Hi! My name is Jack Austin and I am a self-taught photographer and an avid explorer based in the UK. I have lived overseas for the last 6 years where I explored some of the most remote regions of New Zealand and Africa in that time. My passion for photography comes from the willingness to explore raw and isolated places and capturing some of the most surreal scenes witnessed by my very eyes!
I love my job because it offers me variety. My work covers several photography genres and layers including but not limited to Adventure Travel, Outdoor, Aerial, Lifestyle and Underwater; so in essence, no 2 days are the same.
If I had to pick a particular type of photography that suits me the most and most passionate about, it would be photographing humans relationship with nature.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
In the past, I've done a wide range of shoots varying from outdoor wedding photoshoots to adventure tourism shoots. With the weddings, we really wanted to be creative and use spaces such as forests and beaches to change the setting. We used different props such as smoke-bombs to make the shots more colourful and unique. In regards to the adventure tourism shoots, we would explore mountains and isolated location at early doors or during sunset to capture the best light of the day.

My photography has been featured in a wide variety of magazines including: -Wilderness Magazine NZ -Trail Magazine UK -Adventure Travel Magazine UK -Adventure Magazine NZ
