Belmont photographer Mic Larkins had his dad’s old film camera since his teenage years without every really putting it to use.
Then just a few years ago Mic bought his first digital camera and hasn’t looked back.
“I’ve always had a bit of a flair for creative arts and just took to the photography and really enjoyed it,” he says.
“Now I keep my camera with me all the time – you never know when you’re going to come upon a good sight.”
Sunrises, lightning and the aurora Australis are some of Mic’s favourite subjects.
Followers on social media regularly praise his vivid, moody images, usually snapped around Geelong’s waterfont.
Mic completed a Certificate 3 in Visual Arts Photography and a Certificate 4 in Photo Imaging but has honed his art mostly through experience.
Now he aims to establish a website while expanding his work in commercial photography and family portraits.
