Melbourne – Gazing up at the Oregon beams in his high-ceilinged studio in Fitzroy, just off the iconic Brunwick Street, renowned Australian photographer David Fowler took a rare seat in front of the metaphoric lens for a candid discussion of how he got his start, the leaps and bounds in his career that have taken him all over the world, and what drives his passion for photography.
Fowler is known throughout Australia for his intuitive photographer’s vision. With an expansive portfolio of weddings, candid photos, portraits, and sessions with children — a sample can be seen at http://www.davidfowler.com.au/ — and a number of state and national awards to his name, Fowler is no stranger to switching hats, or camera lenses, to fit the occasion. The quality of his work and his ability to capture images that resonate with viewers have made him renowned not only in the Australian photography scene but have even garnered him international attention. One recent project was a commission from the Italian tile and ceramic artisan, the Italgraniti Group. With wedding season heating up in Australia, it is expected that Fowler will be seeing many more commissions, for weddings and more.
Before he launched his career in professional photography, Fowler worked as an art director and designer. Needing a break from the advertising industry, he embarked on a trip around the world, picking up freelancing gigs for several magazines along the way. But it was in his personal life, and a romantic proposal to his girlfriend on a gondola in Venice, when the idea emerged of taking his personal passion for photography and sharing his talent with others to capture the most important moments of their lives.
Skip forward a few years and Fowler is the living, breathing testimony to the adage that if you do something you love, you never work a day in your life. Although he owns his own agency and employs a team of people to help him behind the scenes, Fowler continues to be the one who shows up to all the shoots, and it is his artistic eye and intuition for snapping a shot at just the right moment that makes the company’s history a story of success. And his talent for photography seems to run in the family, as can be seen in photos from a recent shoot set up by his daughter, Georgia.
