Luke Parkinson Photography


"Having been surrounded by horses for most of his life it was a natural step for Luke to specialise in equine photography. Carefully crafted lighting and a sharp eye for composition, he produces images of exceptional quality and beauty."


Growing up and being based in the New Forest, Luke started out in the world of Wildlife photography, this is where his knowledge and recognition grew. In 2012, Luke was shortlisted in 2 of the most competitive wildlife competitions in the world - the British Wildlife Photography Awards, and Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Unfortunately, due to ill health later on that year, he had to put the camera down and in 2014 Luke decided he wanted to follow a new path in photography. This is when he brought his first "L" series wide angle lens and started in the field of weddings. Luke seemed to take the pressure on his shoulders very well, however, it wasn't quite what he felt he enjoyed - so moved onto doing some on-location equine shoots. In 2015, after many on-location shoots working with natural lighting, he brought himself a studio lighting kit and upgraded to a full-frame camera with the aim to produce some fine art studio equine work. 

Luke has built himself up to where he is today by doing alternative work to fund his expensive passion. He now uses a Canon 1Dx with a 70-200mm F2.8 L IS and a 24-105mm F4 L IS backup.
