Art Brokerage: Peter Jarver Australian Photographer: With a string of prestigious awards to his credit, Peter Jarver, Australian Photographer, is internationally renowned for his awe-inspiring and ground-breaking photographs. A pictorial perfectionist, Peter's passion for sharing the thrill of nature enabled him to capture images many photographers could only dream of. Photographic judges declared him a winner time and time again, and in 1994, he became one of the first landscape photographers to be awarded a Master Of Photography.In the dead of night and in torrential downpours, he would be out chasing some of the 40,000 lightning flashes. It was during this period he developed an intense interest in the beautiful and unique thunderstorm activity for which this area is renowned worldwide. Once "nibbled" by the lightning he was trying to photograph, Peter said he had taken so many lightning shots, he could almost feel when a bolt was about to strike. Not many photographers begin their careers with sky-scapes, but after years of passionate photography, he decided to expand these talents into landscape photography. Long an advocate for the preservation of our natural heritage and his spiritual love of the land, his images are captured in a way few photographers can. A fervent conservationist his crystal sharp images added a new and personal perspective to an old landscape format. His indulgence of ripe and fruity colours, combined with simple but dramatic composition, invoked an emotional response few could resist. Peter Jarver passed away on 24th April 2003 aged 49 years.
