Kristian Dowling has been one of the top global celebrity-entertainment photographers for the past 15 years. Best known for his flexibility and understanding of light, he has earned a reputation of being a master photographer that can deliver striking results in a variety of challenging situations, without the use of photo manipulation. Working with the world's biggest names on key assignments, his experience has taken him to the world's most important events including Beijing Olympics, Cannes Film Festival, NY Fashion Week, MTV Music/Movie Awards, and on tour with Pop Star Katy Perry.
He is currently working with US celebrities touring Australia, and is also conducting workshops throughout Australia and South-East Asia named ‘Mastering Low Light' and 'Cinematic Portraiture'. These workshops are problem/solution focused, and aimed at training enthusiastic photographers on the technically more difficult aspects of photography: how to read light and shadow, and understand manual exposure in low light environments. The goal is to train photographers to be flexible with their photography and instil the attitude and skill set enabling them to deal with any lighting situation no matter how difficult, and come away with incredible results.
Kristian is also an international Leica Ambassador, specifically for the world's first professional Mirrorless Camera - The Leica SL.
