The Australian landscape is an endless source of inspiration for artist Will Dielenberg. Turning his love of ocean, earth and photography into a full time career …
From his earliest days as a pre-teen surfer on the beaches of the Surfcoast, Will developed an interest in photography that grew from his initial desire to capture his friends surfing. Finishing his education with formal studies in Photography, Will embarked on a partnership in a commercial photographic studio in Melbourne. Competing interests took over, photography as a career took a back seat and Will was off in another direction altogether.
Two decades later, working as a helicopter pilot in East Timor, the incredible colour of an early morning sky reignited the passion for the art and it as continued ever since.
“My challenge is to present an image that resonates with the observer, either with the pure beauty of the scene challenging the senses or moving them on an emotional level. It’s extremely rewarding for me to hear the surprised expressions of praise for my work in the gallery.
It seems to me that due to proliferation of images with which we are all bombarded in the digital age, most of us believe that we’ve seen it all. It is therefore incredibly satisfying to witness a simple image of mine having an immediate and positive influence on someone.”
Located in Lorne, Will’s “Edge Gallery” is a showcase of colour and beauty in Fine Art Landscape Photography. When you are next in Lorne please drop in to view the art of multi international award winning photographer, Will Dielenberg.

Will is an Accredited Professional Photographer and Associate member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography
Travelling as much as possible, which is never enough given the diversity and scale of this wonderful Australian land and beyond, Will is always looking for colour, texture and drama in the landscape. From image capture, post processing through to framing and presentation, the result that is uppermost in Will’s mind is impact.
“Some may feel Landscape Photography should depict a pure view of the natural world, completely devoid of human influence.
Others may challenge this sentiment with the view that Man’s influence on our environment is relevant and therefore should not necessarily be excluded from an image exhibiting the raw beauty of the world in which we live.
Does the image draw us in, evoke a mood or emotion? Perhaps the success of a landscape photograph as art lies in its power to mesmerise visually, rouse emotion and invite contemplation.
Then again, maybe it’s just a pretty picture”.
I hope you enjoy my work”
