Peter Lik has spent over 35 years pushing the boundaries of fine art. A self-taught pioneer in the field of landscape photography, he has become synonymous with pristine images of cascading waterfalls, ethereal mountain peaks and peaceful desert canyons.

Peter has been shooting expansive scenes of Mother Nature his whole life. Born in Melbourne, Australia to hardworking Czech immigrants, he never took the gift of life’s beauty for granted. Peter’s catalogue of work can be traced back to the essential moment when, at 8 years of age, the gift of a Brownie Kodak camera from his parents set him on a course for destiny. Since his first, fateful snapshot of a spider web in the family garden, Peter has followed his calling to capture and share the most beautiful places on earth.

It was after a trip to the United States in 1984, that Peter discovered the panoramic camera format, a defining moment in his career. Challenged with the dare to “go big or go home,” Peter did both. For the next two decades, Peter would travel back and forth between the United States and his native Australia, honing his craft and establishing his prominent position in the world of fine art photography.


I have dedicated my life to capturing the beauty of Mother Nature

“Growing up in Australia, I was surrounded by an incredible landscape that captivated. When I was eight, my parents bought me a camera – and after a fateful snapshot of a spider web in the family garden – I was hooked. My travels have taken me to the most amazing locations around the world capturing landscapes that I could only once dream of shooting. I am so grateful for the beauty of this planet and I will never stop sharing it.“

Peter Lik Partners with Non-Profit ONE DROP™


Charity through art has always been at the forefront of Peter’s endless mission to care for our precious planet and its communities in need. Over the last few years, the Master Photographer has donated sales from his award-winning images to worthy organizations, such as Make-a-Wish, St. Jude, Three Square, and beyond. Now, thanks to a new partnership between the Artist and ONE DROP, a portion of all national and international sales from the Artist’s newest release, A Sky Full of Stars, will go towards creating clean and sustainable water sources for our precious planet

Peter Lik and Non-Profit ONE DROP

This unprecedented alliance with international non-profit organization, ONE DROP – which turns “water into action” – is simply an indication of many more humanitarian ventures to come: “I have gotten such great joy out of working with so many exceptional charities across the globe,” Peter states. “Helping others to live better, healthier, and more fulfilling lives is an effort I will continue to take very seriously. I am thrilled to partner with ONE DROP on A Sky Full of Stars, and look forward to many more gratifying experiences in the months ahead.”

On the heels of partnering with ONE DROP, Peter has wasted no time in getting involved in his next charitable effort. Respected for its programs assisting Hawaii’s “women, children, and impoverished,” non-profit operation Friends of Hawaii Charities holds a mission very near to the Artist: “Every being on the planet deserves a shot at living a decent and healthy life,” states Peter. “Teaming up with ‘Friends’ was a no-brainer. They do such important work, and I am honored to assist the community that has embraced me and my work for so long.”

A delicate patch of green flora rests perfectly still on the water’s surface in Peter’s tribute to the exotic archipelago he has been exploring for decades (see above); it is the perfect image to represent the frailty and beauty of life that Peter and Friends of Hawaii Charities are working together to protect. Now available to the public, Hawaiian Impressions can be acquired through all 13 LIK Galleries across the country – a perfect holiday gift that will also bring joy to Hawaii’s precious people in need.
