Born in the foothills of the Himalayas in 1978, Luke was exposed to photography from a very young age. His parents had settled there some years before, and his father was a prominent travel photographer and explorer. Some of Luke's earliest memories are of being in his fathers darkroom, watching him print photos taken in the depths of Afghanistan or the plateaus of Tibet.

Luke went on to study photography at the prestigious London Collage of Printing and then on to assist some of the UK's highest regarded photographers. He has since then been working as a commercial photographer in London where he currently resides.
