Peter Lik, Photographer

Gert's brother just sent us a link to a rather stunning photography website.

If you feel like wandering through Australia or America then you might quite enjoy looking through Peter Lik's photography website .

Peter Lik is the world’s most innovative and prolific landscape photographers.
His passion and dedication to his craft are unsurpassed, and Peter is recognized as the leaders in his field.
He was born in Melbourne Australia and is the only son of Czech immigrant parents. Completely self taught, Peter’s talent for photography was evident from an early age.

He first picked up a camera at the age of eight, and has retained a spirit and enthusiasm for his work that is equaled only by his unbounded energy and deep affinity for the land.

It was while travelling in Alaska in 1994 that Peter’s fascination with photography took a dramatic turn. Previously only working with 35mm cameras, he discovered the encompassing view of the panoramic camera and he was converted. It opened up a whole new world of creative possibilities and took him to another level in his photography.

Peter has some great work... I'm a landscape photographer myself and have lik's work to thank (in part) for my initial decision to pursue photography... certainly inspirational. My other inspiration
was Ken Duncan, he is worth checking out - www.kenduncan.com.au

And if you're interested my work can be viewed at www.samburns.com.au

Cheers
