Hello and thanks for wandering and stopping by the photography of Sydney based travel and landscape photographer Allan Chan. I started Gotthewanderingeye due to my passion for all things photography, art & travel, and this is where these world’s collide.
With a background as an illustrator, designer and creative director,
my photography is heavily influenced by an artistic approach. I am passionate about the pursuit of capturing many styles as I find beauty in many genres, and I combine this love of landscapes, oceanscapes, cityscapes & portraits to make stunning pieces of fine art photography.
I was always super passionate about photography in school, and I became an early adopter of digital photography in 2002, purchasing the pocket sized Sony Cybershot. I travelled the world for several years, and it was here my fascination for travel photography went to the next level.
Capturing beautiful landscapes, local life and different cultures, I was inspired and hooked on a life of wanderings. From here several more trips ensued and I knew I needed permanent momentos of these experiences.
I created large-scale prints which involved layering hundreds of my photos together to create unique pieces of art that I could have hanging on my walls…. and it was this style and idea that really kickstarted where my photographic journey has grown to today.
The adventures and a life of wanderings continue, and the name gotthewanderingeye is a perfect reflection of the pursuit of capturing beautiful images. The passion for the craft is even greater, adding aerials and portraiture to my repertoire, and my photography not only hangs in my home, but proudly in homes, galleries and offices around Australia and the world.
I love the freedom of not being confined to any style or genre, and to explore different techniques, capturing unique pieces of fine art photography that Id’ like to have hanging on the wall.
If you are in constant wanderlust, keep visiting my site, follow my social pages or stop by Westfield, Bondi Junction where I am a featured artist in the ‘blinq.art’ gallery (formerly YellowKorner Australia), which is showcasing a selection of prints from my ‘Layers in the City’ Collection.
I take great pleasure in capturing these moments, and I hope you enjoy having them on your walls as much as I do.
Escape the everyday, and keep wandering.
