Peter Lik in an Australian photographer who was born in Melbourne, of Czech immigrant parents. He is a self taught photographer [ [http://www.peterlik.com.au Peter Lik Galleries - Fine Art Photography ] ] who took to the medium at an early age, and is now an Australian landscape photographer. It was whilst traveling in Alaska in 1994 that Peter's interest in photography took a turn and he began to experiment with panoramic cameras, previously having used 35mm cameras exclusively.

Lik started his own business when he was in his early twenties in America and was photographing locations like Yosemite National Park for postcard shoots. He would go back to the postcard companies and sell them the shots. After seeing some of the other work on the market and how his own was being used only for advertising, he decided to publish a small range of postcards himself with the money he had saved up from traveling. Lik opened his first gallery in his hometown of Cairns, Australia, which was followed almost immediately by a second in Port Douglas. He now has galleries in Noosa, Hawaii, California, Key West & Miami Florida, and Las Vegas, establishing his nature photography business worldwide.

Lik is mainly a landscape photographer, but cityscapes can also be found in his portfolio. His photography features dramatic lighting, angles and settings as well as bright, intense colors.

In May 2008 the Peter Lik Group decided to close three of its Australian Galleries at Port Douglas, Sydney and Cairns due to a downturn in sales [http://www.cairns.com.au/article/2008/06/21/4788_local-news.html] . Peter Lik Corporation CEO Stephen Borzi claimed "In an effort to focus attention on the burgeoning worldwide market, plans have been drawn for the suspension of operations in Lik’s four Australian galleries." [http://www.cairns.com.au/article/2008/06/21/4788_local-news.html] As at August 2008, only Peter's Noosa gallery continues to trade.
