In 2005, Sydney photographer Federico Rekowski, was given his first camera. In that moment he knew there was more to this instrument than just taking pretty pictures. What he discovered was a tool to explore, a way to look at the world differently and to capture the world’s natural beauty, one frame at a time. 

The self-taught, award-winning landscape photographer is influenced by some of the greatest photographers of our time, like Fan Ho. What truly inspires his photography is his passion and appreciation of the landscape. He is a light composer, always seeking the right composition in every photo; to create mood, emotion and a different perspective for both, the photographer and the viewer. 

Federico specialises in fine art landscapes from Australia and New Zealand. He loves discovering, exploring and revealing what the natural environment has to offer, as well as pushing boundaries within the environment, in camera and in post-production.
