Nick Rains has been a professional photographer for over 30 years, starting off in the UK with sports and commercial work before moving to Australia in 1990. Since then he has specialised in travel and landscape work, crisscrossing the country on assignments for many large book and calendar publishers including Explore Australia, Penguin and Australian Geographic. Nick was named Australian Geographic's Photographer of the Year back in 2002, and in 2014 was awarded the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) Travel Photographer of the Year. Nick enjoys packing up his trusty 4WD and heading off into the wilderness for weeks at a time, driving tens of thousands of kilometres and camping out under the stars in a never-ending quest for the perfect light. This book is a distillation of the most photogenic parts of Australia's desert regions - places he hopes will inspire you as much as they did him.
