Mal Austin is one of Australia's most prominent Christian artists with a camera. A former schoolteacher, Mal now devotes his time to capturing the beauty of nature and crafting it into posters, gift cards, calendars, and books.
Eighteen years of commercial photography saw him complete over 650 weddings and hundreds of family portraits and advertising assignments. In 2000, Mal began a new photographic direction under the name of God-given works, believing God had given him new works to do. He specializes in the use of a panoramic film camera, and his work takes him deep into the Australian and New Zealand countryside to capture many isolates with untouched landscapes.
Mal also works in close-up floral images with an emphasis on color, pattern, shape, and texture. While some images used in this book are from large-format Pentax and Bronica film cameras, most are digitally captured using Nikon D70 and D80 cameras.
