LinkedIn Profile

Damien Peck is a Melbourne-based multimedia photographer, writer, videographer, radio and social media producer. Focusing on live music, sport, abandoned spaces, Peck was born in Albury, NSW during the late 1980s and has also lived in Hobart, Tasmania.

Mr Peck is a graduate of the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Photography, and Journalism, Media & Communications in 2014. Strong photographic interests include key themes of night, space, abandonment, and isolation which have led him to capture the darker spots of Hobart in the past few years. The ideas of emotional ties and physical tension in scenes are captured by the blankness of the night’s darkness and the vacancy of surrounding objects that might otherwise be in the location in another scenario.

His live event photography has been circulated within the Australian music scene with content in Amnplify / Australian Musician Network, themusic.com.au, Togatus, The Dwarf, Warp Magazine, Sauce Magazine, Optical Note, Newzulu, and more recently through social media on Damien Peck Photography Facebook page. A total of three exhibitions have been held to date including the 2013 collaboration with Elias Allanby for ‘States and Minds‘ live music exhibition. Peck has also featured photography in real estate, featured images in Tasmanian newspaper, The Mercury, and many live music and albums reviews across music media.
