Hills, lakes and people.
Give us a photographer and a song you like.
Luke Byrne / Currently listening to Boards of Cananda.
How did you get into photography ?
Basically through taking shots of my friends whilst at parties or adventuring. I then started to pick up on what shots I liked and consequently picked up my style of photography.
Tell us more about your commissioned works. Are they more interesting than your personal projects ?
The majority of my work is personal. I feel my personal work portrays my style more effectively than my commissioned work. I feel most creative when there is no pressure and there is a relaxed atmosphere, capturing things naturally rather than forced. This consists of adventures or simply taking photos of my friends out and about.
What’s next for you ?
Many more adventures and I may look into furthering my fashion photography work.
Thanks a lot !
