Skylum adds four globe-trotting landscape photographers to its ambassador team

World-famous landscape photographers Iurie Belegurschi, Daniel Kordan, Max Rive, and Dr. Kah-Wai Lin join Skylum's ambassador team

Bellevue, WA — Skylum has teamed up with four all-star landscape photographers from around the globe to help hone its software vision and make Luminar and Aurora HDR the best post-production solutions for landscape photography. 

Iurie Belegurschi, Daniel Kordan, Max Rive, and Dr. Kah-Wai Lin join Jerry Ghionis, Matthew Jordan Smith, Joel Grimes, and Dixie Dixon to bring Skylum's ambassador team to a total of eight photographers. The four new Skylum ambassadors live and travel around the globe, capturing the most beautiful and unique photographs of nature our world has to offer. 

Ambassadors Belegurschi, Kordan, Rive, and Lin are working alongside Skylum to make products better fit the needs of landscape and travel photographers around the globe and judge an awesome collection of photography contests, including those currently taking place, for which the grand prize is a free trip with Iceland Photo Tours. There will also be various speaking engagements put on by the ambassadors, as well as future photowalks and meet ups with the photography community to help spread the word about how Luminar and Aurora HDR are changing the world of post-production in landscape photography.

Here are a few quick bios on our newest ambassadors: 

Iurie Belegurschi

Although born in Moldova, Iurie Belegurschi has spent the last twelve years calling the Nordic countryside of Iceland his home. Inspired by the incredible light and landscapes, Belegurschi has spent over a decade capturing the beautiful scenes and seascapes, resulting in photos that have won international accolades, and adorned the pages of leading publications and exhibitions. In 2012, Iurie founded Iceland Photo Tours, which serves as a way for Iurie to share his expertise of Iceland and its terrain with passionate photographers from around the world.  

“I’m beyond excited to join Skylum’s talented team of ambassadors to help shape the programs that ensure I spend less time in front of a computer and more time behind a camera on a photo adventure.” — Iurie Belegurschi

Daniel Kordan

Even if the name Daniel Kordan fails to ring a bell, don't be surprised if you recognize a photograph or two of his. Known for incredible landscapes, Kordan's work has been published in National Geographic, Discovery, and Photography Week — not to mention Skylum's own product page a time or two. His growing list of clients including Apple and Red Bull, and as of late Kordan also teaches courses to photographers from all over the world on how to find their unique style and inspiration in nature. 

“It’s great to be a part of Skylum alongside an incredible lineup of photographers from around the world. I’m excited to bring my vision and expertise to the table to help Skylum develop its software to better suit the needs of landscape photographers.” — Daniel Kordan

Max Rive

It wasn't until 2008, when Max Rive first picked up a camera to document a mountain trip, that he became ingrained in the world of photography. In the decade since, Rive has won International Landscape Photographer of the Year in 2017 and travelled the world capturing beautiful landscape shots in Chile, Argentina, Greenland, Sweden, Scotland, Norway, New Zealand, and beyond. 

“Luminar is great in that it enables me to process my photos exactly how I envision them in my head through the cleverly curated toolset and growing collection of filters. It’s great to be a part of the Skylum team and I’m excited to help push the programs further and connect with the Skylum community.” — Max Rive

Kah-Wai Lin

As if an M.D. degree from Lviv National Medical University in Ukraine and a Ph.D. degree in medical science from Karolinska Institute in Sweden wasn't enough, Kah-Wai Lin can also add an award-winning portfolio of incredible landscapes photographs to the resume. Dr. Lin has explored and photographed some of the most diverse and remote places on Earth, visiting over 30 countries and winning more than 200 awards, along the way. His accolades include 1st place at the International Photography Award 2015 and being named one of the top 10 exhibitors in the world by Photographic Society of America in both 2015 and 2016.

“I’m very much looking forward to join the Skylum team of ambassadors. It’ll serves as a great opportunity to connect with Skylum users spanning the globe. Luminar has quickly become my go-to photo editing software by taking the stress out of post-processing, making it faster and easier than any other program I’ve used.” — Kah-Wai Lin
