Amazing Photographers. Peter Lik

Here’s one of the most amazing australian photographers: Peter Lik, who stands at the summit of landscape photography. World-renowned, highly awarded, and boasting a huge international following.

Official Biography. Born in Melbourne, Australia, to Czech immigrants, it was his parents’ gift of a Kodak Brownie camera on his eighth birthday that set young Peter’s course.

Entirely self-taught, Lik worked hard at his craft before making a life-changing decision: to come to the United States in 1984.
A defining moment in Lik’s life came when he was introduced to the medium format panoramic camera.

Lik’s stature as a photographer has been indisputably confirmed with his receipt of the award of Master Photographer from both the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).
He has also been awarded fellowships by the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and The Royal Photographic Society (RPS).

He has sold hundreds of millions of dollars of his artwork, has 13 galleries of his own and counts presidents and celebrities among his many collectors. Exposure from his NBC produced TV series, “From the Edge with Peter Lik”, has established Lik as a household name.
Two more landmarks for Lik were the world record sale of his photograph “One,” for $1 million and the exhibition of two of his iconic images, “Ghost” and “Inner Peace,” in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C.

Lik’s masterworks include “Ancient Spirit,” “Sacred Sunrise,” “Angel’s Heart,” “Tree of Life” and the highly acclaimed “Ghost.”
Each Limited Edition release is greeted with great enthusiasm by collectors and this has been reflected in recent record-breaking sales.
