Landscape Photographer, On Landscape Magazine Editor

Tim Parkin is On Landscape online photography magazine's editor and, along with Joe Cornish, co-founder. Originally a computer engineer with a PhD, he has worked extensively in publishing, the internet and the music industry, but today Tim is immersed in all aspects of the art and craft. While his background means he is completely comfortable with digital photography and post-production, he chooses to shoot a lot of his landscape work on film using large format cameras.  

"Our original goal for On Landscape was to create something dedicated to the people we both meet on a fairly regular basis. The amateurs who spend all of their spare time in the field, the semi-professionals trying to make a living from this misunderstood occupation and the full timers who have managed to build themselves a niche in a challenging business field.

"At the end of the day my photography is about learning; learning to see, learning to take pictures, learning about other photographers. This process also becomes a conversation with other photographers (who tend to be a nice bunch mostly) and this engagement is satisfying in itself."

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.

THERE ARE 101 LANDSCAPE IMAGES IN THE BOOK, BUT ONLY ONE

INTERNATIONAL LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPH

OF THE YEAR


Competitions are not perfect and with so many great landscape photographs (101 to be exact), being the overall winner, the top dog, the big prize winner, is going to need a little bit of luck. Nevertheless, that shouldn’t stop us from aspiring to be chosen by our panel of legendary and esteemed judges as the best of the best, the single most impressive landscape photograph of the past 12 months.

EVERYONE SHOOTS GOOD PHOTOS,
BUT HOW ABOUT FOUR OF THEM?

INTERNATIONAL LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER

It takes a practised eye and skill in post-production to consistently produce good work.

The International Landscape Photographer of the Year recognises the skill and discipline to create a portfolio of images that stands above the work of your peers.
