"Until I discovered photography I merely glanced at the world and never really noticed what was really around me. The camera has taught me to look. So I invite you to look at what I have seen and I hope that you enjoy seeing the world through my eyes."
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 Ansel Adams. 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.
