Growing up in the NSW town of Orange, Luke’s interest in visual storytelling began during lunchtimes in the school’s photo darkroom. Since studying television production in Wagga Wagga he has worked as a television graphics animator, freelance video editor and as a marketing manager. He has contributed his multimedia skills to community organisations and arts groups and in 2006 was a finalist in the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards for Photography.
Inspired to capture the world through his camera lens, in 2008 he travelled to New York to study documentary photography. He then set off on a six month road trip across the US during the height of the global financial crisis and the excitement of a presidential race.
Returning to his home turf, Luke is back on the road as an ABC Open producer, traversing the central west to help audiences tell their own stories.
