Duncan Fawkes' passion for photography developed as an upwelling of suppressed creativity stemming from his background in corporate IT management. With a love and respect of nature and the outdoors, he hopes that his photography shares the world as he finds it, in its many moods and forms. He readily admits that being alone in the natural environment is where his senses come back to life, awakening from the slumber of modern living. Duncan is a strong advocate of being true to your inner creative, believing that art is about self-expression rather than pretty pictures to hang on walls or trophy locations to bag.
A native of Scotland, Duncan now lives in the idyllic surf town of Yamba on the northern NSW coast of Australia, where he runs photographic workshops not only in Yamba but also further afield, taking people to places off the photographic route to provide a clean slate for students to find their own interest and reaction in the landscape.
