Anyone who is drawn to the diversity of nature will find a wealth of subject matter in the Australian landscape. A vast continent of extreme temperatures, colours and contrasts, photographers from around the world flock to Australia’s shores every year, to shoot their own version of our country’s grandeur.
The beauty of photographing the Australian landscape is that so much of our land is still untouched. The bush is a perfect example of this, where colours, light and unadulterated habitat collide in a truly wild landscape, where only those who understand and live in harmony with the environment can survive.
Landscape photography aims to connect us with the parts of our country we may never see. This is photography’s magic. It enables us to experience firsthand the sense of isolation possible in the outback, the colourful chaos of a reef teeming with life, the eerie stillness of an ancient rainforest, the violence of a wind-buffeted coastline or the tranquility of a sleepy bay. Landscape photography’s gift is that allows us to experience the emotions of being there, wherever we may stand. Truly the essential power of photography is its ability to tell a story.
