Born in Melbourne, Australia Lynton Crabb’s childhood was spent in India and Papua New Guinea. After finishing high school he returned to Melbourne to study photography at RMIT University before embarking on his career as a professional photographer.
Working internationally, Crabb has created award winning conceptual photographic campaigns for clients in the advertising and design industries and been commissioned to shoot projects for many recognised companies.
Good at creating the moment, Crabb's story telling style sees him shooting active lifestyle, property, hotel, business and fashion based projects. He is comfortable being sent anywhere in the world (or around the corner) to create suites of images encapsulating a company or organisations activities and message.
Although carefully planned and executed his images often have the feel of candid moments. His understanding and clever use of light, as well as an ability to form a good rapport with his subject forms the basis for his graphic and engaging images.
Previously Lynton has sat on the RMIT University School of Creative Media course advisory panel and executed pro bono content for The Burnet Institute of Medical Research, Alzheimers Australia and various other socially important organisations.
Crabb’s love of European film has influenced his style. With an inherently sensitive approach, his photographs are known to gain momentum with the viewer over time. “I feel it is often what you suggest rather than show that provides strength in an image” says Crabb.
Lynton is available for photography worldwide.
