During the 90′s Luke Wynne was the set photographer for over 20 motion pictures in the Los Angeles Area, which certainly gave him the opportunity to get up close and personal with the celebrities. In addition, he worked for New West Magazine where his assignments enabled him to photograph celebrities in both their homes and in his studio.
In 1999, Luke moved to Italy where he taught master classes in photography and gave seminars on portrait photography. He also had the opportunity to hold six shows of his work throughout the Veneto region during his 12 years in Italy.
In 2011, Luke returned to the U.S. and took up residence in Easton. His work photographing artists in their own environment has been an interesting portfolio project. This portfolio will be the subject of his show Artists in Residence to be featured at the Banana Factory from March 21 to April 24. We’re pleased to get a sneak preview.
Luke is a graduate with honors from the New England School of Photography in Boston, MA. Following graduation, he moved to NYC where he was fortunate to work as an assistant for editorial photographer Arman Khachaturing. Luke later joined famed portrait photographer Frederic Ohring as studio manager and photo printer.
Luke’s images have appeared in such publications as Cosmopolitan, New York magazine, Apartment Life, Esquire, Shape, WET, and New West. His work was syndicated worldwide by Gamma-Liason photo agency.
