Lewis Fogerty Photography is a professional photographer based in Erskineville, New South Wales
I am a passionate outdoor adventurer and photographer. Growing up close to the Peak District National Park in the heart of England enabled me to be outdoors on a regular basis. I developed a strong appreciation for outdoor adventure and natural landscapes. This interest eventually took me further afield, from climbing in Canada and Europe, mountain biking and mountaineering in Scotland, backpacking around South East Asia and more recently, canyoning in Australia's Blue Mountains. My interest has never been to push boundaries but to just be outdoors with friends and experience incredible locations. Photography was a natural progression to capture these places and experiences.
A few months after the purchase of my first dSLR, I found myself standing on the edge of an active volcano in Vanuatu photographing an incredible power and light display unfolding in from of me. Being able to transfer the intensity of what I was experiencing into visual form for the first time really accelerated my interest in photography. I went on to develop a greater understanding of composition, lighting, capture techniques and post-processing, and this learning process continues to evolve today.
I aim to capture outstanding images in the field through planning and timing to achieve great natural lighting and environmental conditions, careful composition and by using in-camera techniques, where possible.
I believe there is an emotionally connective power created by exposure to wilderness locations. I strive to connect the viewer to the environment I am photographing both visually and emotionally to create a sense of wonder and inspiration. View More...
