Landscape Photography by Tom Shapira | About


My name is Tom, and I take photos. Landscape Photos. Israeli Landscape Photos.

Israel is a beautiful country. It has beautiful landscapes, that range from desert, to forests, a Mediterranean shoreline, and even snowy peaks in the winters. Having that kind of diversity - within the reach of a few hours drive - is unique, and can only be taken as an open invitation to enjoy nature in any way possible.

Unfortunately, Israel is a small country. In nature terms - it means that everything is small. Man-made objects slowly become almost impossible to avoid when taking a stroll in nature. Light pollution is everywhere, and only the most remote and desolate places remain as a sanctuary for the true nature seeker.

I consider my photography to be about isolation and exclusion. Isolating Israel's beautiful pieces of nature, while excluding man-made objects from the scene - as much as possible, and without using digital manipulation to remove objects from my frame.

My intention is to pass on the impression of being there and seeing it, the way I saw it. These are some huge words, simply meaning that I try to take photos that look as good as the scene that made them happen, and making you want to visit!

This site features photos taken on various places around the world: United States, Peru, Wales, Ireland, Australia and more. Even though this site is dedicated to the Israeli landscape, these places were included too, as their hugely different landscapes were inspiration for the images I try to create in my homeland. 


For a quick impression, you can start with my Portfolio section.

For a deeper view, you can browse through the galleries, and mainly - Landscape of Israel - my main project, documenting the beautiful landscape of Israel.

And if you're an insta-addict, you are more than welcome to follow my Instagram.


Prints can be ordered for some of the images. If you have something else you'd like on your mind - please don't hesitate to contact me: I'd be flattered to help you decorate your home or office.
If you're a local, you can also try my Israeli Website - where you can choose the image and printing options to your liking.

Last, but not least, if you liked what you saw, I'd really appreciate your feedback.

I hope you'll enjoy browsing through my work. Thanks for visiting!
