Luke Edmonson

United States

Luke Edmonson is a master photographer, global speaker, educator, and print competition judge.

“Within the WPPI Honors of Excellence program, I've earned the distinction of Grand Master of Photography while also serving as a Competition Director, Print Chair, and as Judge. It was also a privilege to be one of the co-founders and first graduates of WPPI-C, the industry's first-of-its-kind certification for wedding & portrait photographers.

My Fellowship from the SWPP (UK) means more to me than most other accolades due to the high degree of difficulty in achieving it. Other past accolades include winning the International Photographer of the Year in the AIPP (Australia) APPA competition and earning Diamond Photographer of the Year from PPA (USA.) I hold the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees there as well.

Awards are lovely but shouldn't define us. My most significant joy is serving others, whether as President of the Dallas PPA local guild, being a former board member for Texas PPA, serving on PPA's Speaker Selection committee, or speaking at photography conventions.

You may also enjoy seeing some of the behind-the-scenes edutainment videos we've made for Godox easily found on Youtube. One of my goals is to advance the profession of photography as an art form. To that end, I'm a member of Cameracraftsman of America, one of the oldest, most prestigious groups in the world.

But you know what's best?

I'm a husband, father, brother, and son with two awesome kids and a wife that I adore!"

Luke’s photography style is Storytelling with an appreciation for Nineteenth and early 20th Century photographers and painters. Also, really enjoy a good color palette.
