Nathan Lanham PHOTOGRAPHY
I have been lucky enough to have travelled the world with my job as a chef. I lived and worked in Australia, England, Europe and South Africa. During my travels overseas, I fell in love with the architecture and culture of each city and country that I visited. I built a small darkroom under the stairs in my London home that sparked my love for photography that I have today.
I arrived back into Australia in 2006 and studied for 3 years in order to complete my Bachelors in Photography at CIT in Canberra and it is in Canberra where I have based my photography business. I have been working part time in assisting photographers from commercial photography to wedding and freelance photography.
Like chefing, I hope photography will open up the world to me and show me the wonderful cultures that are created by our enviroment and by the people who live in it. Most of my photographs have some form of emotion connected to them, and in order for me to do this, I like to play around with light, lines and texture to create beautiful interiors where you can lose yourself in the images; and striking architecture images that are abstact and bold, which captures your imagination.
I find myself living in an amazing time where people are being creative and bold in the architecture industry and visually stimulating in the food industry. Both industries are taking design to a new level and I capture their brilliant work photographically as they develop and change.
