in a truck camper. I’m originally from Alaska and spend as much time up there as possible, as it will always be my favorite location to photograph.

Over the years, I have broken 12 Guinness World Records for rope skipping and have traveled the world performing at various venues. This has allowed a lot of unique opportunities to photograph locations I was visiting for performances (many of which I only got out to see because I brought my camera with me). I love the diversity of landscapes.

I fell in love with nature as I wandered through the forests and mountains of Juneau, Alaska, and started photography as a way to document the beauty I was seeing.

As I traveled more around the world, I wanted to take higher quality images that really expressed the dynamic nature of each location. The variety of places I visit really keeps me engaged as I try out different techniques.

I’m mostly self-taught, but have picked up rough ideas on technique from a wide variety of photographers (which I then hack away at in the field until I figure them out).

As a NANPA Member

I’ve been a NANPA member for about three years. I originally joined for the discounted equipment insurance, but have come to love the mission of the organization.

I’ve had numerous images place in the Top 100 and 250 in the past two years of the Showcase.
