Photoshop Battle with Peter Eastway and Christian Fletcher
Landscape Editing - Live
In this clash of the Photographic Titan’s we watch Peter and Christian go head-to-head in a photo editing battle. One image, Two photographers, Two final image. Watch and see who will come out victorious
Christian Fletcher is a multi-award winning professional photographer with over 30 years experience. Christian has perfected the art of light, composition, colour & post processing. He believes that all great landscape images have to have the ‘perfect light’ at their core, and it is this light that he is most respected for. His work encompasses everything from capturing the beauty in landscapes, to teaching others, and using his photography to reinforce the connections we all have with our natural environment.
“Christian’s pictures are not souvenirs, but images that help us to ‘see’ and to understand landscape as art. Light literally exudes from Christian’s pictures like few others, and this luminescent enlightenment startles us with its clarity and perception”. – Dr. Les Walkling, professional photographer Christian uses his creativity and the best equipment available to push the boundaries of landscape photography into areas that invoke serious reflection in the viewer’s mind. His unrivalled enthusiasm, passion, humour and incredible technical and creative skills make him one of Australia’s leading landscape photographer.
His work has been recognised many times over the years. In 2011, the Australian Institute of Professional Photography awarded him both the Western Australian and the Australian Professional Landscape Photographer of The Year. In 2014 he was again awarded the Western Australian Professional Landscape Photographer of The Year. He won the inaugural 2014 International Landscape Photographer of The Year with his aerial industrial images and was awarded the 2015 AIPP Western Australian Travel Photographer of the Year. In 2018 he won the Outstanding Business of the Year at the Busselton Dunsborough Yallingup Business Excellence Award and in 2019 his gallery won “Excellence in Creative Industry” at the Margaret River Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Awards.
His images are permanently on display in his Western Australian gallery in Dunsborough.
