The artist

Me at the Carsaig Arches, Isle of Mull, Scotland - Self Protrait

Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1972, Gavin Lyons is an award-winning landscape and nature photographer who is self taught.

After living in Italy and France for a couple of years, it wasn’t until settling in Austria that he became more serious about using a camera. Living in the Alps with a passion for hiking and mountain biking, photography has become a natural extension for seeing nature in more detail.


Gavin enjoys the works of Wynn Bullock, Sebastiao Salgado and many others.
