Hello, my name is Luke Tscharke (pronounced like Sharkey) and I’m an Australian landscape and nature photographer. I am passionate about inspiring people to travel and see the beauty in the world around them. I originally trained as a Quality Assurance professional with a Bachelor of Science degree and have worked for some of the world’s largest food and beverage companies to ensure the quality and integrity of their products. I like to think that this same meticulous approach has been instilled in my photography, where I strive to create iconic natural landscape images from locations across Australia and other parts of the world.
The quality of my work has been recognised by awards in many photography competitions, publications in books, calendars, and magazines, and work with corporate clients, tourism organisations, and charities.
I am a regular contributor to Australian Geographic Magazine, where I’ve had two magazine covers, and my first feature story in the magazine was published in January 2018 on the remote Western Arthur Range in Tasmania. I also contribute images and articles to the Australian Photography magazine, and I’m an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). I love helping and teaching others so I run photography workshops for many clients each year across Australia.
I have been fascinated by the natural environment ever since I was a child, and have been able to merge this interest with a love of bushwalking to be able to photograph some of Australia’s most stunning and wild natural environments. My favourite place to photograph is Tasmania, where I 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 100,000 followers across the platforms. I am available for social media influencing work, group workshops, private tuition sessions, and I offer fine art prints and image licensing.
