Hello, my name is Luke Tscharke and I’m an Australian landscape and nature photographer. Originally trained as a Quality Assurance professional, I have worked for some of the world’s largest food and beverage companies to ensure the quality and integrity of their products. This same meticulous approach has been instilled into my photography, where I strive to create memorable natural landscape images from locations across Australia and other parts of the world.
The quality of my work has been recognised in many photography competitions, where I have recently won 2016 AIPP NSW Emerging Photographer of the year, 2016 Capture Emerging Landscape Photographer of the Year, 2015 Monochrome Photographer of the Year, and 2015 International Landscape Photograph of the Year. I am also a regular contributor to Australian Geographic Magazine, where two of my images have been used for magazine covers. I’m also an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP).
I have been fascinated by the natural environment ever since I was a child, and have been able to merge this interest with my love of bushwalking to be able to photograph some of Australia’s most stunning and wild natural environments. My favourite region to photograph is Tasmania, where I have visited many times to explore and be immersed in the world heritage listed wilderness. In fact I loved visiting Tasmania so much I decided to relocate there from Sydney in July 2017.
I have a large social media following across Instagram and Facebook, with over 95,000 followers. I am available for social media influencing work, group workshops, private tuition sessions, and I offer fine art prints and image licensing.
