Darwin photographer David Hancock enjoys nature photography, wildlife photography and landscape photography whenever he takes to the bush of northern Australia.
David Hancock is an experienced editorial and corporate photographer who works for Australian Geographic and Outback magazines, capturing images of nature, wildlife and people going about their business in the Top End of Australia.
David Hancock has published four books about the Top End : Top End by Australian Geographic, A Vision Fulfilled about construction of the Alice Springs to Darwin railway line, Walkabout Chefs which provides an insight to Aboriginal culture through food and TOP END life in Australia's Top End, the definitive book about the region. His nature and wildlife photographs are exhibited at Gallery Two Six in Winnellie, Darwin, and his images are used as editorial stock by magazines around the world.
David travels through Outback Australia by 4WD and photographs from helicopters in some of the most remote areas of the country. His nature and wildlife photography is influenced by seasonal change between the northern wet and dry periods. The humid, tropical summer brings forth deep tinges of green as the environment bursts with water and life. During the middle of the year fire burns across a dry and parched landscape creating hues of blue from smoke and ashes.
David photographs in Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land and the Victoria River district, as well as the Gulf of Carpentaria, Kimberley and Tanami regions. Sometimes he travels to southern parts of Australia to shoot specific subjects as he did with koalas and whales around northern NSW for an international client.
