Luke Street out on Safari

“Its always exciting being out there on safari. Some days there are incredible photographic opportunities and some days there are not. But that is all part of the job, part of the passion, the not knowing and always being surprised.” Luke Street is a real purist when it comes to photography. Although he uses digital equipment, he does very little post production work on his photos. He believes in capturing that moment in the closest possible form to how he saw it at that moment. In todays age of technology, Lightroom, Photoshop and a hundred other programs these kinds of photographic images are very uncommon which is part of the reason his work is so refreshing and interesting.

However, there are also the photos which just scream out to be converted into an artwork - hence the black and white image of the zebras reflection in a waterhole. Here he turned a moment into an artistic interpretation.

This week his other highlights were managing to capture a young giraffe jumping in the morning light. It is not often you see giraffes off the ground so he was lucky to capture it. There is the also the photo of the Pearl Spotted owl and Marula - the female  spotted leopard, on the hunt.
