Presentation 3rd May
Luke Tscharke: ‘Starry Nights’

Last year Luke Tscharke gave us a wonderful presentation on his landscape and nature photography. We enjoyed it so much that we’ve invited Luke back to speak to us about another of his photographic interests: Astrophotography.

Luke is a very passionate professional photographer based on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. One of his particular interests is wide-field astrophotography, especially images featuring the galactic core of the milky way. Luke has won awards and accolades for his astrophotography and has had astrophotographs published in several magazines including the Australian Geographic magazine cover in May 2015 and an article on photographing the Milky Way in May 2016. He leads several astrophotography workshops during the year.

The quality of Luke’s work has been recognised in many photography competitions. He has recently won 2016 AIPP NSW Emerging Photographer of the year, 2016 Capture Emerging Landscape Photographer of the Year, 2015 Monochrome Photographer of the Year, and 2015 International Landscape Photograph of the Year, amongst many other awards.

Astrophotography field trip 22nd May.
Luke has very kindly offered to follow up on his presentation by leading an NCP astrophotography field trip to Turimetta beach. More information later.
