The Natural Beauty of Australia – Landscape Photography by Drew Hopper

The landscape portfolio of Drew Hopper is easily recognizable as one of the most colorful and inspiring bodies of work from Australia. His images are as visually stunning as they are unique, and offers us a wonderful view of Earth’s natural beauty – the way it was meant to be seen.

Drew describes his work below:

“I take photographs to define my experiences, to encapsulate these moments and share Australia’s most extraordinary places with the world. I’m very passionate of what I do, but am most passionate about this beautiful place we call home.”

A small stream runs through a mossy forest, and under a log connecting both banks.

“Through my images I express my feelings for the places I’ve adventured and the beauty of nature that I encounter along my journey. People often ask me what made me interested in landscape photography and not other areas of photographic art. The simple answer is ‘Mother Nature’ I find nature to be more compelling, mysterious and overwhelming than any facial expression, any man-made structure or materialized subjects.”

“Nature inspires me to get outdoors and be creative with my natural surrounds. I find this to be the most precious gift life has to offer and this is why I share this sentiment with you.”
