Destin Sparks is an award-winning landscape photographer and social media influencer based in Queensland, Australia.
Sparks’ passion for photography and Mother Nature were uncovered in 2009 when a workplace bet among colleagues saw his hidden photographic talent unfold.
Despite being entirely self-taught, Sparks is an accomplished landscape photographer with over 70 awards and accolades. His photography has caught the attention of national and international media; National Nine News, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Australian Financial Review, News.com.au to name a few.
Best known for his panoramic landscape photography captures on traditional slide film Sparks relies solely on well executed timing rather than resorting to Photoshop, coloured filters or digital manipulation. His continued dedication to analogue photography inspires many landscape enthusiasts and professionals alike.
A successful photography career now leads Sparks to exotic and beautiful locations around the world, however, “landscape photography isn’t all about dazzling destinations and luxury travel” he says. “It takes gruelling dedication and hard work to capture the best landscape photos.”
One of the keys to the Australian landscape photographer’s success is printing extremely large. “Fine art prints should immerse the viewer and captivate its audience” Sparks writes.
Each of his meticulously captured images exceed the equivalent of 100 Megapixels, resulting in artworks that can be printed many metres in length. Naturally this appeals to the corporate art market who seek to license ultra high resolution images, in addition to domestic collectors. “I’m very humbled to have musicians and television personalities among some of the collectors and admirers of my Limited Edition prints.”
Between travelling Sparks’ also teaches the art of landscape photography via workshops and photo tours. “Through Instagram and social media, I’ve built a loyal audience of aspiring photographers. It brings me great joy sharing knowledge with those who support my landscape photography.”
