Rory Wallwork is a completely self-taught, award-winning photographer who began his journey into photography in the not-so-distant past. He was born and raised in Northern Utah. Beginning at a young age, he has always enjoyed photography, but for a long time was never too serious about it. He took a black-and-white photography course in college, which gave him the opportunity to learn traditional film photography and darkroom techniques.
It wasn’t until he stumbled into a landscape photographer’s gallery in Las Vegas that he became quite obsessed with the possibilities. All his life he had been completely surrounded by a variety of beautiful landscapes, especially when venturing outside Northern Utah into the areas of the seven national parks to which Utah is host. “I had never really ‘seen’ what was here. Once I began to look, I became more and more interested in capturing and sharing these incredible places with others. Since my experience in Las Vegas, I have relied solely on personal experience, trial and error, and the inspiration of others to get me where I am today.”
