Destin Sparks is an award winning landscape photographer based in Queensland, Australia. He relies solely on the use of well executed timing rather than resorting to Photoshop & digital manipulation.
Despite being entirely self-taught Sparks is an accomplished photographer with more than 70 awards under his belt. Famously known for his panoramic captures on traditional slide film, Sparks’ primitive methods inspire many enthusiasts and professionals alike.
Sparks’ passion for photography and Mother Nature were uncovered purely by chance when a workplace bet among colleagues saw his hidden talent unfold. This fortuitous discovery is a story in itself and one which made news headlines across the globe, including Australia’s own Nine Network.
A successful career which now leads Sparks to exotic and beautiful locations around the world is often referred to as his ultimate success which sees prints sold internationally. Musicians and television personalities are among the collectors and admirers of his work. However, Sparks will tell you that it isn’t about the money, the images are simply his life journey, or as he so eloquently puts it. “Photography is the story I fail to put into words.“
