Pete Dobré is a freelance photographer who blazes the trail for 6 months each year, capturing awe-inspiring images. Pete’s work expresses his creative flair, emotions and love for the natural scapes of Australia.
Pete’s passion for the varying landscapes of Oz comes from frequent visits as a youngster, to his Grandparent’s sheep farm in Barmera, a small country town in South Australia. He remembers the hot day when he was 8, leaving town for the farm. His parents had an old car. Within about 2 kilometres of reaching the farm gate, they were bogged on a small red sand dune. The flies were buzzing continuously and the heat was beating down. Sticks, leaves and branches were wedged under the back tyres, to get the car moving. His mum was in a panic but Pete thought that it was exciting. From that moment he knew that he loved being out in creation, with the sense of adventure in the wild. This is where Pete’s passion began.
Photography for Pete is an expressive means for visual communication. He says, ‘There is never a boring moment in my work. There is always something to photograph and I love being creative. The only limit to creativity is a lack of creativity.’
