“I try to keep it real,” Herok says. “I rarely add or remove objects in my images; I might occasionally get rid of a power line or something that distracts from the main focus but I never alter compositions or combine different shots or do any big Photoshop work.” Rather, his editing focuses mostly on color, contrast, and mood.
Herok is based in Australia, but photographs around the world—particularly in the deserts and coastlines around the UAE. Before discovering his talent for photography, he studied fine arts, learning to compose paintings and drawings. This experience is clearly represented in his fastidious compositions.
