2015 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Winner
Luke Austin is an Australian born landscape and nature photographer currently based in Perth, Western Australia. Luke has spent time travelling and photographing throughout Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States of America. Luke is constantly out looking for new compositions, view points and subject matter to photograph while continually refining and developing his photographic techniques.
"I have always felt a strong connection with the environment. My passion is creating images that capture the amazing landscapes of our world. In doing this I endeavour to bring the beauty of nature to the attention of others and I strive to move the viewer to feel what I felt at the time of capture. When I am on location I relax in the environment and immerse myself in the surroundings. I am then able to absorb the intricate details, subtle light and form of the landscape. It is these times when I am out and about with camera in tow that I feel truly free."
Luke was the winner of the 2015 International Landscape Photographer of the Year and as such has been invited to be on the 2016 judging panel.
